The US economy is going to shit and China is buying up most of our debt.
We're slowing down, they're still accelerating.
Bottom line: China is the going to be the largest economy in the world within the next generation or two, period.
Being that we operate web-based businesses that have a global reach, I think it's reasonable to assume we'll either have Chinese:
- or Business Partners
I grew up in Flushing, Queens here in New York:
That's where I first picked up Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin). Then I went on to Major in East Asian Studies in college where I studied Chinese for 3 years solid (spoken and written) and spent several months in China.
While I'm far from an expert, I can definitely get by.
So in the spirit of global business and global communities, I decided to start teaching Chinese one word at a time to all those who are interested.
I'll be doing this via my twitter account: @WayneMulligan
So if you'd like to pick up a new language, I'll be posting a new Chinese Word of the Day each and every day. I'll write the word out in Chinese characters, give the romanization/phonetic spelling and provide a little context.
I'm going to try and make most of the words market/business oriented but if anyone has requests or suggestions just @reply me or DM me on Twitter.
