1974, Oh I agree, what I am saying is that! They are building this that we invent or other countries invent for cheaper then we can build them. But they still are doing the copying of some products like they did with the Ford F150 and the Chevy http://www.carscoops.com/2012/02/china-jac-does-it-again-with-ford-f-150.html
And customs are still getting a lot of products that are copies of watches, purses and jewelry. They have stolen military specs and have built ships and planes that sure look very close to our military.
In a collapse they will be in trouble since they are attached by the hips which is a problem for them is we go down and Europe too. 90% is building products like iPhones, parts, and all the toys and more from all the companies from here and Europe.
