Excellent??? Mr. Fitness, did you actually read the article? Absolutely unreadable. It looks like it's been run through translation software by a couple of coolies.
No wonder no writer has put his name to the piece. The coolies responsible should be tracked down and horse-whipped, or, if cute and of the female variety, given a jolly good spanking.

Try a bran muffin. I meant the prognosis is good and that's all I care about.

Well according to the article Taiwan is the only country that has had 5% growth per year for the last 4 decades. This is untrue, even if it is partially true where is all the money then?
The article seems to have been cobbled together out of bits and pieces of nothing really.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there

Why is the prognosis good? Past success is no guarantee of future success. You live here, you know the issues facing Taiwan's future prospects: aging population, education system not fulfilling the current let alone future needs of industry, wage stagnation, a growing underclass, a lack of a sound energy and environmental plan for the country, water shortages, insane judiciary, corrupt legislative, etc etc.

Taiwan could well pull through and be the Norway of East Asia but at the rate it is going now I think it will muddle along as a Spain or Italy forever.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

not sure how anyone could think it well end up like spain or italy, even thru weak global demand in a low undiversified manufactoring based economy its still growing in pretty high speed for being the level of development that it is. I couldn't imagine taiwan as democratic as norway lol,
