"reverse transference of knowledge"
knowledge always transfers from well-educated to less-than-well-educated. The US now falls into the latter category (thanks in part to "evolution is wrong so I'll teach my dang kids the proper way to bash a bible without no skoolz"). There's nothing "reverse" about it - it's the way it's always been, it's just that the US is now in the special-ed category and China, for all it's wacky communistical ways, is now teaching it's people stuff that helps its growth. Ironically it's the Communists that are letting ideology take a back seat to education now.
I can just imagine LCD screens being assembled, carefully, quietly and efficiently by chinese workers, before being "disassembled" into three parts with "PUT TAB A INTO SLOT B" written in massive red letters across them, before being shipped across to the US so that 'merkins can slowly and carefully "assemble" them again. (alternatively, fully built screens are shipped to a "quality control" factory in the US, where a conveyor belt whisks the screens through a room full of americans at high speed. If an american gets within 2 metres (6 feet) of the conveyor, cheeseburgers and coke are automatically dispensed into the far side of the room.)
