Another thing our U.S. chauvinism has blinded us to is the almost infinite development value of the as-yet undeveloped or underdeveloped natural (and a fair deal of human) resources in Africa, as well as Central and South America. Over the past decade-plus, China has either bought up or optioned a staggering quantity of these. Yet again, the U.S.’s shortsightedness to opportunities staring us in the eye is just beyond belief.

Wuhan consists of three national development zones, four scientific and technologic development parks, over 350 research institutes, 1,656 hi-tech enterprises, numerous enterprise incubators, and investments from 230 Fortune Global 500 firms.[24] It produced GDP of US$ 224 billion in 2018. The Dongfeng Motor Corporation, an automobile manufacturer, is headquartered in Wuhan. Wuhan is home to multiple notable institutes of higher education, including Wuhan University, which was ranked third nationwide in 2017,[25] and the Huazhong University of Science and Technology.... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuhan Our Western chauvinism & pridefulness — ‘American exceptionalism’ etc etc — have of course blinded us to the significance of these developments.
