Chinese hackers blamed in breach of federal gov’t computer system
Most government computer systems here in the USA are Windows-based. Most other governments abandoned Windows long ago because of serious security flaws. Just sayin'...

China stock nosedive continues
China's economy seems to be slowing and this could have an impact on the world economy. How big a deal it is remains to be seen.

Is China's Economy On The Verge Of Collapse?
It's hard to say if any of this is actually significant, but it could possibly call into question assertions that China will replace the USA as the dominant world superpower.

I hear this point of view on Chin's economy the other day.

Robert Siegel talks with Patrick Chovanec, chief strategist with Silvercrest Asset Management group, about the Chinese stock market and the impact on the U.S. and global economy.

China is undergoing a profound economic adjustment right now, away from one kind of growth model which relied on exports and investment towards another kind of growth model that is more balanced between domestic consumption and investment. And in the long run, that's going to be good. It's very disruptive. That being said, this is a transition that needs to happen. It's a transition that ultimately will be good for China, and it's a transition that's actually good for the rest of the world economy because it's really going to boost consumption from China.

That's - when the rest of the world looks at the Chinese economy, they shouldn't be so concerned about what the output levels or GDP levels are in China. They should care about whether China continues to consume. And China has produced more than it's consumed for years. It has all these reserves - $4 trillion worth of foreign exchange reserves. It can afford to consume more than it produces, so that's one thing that I think is actually going to be - this economic adjustment in China is actually ultimately going to turn China into a driver of consumer demand globally.

How China became the world's second largest economy
China stays pretty quiet, but a lot of money moves through that country. They have money and influence to throw around if they want. It will be interesting to see how they use it in the upcoming months and years.

Why China's One-Child Policy Failed
Having more old people than young people can lead to some bad economic situations and so leaders in China are rethinking this policy.
