Problem with that argument is that that's a stage that all developed countries went through in order to get where they are today. For example, Victorian britain had workhouses, conscription, probably the worst air pollution in history; I could go on.

Also, preventing China from developing through trade might cause another World War, eventually. Policies such as you advocate were part of what motivated Japan to attack Pearl Harbour.

The children of today are almost ridiculously healthy, althletic, well fed and grow like weeds. Well, about half of them are; the other half are chubby and underdeveloped because their parents feed them processed crud and let them watch TV all day.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if the new-style healthy kids live a lot longer than the junkfood kids; the figure of 100 is often quoted. I wonder if the two groups will diverge and create an effectively split society some time in the next 30 years.
