And I do note you repeatedly attack me, as the statistics are what they are, and you can hardly challenge those.

My intelligence is irrelevant when assessing macro-economic trends. One would figure you know that?

Yet, median incomes are what they are.

Median incomes go a long way in explaining housing formation…..not “inventions”

And if you want to talk about productivity, the highest ranking Asian country is Japan at 24. China is down in the 80s. Oops.

You’re not very bright for someone that claims to be intellectually superior. Who migrates to this continent from Asia? The brightest or the average person? Who is more productive, the average white Canadian or the average Chinese in China?

Who came up with just about every important invention of the last two hundred years? The Chinese? Lolz.

“We’re only talking about people from the communist hell hole. I’m surprised you can’t figure that out ”

Figure what out? Your inbred parochialism?

“And if you want to go full racist, I’ll play. Which people are the innovators and which are the imitators? You’re IQ might be slightly higher, but you have very little creativity or imagination.”

Actually, assuming productivity dictates salary, it would appear Asians are increasingly the innovators. Unless, productivity is now defined as imitation? Or employers in the US place a premium on Imitation? Would seem strange no?

Admit it, it’s easy to mock Asians because they never fight back. Once someone does, ohhhh, White people are apoplectic!

So yes, back to the point of this forum, it’s not dirty money, as is regularly alleged here, that puts that Asian family in that house, rather, it’s a work drive and success, as borne out by macro-statistics.

The difference is that no bears ever said “Asians” we’re locusts. We’re only talking about people from the communist hell hole. I’m surprised you can’t figure that out, since you have such a high IQ.

And if you want to go full racist, I’ll play. Which people are the innovators and which are the imitators? You’re IQ might be slightly higher, but you have very little creativity or imagination.

Lolz.

Ohh poor baby.

It’s called “free for all”

If this blog can regularly call Chinese people “locusts” what’s the harm in pointing out Chinese people enjoy higher incomes and IQs?

Tit for tat.

Enjoy!

Of course, the earnings gap between Chinese and Whites isn’t surprising, given IQ scores

Singapore has the highest IQ (107.1), followed by China (105.8), Hong Kong (105.7), Korea and Taiwan (both 104.6), and Japan (104.2).

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Chinese American men had a full-time median income of $57,061 and Chinese American women had a median income of $47,224. The median “white” income is $48,000.

Chinese Americans also have one of the highest median household incomes among most demographic groups in the United States, which is 30% higher than the national average. In the Asian grouping, Taiwanese scores the highest median incomes, with Koreans median incomes significantly on the lower end.

IMHO, similar trends here would be expected.

So no, it’s not all dirty money. Chinese people just earn more.

Also, what would the stats be for Chinese households in Canada? I think that the 30% child poverty rate in Richmond may give you some indication.

I can just see the folks on here smugly judging Chinese people while sitting in a 60 min gas line at the Bellingham Costco.

Lolz.

Interesting, Asian people have the highest median salaries in the USA. This trend seems to hold here based on my experiences

“Asian” does not mean “Chinese only” in these American surveys.

I trust that your numbers are right.

Central Okanagan has 235 active listings over $1M and there were no $1M+ sales last month. Can somebody tell me the MOI? My calculator doesn’t seem to be working.

i don’t know about anyone else, but i was smugly judging HK residents. it’s not surprising that cantonese would engage in gangster tactics of threatening shoppers. it’s cultural. triads are a cantonese phenomenon. these protesters are probably pissed that they aren’t getting their “cut”.

“Okanagan real estate cools off”, BC News Castanet. http://www.castanet.net/news/BC/132464/Okanagan-real-estate-cools-off “The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board reports that January sales activity declined 15 per cent compared to the same month in 2014.” “The three real estate board areas stretching from Peachland to Revelstoke each saw a decline in single residential sales of at least 16 per cent, but each location tends to vary in sales figures among all property types by location and month.” ““The Central Okanagan took the softest hit in January with total residential sales dipping five per cent and single residential declining 16 per cent, while apartment sales improved by 12 per cent compared to 2014,” Griffiths reports.” ““The North Okanagan saw a 12 per cent drop in total residential sales and single family residential sales were down 18 per cent compared to this time last year.

I see we have a troll tag team here this morning!

BTW, I bought gas in Bellingham yesterday and there was no wait. It’s also not the case that Canadians are cleaning out store shelves or driving up the cost of Bellingham RE, so the locust analogy isn’t a very good one.

And I have a question for thinskin889. Is it valid to criticize a communist, currency manipulating country so rife with corruption and pollution that most people with the means want to leave? Or is that racist?

@Yawn – The last time I was at Costco, I noticed that people are filling their car and then bringing out 6, yes 6!!, of those large portable gas containers, up from 4 containers before. So I think they are saving more than $20 on gas. Most American Costco members now fill up across the street after complaining to the management with no results.

Though, the good thing for all the Chinese haters here is that there aren’t many Chinese folks there, unlike the ones here. So you can shop in peace from the locusts while grabbing those jugs of milk like it was the last pellet of milk on Earth. 🙂

@BPOM – Western dental care – cheapest quality at the lower price, just what his clients wanted so they can complain afterwards.

LMAO at someone in Canada spending hour(s) to drive down to the US to get gas…to what? save $20?

I guess Canadians are “locusts” now? Oh wait a sec, our brothers to the South refrain from that schadenfreude?

But don’t let that stop you folks from calling Chinese Mainlanders locusts while you’re in an hour long as lineup at the Bellingham Costco to save $20.

LMAO
