Six reasons for which China will not be the next world superpower
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Political Sciences, Serbia
There are six reasons represented in this article to explain why China won't be the next world superpower. The first reason argues that the rise and fall of the Great powers is more of a long process then something that happens overnight. Second one poses the question if China really presents the biggest treat to the United States' supremacy in world affairs. American reaction to the supposed rise of China is explored in the third reason. The forth part of this article gives insight in Chinas real capacities for the world dominance. Challenges that lie in China's future are laid out in the fifth part. Finally, sixth reason states that China doesn't really have the wish for the world leadership, at least for the time being.
