China's Eating Our STEM Field Lunch, But at Least There's 'Ecofeminism'


Recommended Posts


America used to be a tough place where people knew — with regard to the big world — competition was the name of the game.


Is that still the case?

Regardless, in some areas, China’s doing really well.



In fact — per a new report — we’re being bigly bested.

This month, Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology embedded the results succinctly in its title: “China is Fast Outpacing U.S. STEM PhD Growth.”

Since the mid-2000s, CSET notes, China’s “consistently produced more STEM doctorates than the United States.”

And the gap’s likely to widen over the next five years.

By 2025, the organization projects, there’ll be more than 77,000 Chinese-produced STEM PhD graduates per year.

The United States is set to serve up 40,000.

Of course, China has a much larger population. But consider the fact that, of students attending American colleges and universities in 2019/20, 372,000 of them were native Chinese.:snip:
