Chinese have very little internal innovation of their own. Like the former USSR, 95% of what they have is stolen, copycatted and cloned from the West via corporate espionage, cyberhacking and/or outrright plaigairsm. You can’t even proprietary, exclusive manufacturers not to steal and clone your vanguard designs ASAP as Apple found out. Beside, the “high quality” is still largely in Taiwan not the Chinese mainland. Taiwan is to China what the UK is to the EU.
The world’s innovation is still majorly done in the USA where all the brains and talent are… just the “dumb” manufacturing is offshored. Sure, there’s some up and comer global Chinese namebrands that we’re tentatively familiar with, but they still got their start expropriating others ideas and/or buying out Western companies.
Most consumers are dumb idiots (Black Friday fights anyone?) that conflate materialism with happiness at both ends of the socio-economic specturm. I’m not too concerned ’bout them because they’re not leading us into the post-capitalist future. What will those silly people do when autofabrication machines cater to their every whim and desire for ready made junx?
