On the other hand the big advantage those companies now have over the
western (cost-effectiveness) will slowly be reduced once the standard of
living starts increasing by a more succesful economy. And off course it
is not at all sure if none of the western nations (especially the US)
won't take any protective measures (the way it is now with steel,
farming, etc).

not sure about the latter. -- Albert Einstein
