Yes, I believe that China is ahead of the United States in technology, and this is something that we should be ashamed of. I think this is mostly because it is more important to the Chinese. Their culture values hard work and education, where people in our U.S. culture think that everything needs to be handed to them.
Yes, China is likely ahead of the U.S. in some technologies, particularly in the transportation industry. They have better, faster trains and have many advances in the automotive industry. Overall, the U.S. is ahead in most technology, but we really need to work to keep up with the rest of the world.
No, China is not ahead the US in technology. The US holds itself back as a country because of capitalism, and all of the technologucal advances that could make life easier for American citizens are held back because of good old greed. There are so many industries that would be destroyed if the US started pushing all of the technological advances we had access to.
There are many different types of technology and the development is often in response to needs of a country or region. Train travel is vital to China, so it makes sense that they would focus on ways to develop faster methods of travel. Train travel isn't as common to the US unless you consider the subway and metro systems in some large cities. Therefore it's not a focus. This doesn't mean that China is ahead of the US in technology. It merely shows that the countries choose to focus on innovations that will be of the most use to them.
