This articals main point is that even though china is increasing in reputation of its economy, does not mean that it has left Americans below level. In fact according to the author, China’s “rise” helps America rise even more by giving it a wake up call. Americans start to work harder and statistics have shown that Americas progress continues to prove and makes it stay above the competition. For example “last year American componies exported more than $100 billion worth of goods and services to china”, this helped jobs grow more in America. Also China’s military has become very stronger but americans keep a close eye on it and instead help them make it better, at the same time keeping themselves a “Pacfic Power”. Americans in other words plays a smart game with the Chinese which helps in favor of America! China’s rise helps us Americans in a way that it teaches us how to make our strengths stronger than ever. Gives us idea that to keep maintaing our education, infrastructure and innovation in the same level that America is known for.
