Is China the new West?

I had an interesting conversation last night as I sipped cold whiskey with friends. Do Africans have anything to worry about China’s ascent? Do we want China’s aid? Is China’s policy of ‘non-involvement’  in the political affairs a bad thing? Is the Western attitude to aid better than theirs? I’m of the opinion that both Western aid AND Chinese aid is bad…but, we cannot live without either. So, which one do we choose? I prefer Chinese help; with them at least, you know what you are getting into. But what do I know anyway?
