Yeah, they said that about the French, too, when they
released a car called the Logan.  It's a brand-new
five-passenger automobile, favorably reviewed by all
the automotive press, that sells for about 5000 Euros
new.  It has Detroit and other world carmakers running
scared, because they can't even come *close* to offer-
ing a car with similar features at a similar price.
They can't get close to the Logan's price right now, 
try as they might.

No magic involved -- just buy a defunct manufacturing
facility in Romania and then engineer from the ground
up a new car that costs the least amount possible to
manufacture while providing a basic level of reliable
transportation, safety, and comfort.  Focus on the low
end of the automotive market instead of the high end.

China may *well* subsidize its workers to undercut the
prices of other countries, but that's not the only way
that products can be offered at a lower price than a
competitor's.  Occasionally, the use of basic intelli-
gence can go a lot further than protectionism and
subsidies.
