But the American have a great ability to make money using their high technology to produce some innovative productions and many other ways.

This is a common, if not growing, trend that has emerged in global markets. Due to China’s incredibly low labour cost rates numerous companies have outsourced production to China. As such China dominates the manufacturing of the majority of the world’s goods. However though this has led to rapid employment of lower skilled labourers therefore cannot hope to compete with the rest of the developed world in a market for value added goods. Furthermore China’s export driven economy has only remained sustainable and
