It is like a self-sustainable closed fish tank.
Put enough plants, air, and very small fish in the tank, the fish will not die for a long time, perhaps they can live permanently. Its because the plants would produce air for the fish, and the fish produce substances for the plant to live. If it is balanced in a closed place, it is self-sustainable.
Europeans complex is the same. They are only thinking of commerce. Commerce is the basic circuit of every thing. If you can make some thing and then encourage people to buy it, it will create a healthy balance of jobs and production and market, etc. The banking system and money flow are like water and air in the fish tank. When every thing is arranged properly, people will live permanently.
Market is a very important factor in commerce. When you build a factory, you need a market. Europeans had colonies before, now the colony markets had disappeared; they wish to build a market in their own home, using every commercial technique. That is the thing called EU.
However, the Europeans had forgotten one thing. Commerce is secondary. First you need to create new things. You cannot survive in the old items. Next you need to grow. Self-sustainable is the same as not growing. You can always limit population to a certain extend, but you cannot do away aging.
The Europeans had stopped creating in a long time. It is because commerce had given them a good time. If you can sell, no matter it is opium or anything, you can make money.
But now the balance is gone. Only the complex remains. They thought commerce could save them.

Qin Shi Huang, the first Chinese emperor had been thinking how to rule effectively until he read a book by Han Fei, which run a line like this: 'It is perfect to rule in the mind, the next choice is to rule in the words, and the last choice is to rule in the matters.'
To rule in the mind is to promote moral, or li, which is a complete set of behavior conducts.
Confucius was very angry when his student Fan Chi asked to study agriculture. Confucius said, it is useless to study the method of agriculture. If the kings promote the Li well, then every thing would be in track and need not to care about.
It is very similar to Indian Complex, which can never get out from the debate whether desire should be suppressed or not.
Now the Chinese theme had been used for two thousand years, and thoughts had been knitted tightly on the net of moral. Few could run away.
Can you keep your creative mind flying and neglect or forget about moral?
9055 What is Chinese Complex 20170324
Indian Complex comes from very early Indian culture development. In the early times, some Indian leading thinkers created stories about the ancient gods. They are created as sex-oriented gods. The gods liked sex and admired sex. As a result, lots other thinkers and philosophers and religious leaders tried to down play the sex-oriented nature of the Indian culture. Concentration had fallen into the wish to suppress desire. And the Indian Complex had developed since then. Whether to promote desire or suppress desire had become the main concern of all thinkers. The Indian culture was trapped into this very concern and neglected other important issue.
Please refer to a book by Leechard: "Who will be rich tomorrow". It is written in Chinese.

Any one would tell you English is the most important one to communicate with the world.
However, language is more than communication.
Language is also a skill to think.
Chinese language has more connections with the right brain. It's a direct link to the thought through symbols. Though the connections are in many ways still unknown, but it is definitely different from English, which is more sequential and works in a linear manner more than Chinese.
English is the most important language now. Chinese would be more useful for serious thinkers in the future.

Wisdom is more or less like being wise. If a nation is wise enough, that nation can be rich.
But it is not possible to teach wisdom to someone else. A father cannot teach wisdom to his son. A teacher cannot teach wisdom to his pupil. No one had ever succeeded.
This is a problem could be solved from another approach.
Wisdom is a part of its culture. Wisdom is molded in a long history. When special way of thinking was set, people would think in a certain pattern.
No one can teach a student, yet someone can mold a nation.
May be this is the highest secret.
9052 Can wisdom be taught 20170321
Affluence is more than money. It is the total development of a nation. In a place of real affluence, people need not worry the bread for tomorrow, and he is free. His inner freedom could be supported by outer freedom.
For example, if he is Mozart, he has inner freedom to write music. In a real affluent society, he will have complete support. And the society will be benefited.
When mankind had reached such status, mankind has real possibility to step forward to improve the planet.
For the time being, may be we cannot hope for such real affluence. Our first aim should be higher income for everyone only.
Higher income comes from wisdom.
Wisdom is philosophy. When people can think properly, they have wisdom.
Wisdom brings in might.
With wisdom and might, you will be rich. That is actually very simple.

For non-creative people, you can 'produce' them. And that would not be very difficult. Like technicians, doctors, engineers, fund mangers, accountants, drivers, you can produce them like hotcakes.
But for creative people, if you can produce one Thomas Edison in Australia, Australia will be rich, richer than America.
The same is Musician. If you can produce one Beethoven in Turkey, then the Turks will be more musical than Germany.
But this is completely wrong guess.
You can produce one Beethoven, but you cannot produce the whole audience at the same time.
You can produce one Thomas Edison; you cannot produce the whole team of supporting scientists, and even his enemies, etc.
You will have to produce the species of Beethoven, and the species of Edison.
That means you will have to have the complete culture to be rich.
How to create creative people?
It is a problem of Cultural transformation. Without a cultural backup, creative people will be singled out and isolated and even killed.
They will not be rich anyway.
