This essay stresses that what is even more worrying is the fact that China imports almost all its raw materials, ranging from oil, alumina, cotton wool, and other materials needed for production. China is less fortunate when it comes to availability of the natural resource. Even worse is that the country’s tremendous population has to rely on the very little they can. That is why China has to rely on exports. China’s cultivated land is only 8 percent. Yet its economy is 22 percent of the entire world. This shows how much strain the country has to deal with.
This paper makes a conclusion that the U.S., on the other hand, does not have to heavily rely on imports. This is because the country can produce much more than it needs for sustainability. It even has surplus produce for export. This is what helps to set it apart. In addition, the development that is going on in China is depleting the resources. The forest cover is diminishing, in fact, it is one of the worst covered in the whole world. This has only seen an increase in pollution, and it is adding to the global warming being experienced the world over. With the advancement of the Chinese, India, and other Asian countries, it is clear that Asia as a whole is on the rise in economic standing. Which a huge labor force, technological growth and an increase in exports, economic growth in Asia is steadily on the rise. America will continue to maintain its state because it is well advanced and well developed.
