Re: @AC It's had its day.
You do have a point about high end goods.
But how many high end goods can you think of are built in China?
And the comparison is more like high end electronic devices, remember JVC, Panasonic, they are still around but they are not the players they used to be, its Samsung and LG.
Nobody crows about their state of the art electronic kit from the 70s (outside hardcore anorak's)
