​Calling a spade a spade
Just exactly what is the Asian Century, and shouldn’t it really be called the China Century?

It’s like the China Century is on the tip of everyone’s tongue yet no one dares to utter the name aloud for fear of offending an old friend or ally or giving China too much credit for something that many feel it doesn’t deserve or hasn’t earned.

Recognition of China might also put a stick of doubt in the spokes of the massive, seven-years-in-coming
Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement (China is not a party to the TPP) that slides the U.S. into greater prominence with the countries of the Pacific Rim.


The current thinking sees the TPP riding into Asia as it, in turn, slides into position as the economic center of the world. 

The Asian Century

亚洲世纪
出乎意料的领导地位和习近平效应

 “亚洲世纪”真的到来了吗?
到底什么是“亚洲世纪”?更确切地说法是否应该是“中国世纪”?

“中国世纪”这一说法好像就挂在每个人的嘴边,但却没人敢大声说出来,以避冒犯老朋友或盟友,或给予中国过多赞美之嫌,因为许多人认为中国尚不值得或者尚未赢得这些赞美。

而承认中国的崛起,也未免让人对耗时七年的跨太平洋伙伴关系(TPP)协议(中国非TPP成员国)最终尘埃落定,使得美国的地位在环太平洋地区国家中显得更为重要这种观点产生怀疑。目前的观点认为TPP反而会使亚洲成为世界的经济中心。
