China still imports a lot of Russian tech to reverse engineer. Granted, not as much as it did pre 2000s, but still a heck of a lot of second grade military equipment.


It's just that they never really put any effort into light industries. The Russians have the talent and education system that produces decent technology but they fail miserably to market and commercialise it. They also don't stand much of a chance when you compare them to their Western/Japanese products


Russia does look second rate when you compare it to the USA and Western Europe of course, but still, they are ahead of China. The only real area where I think China is on par with Russia is probably train technology. The rest above mentioned industries, I think they are 5-15 years behind the Russians and 10-30 behind USA/Western Europe.


Infrastructure may be worse in Russia, but only as you move out towards the undeveloped and largely still open Siberia....where it's way too spread out and there are cities too widespread apart.
China train technology is on par with Russia? Seriously? Does Russia have maglev technology? high speed train technology?

Interesting. Do you have any data?

I'm posting on a forum, based on life experience, not writing a PhD dissertation.

Not imagination but life experience. I worked in three countries and travelled to more.

OK. Let me ask a question. According to your experience, which group is bigger in USA, A: intend to immigrate to another country or B: intend not to?

My experience tells me the answer is B. But your answer is A, isn't it?

No. My point is, compared to Americans and western Europeans, Japanese are more likely to stay in their home country.

In China, there are much more south Koreans than Japanese too, although Japan has a larger population.
When I was in graduate school in the US, there were much more European students than Japanese students (and a LOT of Chinese, Korean and Indian students).

I agree with that. But Americans?

But...England and France and Japan don't have a huge portion of their population, including the most elite and well educated, desperately wanting to get out of the country. Only the Chinese want to escape. The rich use their money to buy property so that they can emigrate to places like Canada etc. The poor pay people to get themselves smuggled out in container boxes. There is no comparison between China and the other three.
