    Moxxey – The majority of consumer electronics manufacturing these days takes place on mainland China not Taiwan. When Taiwan did have lower wages it did take place there. Nowadays Taiwan for the past 10-15 years has been mainly focused on high end electronics manufacturing. Such as: High end keyboards, high end scanners, etc... The wages in Taiwan

    Tournedos – I am not making stuff up. There are many companies who choose to outsource their higher end products to Taiwan rather than mainland China. If you look at higher end computer products, including high quality mechanical keyboards that cost $100-200 they are made in Taiwan and not mainland China. It's the same story with many GPS

    [quote user="Puncher"] So it's quite OK to pay Czech workers a lot less than their Danish counterparts but entirely unfair to pay Chinese less than Czech employees! How do you know that the wages paid by the Chinese assembler are not "fair for the region"? Following your reasoning then everyone should be paid at Danish rates

    Bypahtec – B&O has already outsourced its entry level products to china. So it HAS happened... unlike in the case of Lotus being bought out by a Chinese company which hasn't happened. Bayerische – Right now they don't, if they do in the future, then I will not be buying Nokia anymore. Puncher – It's not about “owning

    [quote user="burantek"] I guess you missed the post immediately above yours... SHOCKER. Apparently Jonathan is now outsourcing to John.

    [quote user="burantek"] The only merit in that comment... is what I origanlly thought... YOU are A1 certifiable. [/quote] Well isn't it odd that someone named John instead of Johnathan who is also from Melbourne, suddenly starts to contribute to the forum under the name John as soon as "Jonathan" promises to stop contributing

    [quote user="burantek"] Dkatz... I love you. I would hire you in a skinny second to wave my corporate flag! No questions asked... But that is it... I appreciate your glimpses of how the corporate world functions in world corporate, but from someone who actually lives it rather than has studied it... which I respect... Welcome to 2012. [/quote

    [quote user="symmes"] @John. Great summary and question. The answer is Asian. RR is German, and they were smart not to call it a 9-Series. Pull the German bits out and you have a couch. So is Mini. Chrysler is Italian. I am impressed with the fortitude and intelligence behind so many of the postings, and have learned a lot, little of which

    In regards to China's car manufacturing. It will be a long way until China gains the engineering and innovation needed to produce a decent car. Look at the current Chinese cars on offer.
