Speaking of History:  The Fair Trade vs Free Trade arguments and the famous tariff wars that protected rich countries until they were so rich, they could "be generous" and "allow free trade" meaning they would not tolerate any tariffs against THEM to protect poor country agriculture, for example, are still not widely discussed nor represented well in international law.   Trade is neither free nor fair.  Countries behave much like corporations to advantage of their shareholders.

Flying scot, in global market “Survival for the Fittest” and maximum profit are the motto for all companies. There won’t be any such attachments or considerations.

Jennifer, we know that Chinese people are capable to do the marketing, but the question comes about quality of Chinese products. Most of the products from Taiwan and Korea are of high quality and obliviously with a little more price tag. Since pricing is the primary filtration factor, chine's products may get flourished very soon.

AU was recently raked over the coals by the US DOJ for price-fixing as well. Taiwan is right to worry about practices that some China businesses see as SOP. These tactics aren't accepted outside of China but they stack the deck in China's favor. The other issue is Chinese companies tend to be more vertically integrated, and this may be an advantge as outsourcing becomes more and more complicated (and therefore expensive.) But I haven't had any first-hand experience with China - developed -and -made LCDs. If the quality is good, watch out.

I suppose this is akin to what happened in Japan where production moved offshore and Japan struggled.  However There wil lalways be room for everyone provided they maintain a set of excellent design or manufacturing skills.  One needs to be the 1st or 2nd best in anything one does to survive in a global market.
