On tycoon Ronnie Chan's criticism of Financial Secretary John Tsang's handouts: Douglas Bland - He's right, they should fix the city's waste management rather than doling out HK$6,000 to everyone. Keith McNab - Everybody knows the HK$6,000 handout was stupid and irresponsible. James Chou - This tycoon makes sense and glad he is reminding the city why John Tsang is just as competent as CY Leung. On whether President Xi Jinping will be a reformer or a conservative: Night Market - He'll do exactly what the CCP inner circle tells him to do. Nothing more, nothing less. Wingy Sandy Hui - Reformer on the outside and conservative on the inside. George Wong - A conservative pretending to be a reformer. Daniel Templeton - Talks like a reformer, but time will tell. On a survey that predicts China will replace US as the leading superpower: Sean Niem - Corruption, pollution, starvation. Superpower? With earth resources dwindling and climate change strengthening, it doesn't matter who wins out, all "powerful" nations are limping to the finish line of the human industrial race. Mother Earth has the last laugh. Hugh Grindstaff - As long as the US Congress keeps up its disruptive ways, China might have a small chance. It is trying it's best in Africa, South America and Asia through its economic power. Oil might be its downfall if sources cannot be found. Marcus H. Langston - Not even a remote chance of that happening under one-party rule. Leela Devi Panikar - We need some humility in this world not superpowers. They are all bullies.
