    I hope you enjoy this video!
    There's a bit of a unique situation in this video where the sponsor is partially the subject of the video as well. This is because they were able to give me a level of access that normally would not have been possible (Chinese factories are not easy to film in.) I want to stress that I did have creative control over the video but take my presentation with a grain of salt nonetheless. I visited a well-regarded, ethical factory which isn't necessarily a reflection of all factories in China, as you may know. I also didn't cover some of the issues with manufacturing in China and other less-developed countries since I was taking a more holistic, economic view rather than a person view.

      Have to call "bullsh!t" on the play. LOL You may of had "creative control", but the factory was clearly staged. Anyone who's ever seen inside a Chinese factory, knows that the places are way over crowded. In the factory you visited there were no more then (4) people on the assembly line at any given time. *STAGED!* LOL

    Listen sir you can say Chinese manufacturing is good but I don't think so because all the chips that they make all of the stuff that they make brakes I got brand new truck that it's not acting right and these parts were made in China even though they have German names on them or they might have an American name on them there still were made in China it is not even that my cell phone which is a note 9 doesn't even work right because of that reason so I don't know what the hell you talkin about they win the manufacturing War not they don't not by fire we need to get rid of this s*** and take it back to the way it used to be like Trump says the way America used to be and not in the way of saying that they're going to get out here and make people go back to race Wars and on the other stuff but it's about us going back to the country we used to be the manufacturing country when we used to sell stuff to people people to say it was American-made so they know it was going to last when I had a frigerator before it lasted 30 years without quitting now frigerator doesn't last was 6 years same thing with washing machines Bass the last 30 years now you be lucky if it'll go 6 years without calling somebody to be fixed

    -Protectionism through tariffs.
    -Very little environmental regulations.
    -Low wages.
    -Gov. subsidies galore
    -Higher average I.Q. population.
    That last one is especially important for productivity.
    Not unusual for east Asian companies to have 5x to 17x the productivity per worker compared to the U.S.
    Especially so because most of our factory workers are from the bottom I.Q. portion of our population where theirs is mixed.

      You think the left is brainwashed yet you lack a full understanding. Clinton did indeed expand Free-trade, however this was more likely him "crossing the isle" for that is generally a conservative stance, which is how it passed, he was working with a Republican controlled house. But really it is American, for we hoped that would could influence their human rights. Now, partially thanks to Trump Americans are waking up to their mistakes that had continued to be promulgated under Republican Presidents.

      It was our country that was responsible, not one party and certainly not one person and it will take the Nation and World to fix it. As for your hatred of the Left, there are very few Marxists in this country or anything close to it, certainly not Bill Clinton. If you want to help enlighten the Left you'd have more luck with love than hate.

    • Randall Slaughter

      @Disc Jockey Disc Golf Oh I understand what it is completely. Government seizing control of the means of production - it's called _Communism._ What you don't seem to understand is that it always fails when tried (at least for the best interests of admitted have-nots like you). You laud government for setting policy that forces companies to offshore or go out of business, then blame the companies for making that choice, and you dismiss things you don't like the sound of as "weird conspiracies" without even looking into them because you don't like the sound of them... Yep, it's easy to see what kind of Kool-Aid you've been drinking. You're basically a caricature of everyone who gets brainwashed, and who has no life experience or whose life experience is tainted from having seen everything only through the beer goggles of Karl Marx. No understanding of the free market, no understanding of human nature, and oblivious of any solutions to problems that don't come from government. You make me glad I'm...not you.

    • Disc Jockey Disc Golf
      Disc Jockey Disc Golf 6 days ago

      Randall Slaughter lol, nah bro, I'm not going to look up weird conspiracies cuz China definitely had nukes way before the 90s. And I'm not sure why you think China is a problem. If Electronics had been manufactured in the US from early on then you and I would likely not be able to afford to communicate the way we are right now, because all of our computers and phones would be unaffordable, at least to someone like me. And like I was saying, it's not the fault of politicians or countries or anything like that for why these electronics cost as much as they do, its companies like Microsoft and Apple and all them paying shit wages overseas and selling them domestically for way more than they're worth. Since you want to get political, I would say we should at least in some form nationalize these businesses, which is quite a bit further left than you can likely understand.

    • Randall Slaughter
      Randall Slaughter 7 days ago

      @Disc Jockey Disc Golf Yes, Bill Clinton gave China nuclear missile technology in 1996 - look up "Chinagate". And as for your at-this-point remark, no, you can't start the story in the middle. It's Bill Clinton's fault that we're in this mess with China. He facilitated the building up of China into the problem they are now by allowing them to suck off of us like an economic parasite. It's hard to put all the blame on companies ([gasp] evil corporations!) for moving overseas when that's the only way that can compete. No, this is all a result of CLINTON DEMOCRAT POLICY.

      Seriously, you people on the left are so damn dumb...I doubt you could find your ass with both hands if you think that one-way open trade with a communist country, where we pay tariffs and they don't, is a good idea for "da woykaz". You personally are profoundly misinformed. I hope you cried on election night...you deserve it.

  • Trenton Coop

    Two reasons why China wins, one: because its people are willing to work for two dollars a day which is still the average pay for over 500 million of the Chinese people. 2: they dont care how much pollution they create or the harm it does to its people, a new study estimates in China 4,000 die every day due to pollution. China has already used up half of its 65,000 rivers and has polluted the remaining water so bad they're only estimated to have another 12 years of water left. China will collapse in the next 20 years guarenteed

    My mom use to work for a company that worked with white label "brands" and would have the products sold through Amazon in the US. She told me how stressful yet interesting it was because there are other countries competing for this market as well and other white label companies wanting in. She was a a global supply chain manager so she oversaw basically products going in and out of the country. It was really cool. But it is true though that sometimes the cultural differences do get in the way. That's why having a US based company help out with the design process is really key to having successful products sold here. Americans like brands, flashy boxes, a good logo, etc. All of that goes into how we buy things.

    As a side note, it was fun when she worked there because I got to try out prototype stuff and give my feedback on it since my Mom didn't really use consumer electronics like I did. So it was fun. Interesting video. The global economy is insane.

    ....I am sorry to contradict you: ...true Deng Xiaoping took power of the People's Republic of China and did what you enumerated here but, he did so after United States of America President Richard Nixon visited the People's Republic of China and open US doors for them to make business with US and allowed US businesses to start investing in that Socialist region. US manufacturing did so, then Deng Xiaoping changed the Communist/Socialist system in order to permit, after 1978, private investment on their lands. Here a piece of history to refresh you mind:

    " Nixon, the 37th United States president, succeeded Lyndon B. Johnson, who had launched the Great Society, a set of domestic programs financed and run by the federal government. In contrast, Nixon advocated a "New Federalism" domestic program model, one in which certain powers would devolve back to the states. The creation of the EPA, passage of the Endangered Species Act, and the integration of Southern public schools happened during his presidency, as did the end of military draft and the Apollo program, which successfully landed Americans on the Moon. Nixon's primary focus while in office was on foreign affairs. His foreign policy agenda, known as the Nixon Doctrine, called for indirect assistance to American allies in the Cold War, with the "Vietnamization" of the Vietnam War being the most notable example of this policy. Nixon ended American involvement in the Vietnam War, and his administration succeeded in achieving a negotiated settlement. Nixon became the first U.S. president to visit the People's Republic of China, taking advantage of the Sino-Soviet split and significantly altering the nature of the Cold War. Nixon also pursued a strategy of detente with the Soviet Union, resulting in the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and SALT I, the first two landmark arms control treaties of their kind. Beginning in 1973, Nixon was forced to devote increasing attention to the Watergate scandal that enveloped his administration. He resigned from office in the face of near-certain impeachment. He was succeeded by Vice President Gerald Ford, who had become vice president nine months earlier, following Spiro Agnew's resignation from office. While Nixon's premature departure from office tends to dominate contemporary assessments of his presidency - and Nixon's domestic and foreign policy accomplishments are largely overshadowed by the scandals that enveloped his administration - his legacy has undergone reevaluation in the more than 40 years since his resignation. Political historian and pollster Douglas Schoen argues that Nixon was the most important American figure in post-war U.S. politics, while constitutional law professor Cass Sunstein noted in 2017, "If you are listing the five most consequential Presidents in American history, you could make a good argument that Nixon belongs on the list."[1] "

    ...as readers and onlookers could notice, it was President Richard Nixon who open the doors to Socialist China to be what it is now, not Deng Xiaoping of China ...and here is where you are omitting the truth; therefore I conclude that your presentation is either false or misleading or does not honor the truth. It was United States of America "who" sold itself to the one now destroying the United States of America due to EXTREME CAPITALISM. Hope I made it clear. Watergate Scandal changed history for ever that to bring it back for the world to be freed from the new China Empire, either a Worldwide War must start being it nuclear or not or Extreme Capitalism must be cut its head off. Who would put the cascabel to the cat? President Donald J. Trump is trying to do that but, with wrong policies using wrong methods; at least trying.

(Put competitors out of business or take up all manufacturing contracts due to lowest cost.). 2nd generation which is where we are at now, focus on quality and supply chain/ self manufacture all as all parts are now made there.

      you mean like the giant chinese factories that employ tens of thousands and that have grown to the size of a small cities, with people living on the premises in giant commie-style apartment buildings owned by the company? born in some random rice village in the middle of nowhere? no problem, the one of the factories will take you.. all you have to do is leave your entire life behind and move two thousand miles away to their location and live there all year long. yay, you will now earn three dollars per hour assembling cheap coffeemakers and irons that will be sold at north american dollar stores.. you know, the type of shit that will break and completely fall apart within days because it was made using dirt cheap chinese plastic, dirt cheap chinese iron, and dirt cheap chinese electrical components. but that's good, because it means that mr. ka ching over at the procurement department is going to get a little bonus at the end of the week for helping the company lower their production costs by sourcing the shittiest raw materials and components that he could find. don't worry though, mr. ka ching is slightly higher up the food chain. your job will be much simpler... simple enough that most rice farmers that join the company are able to work on their own after only two or three hours of training. your task will be to use a power screwdriver to tighten four little screws on each coffeemaker... twelve hours per day, six days per week, with a quota of over four thousand units per day. that's about 16000 screws, or about two and a half seconds for each screw.

      how gratifying and fulfilling! what a nice repetitive soul-crushing wage slave position! but wait, they even have specific dates to allow the workers to get married with one another! and your new factory wife will be able to give birth at the local hospital. yes, the company has their own hospital! and their own supermarket and restaurants! and don't even worry about your kid! the company has their own daycare facilities and schools that will not only take care of your kid while you are busy assembling coffeemakers, but they will also provide them with all of the education that they will need in order to achieve great things in life.. firemen and astronauts? pffft, nah! your child will learn that he too can become a real life hero by following mommy and daddy's footsteps and serving his country by assembling coffeemakers for the chinese communist party in order to contribute to the economic growth of the motherland!
      yay, what an amazing life! forget the two hour lunch break.. that's nothing. the eight hour sleep break is much better! and then you even have another two hours left to relax and spend some time with your factory wife and factory kid! that's a full twelve hours of break! isn't it great to literally live at work? superior chinese lifestyle, with your employer controlling every single aspect of your life! ultimate chinese freedom, brought to you by the chinese communist party!

    Embrace capitalism, and things get better, ignore environmental stewardship and worker safety laws and production gets more profitable. China is doing both.

      @AntonioR Software You dont get it....The need for money makes you a slave to it...Its not hard to understand. They created a system so the slaves cant see they are slaves.. A slave who thinks he is free will not revolt. try looking up "Modern money mechanics" And central banking system... Maybe you will open your eyes to the bigger picture.

    Shenzhen had the open market idea and had the advantage of being so close to one of the wealthiest cities in the world, Hongkong. I really don’t think Shenzhen would be where it is today without Hongkong/Macau

    This video is embarrassing western propaganda. In reality, china’s success is thanks to our unique model way of implementation state ownership. Farms? The Party is only today gingerly expirementing with truly private farms. China’s state sector has grown, and has gone global.

    People are just repeating the same cycles... During ancient imperial China the people use to keep their trade craft secret to protect their monopoly and the Chinese economy began to stagnate. It was the same in the west until the west shot ahead when they began to industrialize and stole ideas from each other before patent and copyright laws were invented. Now the west are keeping things protected with patent, copyright and trade secrets laws and the western markets are beginning to stagnate. The newly risen China is rather lawless in terms of copyright laws and some are freely exchanging ideas, that's why they're now innovating faster than the west even though they are still playing catchup in many areas.

    The lesson is, protectionism is the enemy of innovation. crowd sourcing, the marketplace of ideas and sharing resources are the key to speeding up technogical advancements.

    • solaroid55

      You need patent laws because otherwise nobody will invest in R&D and no progress would be made. China is innovating in a few key areas heavily subsidized by the government, otherwise it is all copying.
      Patenting does not mean something is kept secret, it means that if you want to use it in a commercial product you need to pay a fee to the inventor.
      It is true the west is stagnating heavily, but you are barking under the wrong tree here.

    Sure, China wins .
    But China has benefitted immensely due to Globalisation created by West.
    While west Corporations became richer, products got cheaper , but middle class has vanished in USA and west rural areas.
