Julius Wong would be a good one to ask that question. He was one of the first I saw at SI to be a visionary to what to later developed there. Looks like things are progressing well in India and Brazil. (Vision)Can you ever imagine a free North Korea someday? I would have never guessed a INTEL plant ever being set up in Vietnam someday. Notice not many companies want to expand in Russia yet. They are way behind China, but not in natural resources and people. The Chinese and Russian rulers are still busy making trouble in places like Venezuela & Iran. I also find it Ironic that some of the biggest & progressed Muslim countries know they must sell goods to world markets to make money. IMO the people there someday will force change. Of coarse Jack, I usually like to accentuate the positives, but I know world peace is a pipe dream.

Myself-IMO-China in 5 years. It's going to take a lot longer that that for China to become free from Communist rule, but I see improvement there. I see them progressing to what this country went through at a faster pace. This time around, they will do it with better trained workers, high tech equipment, and better efficiency. Google just got back in there with restrictions. Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)was there trying to get in that market also. I believe their people will continue to progress and their country will need more domestic consumption. I see more expansion of US and world based companies there. With their manufacturing base now, they will surpass the natural resources our county needs. For us, I believe the US can get by on fewer natural resources than it did in the past. Oil will always be needed, but Natural Gas is in abundance and can take the place of oil in many cases. I think were going through a big Natural Gas convergence & resurgence now in the US (it's Cheap). It's readily available, Land based & and Gulf of Mexico. Alternative energy has also made some decent progress this last five years.

BTW-At News Years I like to go back on old posts I've kept to see how things turned out.
Sam Citron posted this Five years ago, and note what counties listed at the bottom are in the most debt trouble today.
snip>The next European country on the list was Ireland, down at 41st place out of 66; Sweden was 14th from the bottom (after Alabama), followed by Oklahoma, and then Britain, France, Finland, Germany and Italy. The bottom three spots on the list went to Spain, Portugal and Greece.
