Is China growing too fast? The country that currently lays claim to the second largest economy is experiencing negative externalities from their rapid growth. One of these externalities that does not seem to go away is the smog and pollution problem in major cities. As posted by others already, China is also undergoing another strain of the bird flu. As China pushes for more urbanization and changes to the economy, these impacts will only grow larger and in more variety. An article (link below) states that even within three years, China’s economy will surpass that of the U.S. The article pointed out that Obama will be the first president to ever leave the white house without the U.S. being the number one economy in the world. One thing is for certain, if China is to continue this growth pattern it must make some serious changes to business practices and government decisions.
