…son is also because it makes…son is also because it makes a lot of the things its own consumers buy, so it doesn’t import much. (Part of is also that China consistently cheats, especially when it comes to intellectual property.)
The only answer to that is be more innovative or rather just be better even if the others cheat (I would like to stress if).
Personally I think the whole ‘China cheats‘ is a hypocritical response because the way the US was able to industrialise especially in textile production in the first place was due to the IP theft of a Samuel Slater in the 18th Century from British industry. Slater is now considered a hero and the Father of American Manufacturing in the US and was known as ‘traitor slater’ back in the UK.
However the rest of the article was enlightening and well written. Keep up the good work, sir.
