That's a very good point. The one who controls the entertainment industry controls half of the culture. It doesn't matter if China is becoming a bigger economy if the United States has that great influence all over the world.

"Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China" tells how it is. While the iPhone you may have was assembles in China, it was people living in the United States making the calls what will be designed. Even the Chinese designs on smartphones are basically mimicking what Google and Apple have been doing. That's some real power. Forcing the designers of a bigger economy to copy you instead of delivering new and fresh designs.
