    I hope you enjoy this video!

    There's a bit of a unique situation in this video where the sponsor is partially the subject of the video as well. This is because they were able to give me a level of access that normally would not have been possible (Chinese factories are not easy to film in.) I want to stress that I did have creative control over the video but take my presentation with a grain of salt nonetheless. I visited a well-regarded, ethical factory which isn't necessarily a reflection of all factories in China, as you may know. I also didn't cover some of the issues with manufacturing in China and other less-developed countries since I was taking a more holistic, economic view rather than a person view.

              80% of the price. 40% of the quality. It does not win with me. It might work for the "paint it and sell it" used car flim flam crowd. Not me. I pay the extra, install the American, Brit or German part, and enjoy ten or more years of perfect fit and flawless performance. Do it right.

                What's with the 'competing' organ-doodles track? Needless! It does NOT 'highlight' the very excellent spoken word track. I am otherwise enjoying the Wendover lectures. Good material.

                  Treating your employees like robots is of course going to make things faster and cheaper. It also offers a terrible quality of life for its workers.

                        Every development has its end.. You can't escape that... Chinese economy is based on huge consumption of natural resourses... And if they want to keep their economy growing, they need to find more sourses and markets for trading... I think that war is inevitable in such a system... War for economy...

                            There used to be a good saying about putting all your eggs in one basket, seems long forgotten by this greedy world.
                            To do so with a despotic regime that kills it's own kids without a qualm, that invades neighbors and embarks on genocide, that routinely steals any intellectual property and laughs at complaints, well it's utter fucking madness. As well as demonstrating how greed can surpass all civilised notions of censuring the arseholes who do this shit!

                                          Nope... he meant that europe was the most pwerful and important region in the world after the age of exploration..
                                          Like how the dutch affected japan, the portugese and spanish affecting new world,and also how africa was colonised (not by britain only) and the vanishing of the ottomans by the hands of most advanced western empires.

                                        So basically, depress your currency and use slaves and you have a recipe for success. Ya that's a great model.

                                            China's growth is strictly due to the west aka Europe's mental need to place peoples into ranked classes. One could kinda call it the difference between capitalism and socialism but the truth is far more unethical. its because the wealthy want to be considered better than others, more privileged and more special. its about Vanity. Europe like the US, supports classes of its citizens, and the driving mechanism throughout the western world is vanity. To acquire more power and more wealth for special privileged individuals than others. As such laws have been created and molded to support the growth of the rich by any means. In the past, this ment conquering foreign lands, and slavery, Today it means opening up world wide business and trade. Globalization. decades ago, the western world had the upper hand, having money and advance technologies and with it, incredible wealth and growth for majority of its peoples. Not withstanding racism and all such things that comes from the growth of vanity. Western capitalism brought prosperity for many but as many become prosperous, so comes a greater desire for some to have more than others. As such capitalism expands on its greed, seeking ways to increase profit margins thus enabling the wealthy to have that much of a gap from the average citizen, aka the middle class. and for a short period of time it was good. The average ceo had about a 40% increase in salary over his employees. But thru the decades that margin between ceo and employee increased seven fold. How does this all fit into China. simple. The wealthy and wallst found a way to greatly increase profits, via moving domestic manufacturing overseas, mostly to china. land of cheap labor. And for years the wealthy obtained staggering financial growth thru globalization. And for years domestic work has declined. more important, the west with its deals with china had been inadvertently been giving china its technological advances. How to make better cars, better computers, better everything in comparison to the what china was able to achieve prior. Long story short, china's growth is strictly due to the west making them, a new superpower. As the middle class falters, the One percent wreaks greater and greater profits from selling its own domestic classes out. essentially the western domestic workforce, and as technology grows, so does the liquidation of the workforce, as one computer operator can do the job of what once was and entire department of paid workers. And soon not even that sole human worker will be needed, as robotics and Artificial intelligence will again greatly reduce even todays liquidated workforce. Imagine, A computer that can think for itself, could very well do a better job at running a company than even a ceo. This may sound very sci-fi, but its already been happening. The rich, have used engineers to contrive factories full of robotics all running off of Ai. Robotics that dont take sick days, dont require pay and not have an opinion, or unionize. As for manpower, thats where china has always come in, but like the US China will also eventually see the threat of computerization and robotics. because Greed and Vanity is universal. and as china sees its financial boon, so rises its own version of classes, despite being a socialist nation. which is just a term, and doest not shed truth upon the actions of its peoples. its about human nature, greed and vanity. no matter what nation you live, its government is power over the people , and what comes with power comes greed separatism and vanity.

                                                    Future though might be different.

                                                          Ironically, if China hadn't devalued its currency, they may have already transitioned to brand-consumer style of economy. We need other poor countries to develop faster so that they can also compete to the consumer's benefit. We may not have many jobs in the future, but at least tablets will half in price.

There is no such thing as free trade in reality. Never has been. When you buy cheap imports based on stolen IP, you are damaging your own country by selling out to jobs and profits controlled by rogue nations overseas. You become a market taker not a market maker. As a market taker you trade off jobs based on stolen IP and the profits and the GNP that brings, for cheap imported goods of questionable quality. You became an addict to the market maker who is the dealer of misery for your people. A country will never grow its wealth by being a dependent market taker. To all the insular thinking extreme lefties out there, you don't grow wealth of your nation by saving money. You grow the wealth of your nation by making money. i.e. investing, creating, producing, marketing, selling, exporting and making profits and of course providing jobs in that process. If you fold over because a rogue nation who's stolen your IP is selling you the stuff back, then that is your future being sold down the drain. You're propping up overseas jobs and national income and national profits at the direct expense of your own nations well being. Basically the west is propping up its own demise, which is why countries like China are laughing at us all the way to the bank and why they can afford to build up their military power, which will eventually threaten the west in a significant way. The west needs to get a lot smarter about this, because on its current trajectory, it's fast becoming historically irrelevant. I do agree however that US and Europe and the rest of the west, must quickly resolve their trade differences, because they are allies and clearly face a far greater threat in the future from the likes of China, especially if they keep squabbling among each-other, because that pays directly into the hands of rogue nations that threaten the west. The west now more than ever must work and gel together, otherwise it will fade into historical irrelevance.

Add to that governments active abetment of such theft thru currency manipulation, coercion of foreign companies to part with tech, a totalitarian government that faces no opposition to it's economic policies , scant respect for intellectual property and a large market...
