Chinese superpower bad when discovered

Superpower is not good when it is China now gotten to. A few years ago, international media reported that the country’s economic upheaval keen on the Beijing Olympics rave reviews. Now, the news of Chinese territorial disputes often involved in domestic facing pollution, corruption and other thorny issues. China’s national strength has increased, on the world stage as a more prominent role, its global reputation trapped in a series of challenges. This is when the boss difficulties.
Pew Research Center poll showed that more and more people see China as the world’s first economic power. We not only feel the economic balance in the transfer, many people believe that in the long run, China will surpass the U.S. as the number one superpower. But power may not spawned a good impression, the U.S. quite understand this. The most common is that power would lead to concern. Currently, the global public that China is also a way to selfish exercise of power. These views deepened the impression that China has not yet become – with the words of former U.S. diplomat Robert Zoellick – the international system “responsible stakeholder.” In many people’s opinion, China benefited from the current world order, but only a handful of contributions to global public goods.
In recent years, Chinese strategists stressed that their countries need to develop a comprehensive “integrated” strength. China scholar David Lampton, “China’s three aspects of power” – military, financial and soft power. In all three areas, China in the global public opinion on both face serious challenges.
From the United States since 2001, the image of the ups and downs can be seen to what extent the impact of military superpower image. With the Chinese hard power enhancement, Beijing will find military would have an adverse impact on the image. For example, over 90% of Japanese and South Korea called China’s military growth is a bad thing, 71% of Australians and 2/3 of the Filipino holds the same view.
In addition, although the long-term growth performance of Chinese decent, but its economic strength in the world mixed. In Latin America and Africa, on the Chinese economic influence overall positive evaluation, while in many Western countries, especially the United States, not the case. For example, last year we carried out in cooperation with the Carnegie poll found, fearing China economic threat perspective is quite prevalent.
At the same time, Beijing’s soft power less attractive. Make hundreds of millions of Chinese people out of poverty, get a lot of admiration for this achievement. Our poll also shows that China’s scientific and technological progress in many parts of Latin America and Africa are respected, these two regions in recent years, China received a lot of investment. But the United States in these two regions still enjoy soft power advantage. For example, the American pop culture and way of doing business on the far more popular in China.
