There is no question that China controls a sort of "economic empire" in today's world but I am curious as to why the Chinese never built a colonial empire on par with that of the British Spanish or even the Dutch in the past. I can see how constant infighting can cause leaders to maintain an introverted political view and how an abundance of resources eliminates that particular need for empire but given how long Chinese civilization has been around and how big the Chinese population is I still find it rather surprising that we have not seen a Chinese colonial empire. What are your thoughts?

毫无疑问,在当今世界中国是一个有强大控制力的“经济帝国”,但我很好奇为什么中国人从来没有像过去的英国人西班牙人甚至荷兰人一样建立一个殖民帝国。我可以看到,不断的内斗导致了领导者保持封闭的政治观点,以及资源的丰富让中国没有建立殖民帝国的野心。但考虑到中国文明的长远,以及中国人口数量的庞大,我仍然感到相当惊讶,我们从来没有看到中国的殖民帝国。你们怎么看?
