The answer? Educated people and wages.
See Gruber’s article here. I think that discussion becomes very interesting as wages rise in China. As Gruber points out the jobs these folks are doing might be defined as ‘menial’ but the jobs take skill. So the Chinese market offers the both skilled labor and until recently, inexpensive labor.
As China’s economy changes and wages become higher low cost assembly will (and is moving) move to other countries. Do other countries offer the same combination that China does or is the ‘savings’ that a company takes partially eaten by training of employees?

The Perfect Martini
Pic is from last Sunday morning (October 25, 2015).
Been traveling quite a bit the last few weeks and have not made much progress on the closet. I did manage to get a couple of cabinets built to assess the sizing of them within the room.
Below is a shot of the closet off the kitchen. Going to build some shelving and the like here starting next week.
The idea is to make this into storage for the kitchen appliances and food as well as a ‘mud room’’ with an area to sit down, hang coats and store shoes.
Shot of the front of the house after I pulled out all of the old bushes. Now to pull out the old bed marker, reform the beds and lay down brick.
Pretty cool stuff in here.
Went for a run last night right after a big rain. It was pretty humid out and when I got to the end of the driveway I looked left and saw this.
I did go into the light.
The first picture is one that was created with a filter using Instagram. The second image is the original taken with an iPhone 6.
We hung some curtains in the Kitchen and the results can be seen below.
