On GPS Sunday: Is China facing an economic crisis? And what traits lead to success?

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: Fareed will be speaking live with Michael McFaul, the outspoken U.S. ambassador to Russia who has just announced his resignation, about the Winter Olympics, security threats and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Then, Ruchir Sharma, managing director and head of emerging markets at Morgan Stanley, warns of the event everyone is worried about – the Great fall of the Chinese economy, something that would slow growth across the world.

Also, Yale professor and ‘Tiger Mom’ Amy Chua tells us why some ethnic groups succeed more than others. Racism or research? Fareed will be talking it over.

Then, technology seems to be moving ahead at warp speed – self-driving cars, computers playing chess and more – but where are the jobs? Erik Brynjolfsson, a professor of management at MIT's Sloan School, and Andrew McAfee, a scientist at the MIT Center for Digital Business, discuss what they found in their book ‘The Second Machine Age.’

    in america, the main trait for success is a connection to agencies with tax dollars. a few: facebook, microsoft, oracle. all with the cia. maybe even with israel recycling u.s. welfare.

    The West needs to work together on the NATO alliance, EU, NAFTA! Now, there is not the right time for Asia ... no China! The Western Countries want to be successful again, and work together for our future generations.

    If China's growth slows considerably (say to 6 or 7 %) will that create a world wide crisis similar to the US financial crisis.

    Well, China isn't like the US it imports raw materials and exports finished goods. If it did less of these things that might be good for the world economy. It also lends the US a lot of money (buys our Treasury Bonds in exchange for our buying their goods). These things might create inflationary pressure, but we have no meaningful inflation. It might make interest rates go up but our interest rates are at historically low levels.

    The greatest threat seems to be the short/intermediate disruptions caused by any large shift in the balance of trade.

    Other countries, including the US would love to pick up the slack in manufactured goods and see more downward pressure on raw material consumption.

    Does this make sense???
