    They are going to drop the speed quiet fast. They have 2 big problems in the development. Their population is centered in elders, which mean that those are not productive citizens and they are maintained, and the other problem is the conflict of migration farm to city. Also, without speaking of the obvious political control of free speech and other problems.

    South Korea has the advantage, today. Their problem is that it's very centralized, and with time (as the speed they develop technology) it might hurt other areas that are not big cities.

    Another big adversary in technology is the India, they are the principal software developers and they have great programmers. But as we all know, they have big social problems.

    I agree with SK. If the Japanese actually had kids though, it'd be different.

    I call it many names. The two that seem to be most accurate tho are "Hell" and "Work".

    All the more reason to go to Sk. I was only going because the hot men and awesome K-dramas. Better living is just an added bonus.

    China is also sitting on a massive housing bubble that will make what happened here in America look like nothing.

    I think we are seeing the demise of superpowers, really. India and China have too many internal issues to pick up the slack when America finally loses its empire. Honestly, though, I think it's because what we are seeing is the death of the nation-state. America died ages ago, it's just a zombie being puppeteered by plutocrats. That's, I think, what we are going to see more and more. The death of the nation state and the rise of the supernational plutocracy in its wake.

    As for South Korea in particular, I admit to being generally ignorant about South Korea, so I won't speak on it. Although I do have to wonder how they, as a nation, will handle the grave threat posed by electric fans.
