Power or Strength[edit]

It may be worth noting, not just as a point of semantics, that the normal translation into English in official Chinese government publications is comprehensive national strength, not power. Cripipper (talk) 10:00, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

POV[edit]

This was challenged:

Unlike most Western concepts of political power, Chinese political thinkers believe that CNP can be calculated numerically by combining various quantitative indices to create a single number held to measure the power of a nation-state.

At the same time, Composite Index of National Capability says:

It [the Composite Index of National Capability] is still “among the best-known and most accepted methods for measuring national capabilities.”

This seems to contradict the challenged sentence and makes it look POV-ish, so I'm rephrasing it. GregorB (talk) 17:59, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
