china i'm here in the heart of the largest chinatown. there been four generations of chinese that moved to japan and they've been fitted greatly from the rise of this country economically but ironically the original country they had left has now overtaken their adoptive home to become the second largest economy in the world which means japan is now chasing the pack rather than leading it japan you're quite right still seeing you're stuck in the mud struggling to generate. growth beyond the u.s. for the sluggish. and i'm not sure either of those things are never going to change or many would say we're witnessing the beginning of china's era its economic clout is undeniable at the recently concluded g. twenty and apec summit barack obama repeatedly demanded that china lets the you want appreciate seeing below chinese currency. good a u.s.

republicans call to slash spending across the board seems to have gone down well with voters in the us midterm elections and where the economy in ruins politicians say they will be cuts in education and health care but there is one multibillion dollar area that they won't touch. with the u.s. debt in the trillions in the economy still in the toilet it's no surprise politicians in washington are calling for this solution it's across the board spending cuts and in fact it was the rallying cry heard round the cable channel talks on midterm election night when you get right down to the details so charity made here medicaid you can everything that is not what i say it looks a lot more clear that across the board cuts really exclude a fifty eight percent chunk of the budget and i mean the flight has turned to spending would you cut defense across the board as well as the best example of you do you do not cut defense that how can politicians afford not to touch the six hundred billion dollars a year elephant in the discretionary room. that rises to over
1:07 am
a trillion dollars depending on what you factor into what you're calling defense minutes a politician democratic or republican or a particular session of congress begins to reduce significantly cut spending there's an immediate outcry and those congressional districts that are impacted. i'm sure it's political and hey being a superpower doesn't come cheap it's a question of maintaining ready the capability to project force in other words it costs a lot of money to support this it's our empire we have an empire we have half a million of our troops in other people's countries all over the world. maybe the spending isn't that big of a deal when you put it like that sounds like a huge giant number of terms of u.s. dollars but we have a fourteen trillion dollar economy but here is what else is quickly approaching fourteen trillion dollars the u.s. debt get the u.s. continues to demand spending almost as much on defense as the rest of the world

1:09 am
power and we can't have credit card imperialism we can't be the policemen of the world because we can't afford it we're going to cut defense drastically but with the will on capitol hill looking more like this if you do you do not cut defense and the president overseeing this astronomical defense driven debt what does this really mean for the country it means that mr obama is trying to turn the united states into a third world country just as george bush did and just as clinton just as reagan did so there's been a constant movement of the united states to run up foreign debt without any ability to pay or even without any intention to pay and when that credit card is maxed out that tough talk we're hearing now that you're going to be falling on defense and feeling. more in mr r t new york. and there are always more stories on our website r.t. dot com here's a quick preview of what my catcher write while forecasters predict the coldest
