This attitude of belittling and underestimating the opposition, complacency, and not facing facts is one of the reasons we in the West are in the current financial position we are in because South East Asian companys can produce as good or better products in purpose built high tech factorys using modern manufacturing techniques better and cheaper than we in the West can, and the only response that western companys seem to have to the competition is to move their manufacturing facilitys to Asia.
