Sample text

Most newcomers are shocked when visiting their first Chinese factory. The methods and modes of production appear slapdash, primitive, and sometimes unsafe. The jobs you see workers doing are usually a kludge system the plant manager has whipped together to fill orders and keep the factory going. They lack technology, they lack know-how, and they lack the capital needed to invest in better equipment—so they improvise. This is the Chinese manufacturing juggernaut everybody is so afraid of ? Our driver finds the plant we’re meant to visit first, an air conditioner manufacturer, and we’re ushered through the gates.

To fly, it takes about half an hour. To drive, you need to skirt the bay, one of the three largest in the world. That should take you about four to five hours, depending, of course, on what you encounter on the roads. They’re building a bridge to connect Shanghai and Ningbo—the largest transocean bridge in the world, modeled in the shape of a flying dragon. When it’s done, travel time between the two cities will be cut considerably, facilitating the flow of goods, capital, and people. We arrive in Shanghai faster than I imagined possible.

So in addition to manufacturing, American service industries have a huge head start and a tremendous edge over Chinese companies. It’s going to take time for China to evolve. The Chinese need to train a whole new generation of workers and management, as well as upgrade their capability by several orders of magnitude. That’s time for the American workforce to prepare—and for American industry to build Chinese market share. In addition to jobs, the flat worldview also distorts our picture of trade.
