Production Leaving China

Last week, Jonathan Anderson, a UBS economist, released a report after crunching the numbers of the US and European Union’s import data for the first half of 2011. He found China’s light manufacturing share is starting to decline from more than 50 per cent to about 48 per cent. The beneficiaries include Bangladesh (up 19 per cent in exports to the US) and Vietnam (16 per cent). The first half of 2011 “looks a pretty convincing turning point”, says Mr Anderson of a shift in labour-intensive manufacturing to south-east Asia. India and the Philippines, by contrast, which should be “natural destinations” for labour-intensive investment, appear to be sitting out the action, he says.”

    Why not invest in South America. Why yeeet (high pitch zipping sound), across a pacific, when once can just yeet up from South America, with countries who are FRIENDLY to the states and “sorta” democratic, and many Americans speak Spanish already? Instead of learning some incomphrenshble gibberish only found in specialized parts of the world. Although Japanese is cool. (actual words with actual syllables), as well many Latinos do have an education. Although you don’t make INSANE money, you can still make a tonne of money, with minimal investment.. now the only problem…

    Yea I’m going to so finish my school and get a job down in Brazil. or perhaps the West, where the Andies are. I loves my mountains what can I say. I miss Calgary’s high altitude super powers.
