Ten million? This number never ceases to grow. And which Socialist
government did you have in mind?

Do you know what they mean by consultants?
Are you SURE they aren't doctors? Do you know what a GPs is?
How about GP as General Practice, and Consultants being specialists.
For further assistance, see:
I suspect there has been a substantial increase in the number of
Consultants specializing in elderly medical issues.

China has 4 times the population of the US so for them to catch up to
the US they have to have 4 times the GDP. Try the math again. Comes to
around 60 years.
Further your reasoning about time being less is severely flawed for one
basic reason. There is one and only one reason why China is capable of
growing at 10% per year. It is because there economy is so low now.
(Kind of like a company advertizing that it is the "fastest growing"
company in the market. Almost always implies that they are just about
Mature economies like the US and Europe simply can't grow at that rate.
And neither can China for very long. As China improves from "Somalia
level almost 4th world poor" to something similar to, say, Thailand
they will not be able to sustain 10% growth. Simply impossible.
So if you include that simply economic fact into your equation then
unless the US collapses China will not catch it this century at all.

That would be the National Socialist government that ran Germany at the
time. Perhaps you've heard of them?

Oh yeah, they had that odd form of socialized medicine with Doctors like
Dr. Josef Mengele. I don't think he invented St. Josef's Aspirin for
