Will China Become the Next Hegemonic Superpower?

Richard Lynn

Published: 2002/09/01

Abstract

The author agrees with Ellis's comment that the Chinese have shown less creative achievement than Europeans during the last five centuries, but argues that over a longer time span Oriental achievements have matched those of Europeans and that if they were to embark on a eugenic program they could surpass Caucasoids. He also accepts Ellis's second point that if and when the Chinese secure world hegemony they might well repopulate the remainder of the world.
