The International Business Times presents a startling claim and a chart to go with it:

China’s economy is heavily dependent on manufacturing and exports; its citizens consume only a fraction of all the goods made in the country, and the rest are exported to the U.S., Europe and other markets.

In fact, China makes so much stuff that if it suddenly decided to stop, most of the rest of the world would experience impossibly high demand for many "essentials" of modern life -- things like air conditioners, cell phones and personal computers.

The chart, which includes the stat that 90.6 percent of all personal computers produced in 2011 were made in China, is here.
