Above is the ONLY solution. To train and build oneself to be a conduit between Asia and the USA, in an attempt to enrich Asia and build ourselves a NEW identity, an international identity as a new cosmopolitan elite, training in the USA and then setting up businesses, honing professional skills, and generating wealth in Asia.
It will not come easy. Western hegemony cannot be overturned in a decade, and probably not even in our lifetimes.
