'My own great fear is that history will repeat itself in China when the current boom comes to an end. In my view economic growth based on a western capitalist model is unsustainable (不能维持的). When it ends, what then?' [Tal_China's Lost Girls].  This is a quote from another thread but I love doomsday predictions so much I think this deserves separate discussion. 

What do poddies think that [China's] 'economic growth is based on a western capitalist model' means? 

I am a firm believer that the cultures are miles apart - this means that I also bbelieve that the mechanics of the economy are miles apart. 

Does anyone believe that China is mindlessly aping the econommic policies of the West?
