    An interesting though not entirely factual article from Asia Times. While I have little doubt the economic potential of overseas Chinese--they certainly flaunt their wealth in the safety of the US, Canada, and Singapore--I very much doubt they will obtain the necessary cohesion to become the world's "third largest economy."

    One thing which I do take some issue with...I know several dozen Chinese here in the US (mainlanders, of course) who are so decidedly pro-Beijing that I sometimes wonder why they're in the US and Canada in the first place. But then it hits me: they're enjoying the freedoms still elusive in the motherland. :)
