The example shown for the value of design vs manufacture, a bloody iPhone :lol:

You don't make phone calls?

The trick he is missing is that whilst we need the high value stuff, not everyone can be an inventor or advertiser. We need unskilled work for our unskilled labour. The basic point he is making, that manufacturing alone does not make an economy is correct, and a point that appears to fly over the head of many on this forum.

The "fact" some people are missing is that the so called knowledge economy is being exported wholesale too <_<

It was wine drinking that powered the industrial revolution. The Chinese stuck with tea drinking and missed out. Think about it!

Read the article - you'll have to point out the bit where they said they were recruiting Chinese medical researchers, I appear to have missed it. You didn't say they invented iPhones, but you appeared to state they are matching us in R&D or that our R&D is being exported.

I await an example of the amazing Chinese R&D

I shall sleep easier knowing that Britain leads the world in biscuits.

Meanwhile India are launching rockets and building Thorium reactors.

Our future is in a piece of fattening shit called the Kitkat!

UK sells float glass. Ground breaking stuff.

Secret Roswell technology for sure.

What really depressed me is that Pilkingtons is now owned by a Japanese company

'We are good at marketing to ourselves rather than others'..... that's because no one is stupid enough to believe the crap we are marketed

One of the problems with this program is that its pretty difficult to "glam-up" any knowledge based work for TV. The reality is sitting in an office surrounded by technical documents staring at computer screens. Wouldn't appeal to the X-Factor generation.
