I guess you should explain that to your adopted homeland then. They don't seem to agree with you.
How so? Small scale research in no way conflicts with the economy. Deployment is a separate issue.
If it's totally uneconomical, as you are convinced it is, why bother? Why bother building any nuclear, current gen (which China is doing in a big way) or researching into next gen at all?
Apparently you know something that the Chinese government doesn't. Obviously they disagree with you by their actions.
By the way, they will have this up and running in much less then 20 years...no technological hurdles remain.
