The Real Revolution

Everything is made in China at the moment. It is often said that this only because they are able to make stuff extremely cheaply due to low labour costs. However, China has always had low labour costs. It is just that nowadays because the developed world is able to import stuff far cheaper because the cost of transport is lower in real terms than ever before. This is where the Real Revolution has occurred.
Call centres in India likewise. This is only possible due to improved communications.
Just my 2.2 cents worth.

    A good point. Cheap labour has been in places like India and China since time immemorial probably, but access to that labour has increased markedly in recent years.
