    They are copycats, not innovators.

    Guess which one is the best money spent?

    @Ms. Ima

    Doubtful. Unless the Chinese really allow an open society, they aren’t going to compete with the U.S., Japan or Europe on innovation. So, they resort to theft of ideas.

    They badly want to lock us out of the opportunity to reap the benefits of selling the crap we buy, to the Chinese market. They are trying to develop the ability to “go it alone”, but like the Soviet Union, will ultimately fail.

    In the meantime, as long as our corporate masters skim enough from China’s growth, they won’t rock the boat. Sorry if that disrupts your simplistic world view.

    And same goes for South Korea.
    Imitation is the first step to innovation.
    These countries prioritise high quality education. As a consequence, China is run by engineers rather than politicians/lawyers.

    Do you remember that town in Japan called Usa?
    They would stamp, Made in Usa on products.

    Japan may not be as high tech as we think.
    Fax machines are in great use there. The old people want to see things printed out, they don’t trust the computer screens.

    Yeah, but Japan was only able to move on from knockoffs because they emulated our open society. If the Chinese want to stay the course, they’ll have to do the same. Sooner or later, they will be forced to move off of their current ‘middle course’.

    IMO, the most open & tolerant cultures wind up making the big advances & generally being dominant.

    Someone pointed out that China lost a lot of imagination during the Mao years, now they are having a difficult time being creative.
