"Tell your children to learn Mandarin," is a phrase that may once have been uttered with an unthinking lightheartedness. But the tone has become far more earnest and urgent in recent years, as business has come to grips with just how important that economy and, ultimately, that culture, is going to be in the 21st century.

The prevailing economic crisis may well have taught us that the decoupling thesis was proffered prematurely. However, the unexpectedly sharp recovery of some Asian economies, including the highly export-oriented Chinese economy, shows that it has been able to decouple at least a little from the consumer habits of the West in general, and America in particular.

A recent Economist article highlighted this point saying that, while cynics see the current rebound as something of a statistical fraud, there was no question that industrial production did indeed rise in the second quarter in China and several other Asian economies. This increase in output was attributed to a range of factors, the most important of which was arguably a rise in domestic spending as consumers embraced the fiscal stimulus measures.

Still, there is no question that the Chinese consumer will not be in a position displace the Western consumer for some time, which is also why there is lingering concern about how long it might take the battered American consumer to rise again. A theme that is amplified in our cover story this week, where a leading Chinese automotive producer explains why it is so important for it to be perceived as a reliable brand and for its products to be taken seriously in the rest of the world, especially in the West.

The impression the writer of the article received during a recent tour of Chinese car factories was that the company is more than serious about raising its status in the world, through a bug push on research, quality production and the integration of new-generation cars, such as electric vehicles, into its product offering.

On reading the article, I'm sure you will agree that there is tremendous wisdom in the suggestion that our kids learn Mandarin. But at the pace things are going, it might be wise for all of us to go back to language classes!
