  •  Then it's strange that we still manufacture (0+ / 0-)

    about as much stuff as China, isn't it?

    With many fewer people, to boot! (yeah, that's bad for workers, I suppose, but IS a counterpoint to your allegation that their manufacturing is way better than ours).

    •  I think you missed the point (0+ / 0-)

      Just in Shenzen alone there is 1 million people to manufacture. China cant get enough jobs for the size of their population. China could automate but they dont. That technology already exists yet they dont implement it because it would put people out of work.
      Also design changes would require retooling should they automate. People are more flexible to changes
