China, the country that has gone through one of the fastest economic transformations the world has ever seen.
You see, for the last 30 years, China's economy has grown significantly. Due to industrialization. China has achieved similar economic growth which previously took decades to achieve for the western world. The country has managed to become the world's factory and the 2nd biggest economy. But in recent times things have been changing, and not in a good way.

In the last few years, the global supply chain has been hit hard by not only the recent pandemic but also by the trade wars between the US and China. With the relatively extreme ways that China has been dealing with these issues, many countries have realized the economic risks in relying on China as time goes on. As such, numerous foreign companies have been pulling out of China, going instead to other developing countries such as Vietnam, India and Thailand. On January 12, Canon, another large company, announced that they will be shutting down their factory in Zhuhai, China. This was apparently caused by heavy operational difficulties due to the prolonged outbreaks of COVID-19, which undoubtedly raised concerns from many Chinese citizens. As one of the earliest Companies to have entered the Chinese manufacturing market, the Zhuhai branch has been in operation since 1990, having lasted 32 years. Over the years, the factory manufactures all sorts of products for Canon, from lenses to different electronics like printers, cameras and camcorders. It is worth mentioning that in 2013, this factory was recently upgraded with an investment of $1.5 billion yuan, increasing its production capacity by twofold. At the time, it was one of Canon’s largest overseas factories, employing over 10,000 employees and able to produce up to 20 million cameras a year.

On 1 December, Xinhua reported that the Ministry of Health revised the number of victims to more than 290,000 with 51,900 hospitalized; authorities acknowledged receiving reports of 11 suspected deaths from melamine contaminated powdered milk from provinces, but officially confirmed three deaths.[31]

中國不敢面對的真相,核心零件100%依賴進口,21萬從業人員,連0.3毫米的配件都搞不定,最賺錢的部分,全讓別人掙了去。


读懂研报

中國不敢公開的真相,核心零件100%依賴進口,21萬從業人員,連0.3毫米的配件都搞不定,最賺錢的部分,全讓別人掙了去。在普通人眼中並不起眼的圓珠筆,其實涉及到這個國家的製造業水平。它的生產涉及機械設計製造能力,特殊鋼材則取決於國家鋼鐵產業的科技水平。
中國不僅是圓珠筆筆頭造不好,連墨水都得進口。如果用自己生產的材料,生產的圓珠筆不是漏墨就是掉珠,或者寫著寫著就把筆頭給磨壞了。一年下來就需要花費2億美元進口筆頭和墨水的原材料。
以上是技術的問題,第二個就是經濟的問題了。圓珠筆價格太低,導致利潤太少。就算是壟斷了圓珠筆所有的鋼珠,利潤也就3000萬元左右,應用的特種鋼總額是一個億。但是要研發就要找人才,開工廠,買設備,花錢做研發。即便研發出來,也要賣的比外面人的還便宜才能賣的出去。這樣一算下來,花銷太大,而收益太小,需要很多年才能回本,甚至得虧本去打價格戰。中國的企業多聰明啊?早就算出這個市場太小,不願意投資。所以有人才說,不是技術的問題,而是市場的問題,錢的問題。

China's Municipalities Face $8 Trillion Debt Crisis

Ever since Evergrande started have trouble last summer the Chinese real estate market is in free-fall. This has obviously effected millions of jobs directly in the construction industry, but the second-order effects could be much greater. About one third of revenue for local governments China come from land sales and they also have more than $8 trillion of hidden debt. The real estate crisis is causing land sales to plummet, which could push come cities into bankruptcy.

There is a big issue with the food supply in China. In fact, China is hoarding 69% of corn reserves, 60% of rice 51% of the world's wheat supply. This happens when most of your groundwater is too polluted to use, and you've destroyed a good portion of your arable land.

South Korea really know how to use soft power! The entertainment industry! Come on, those boy band or girl band is so outdated! UK used to be manufacturer of this kind of bands! Enter South Korea! They recycle this concept for decades now! And still, plenty of Gen Z screaming and shouting over it!
Honestly i hate watching korean movies and series! I mean, the same plain looking actors really a big no to me! However, this doesn't stop South Korea from production many great films of late!
I really try to watch China ones! Haix! Story lines just too stony! Same level as TVB!

花費千億,抄襲勞斯萊斯,靠簡單的拼裝糊弄人,紅旗就是工業垃圾,發動機造出來,連中國汽車製造商也不敢用。

读懂研报

花費千億,抄襲勞斯萊斯,靠簡單的拼裝糊弄人,紅旗就是工業垃圾,發動機造出來,連中國汽車製造商也不敢用。
從目前的情況來看,這麼多的錢,研究了個外形,實質上就是在抄襲外國車輛品牌而已!當年紅旗H7上市的時候,紅旗官網里的圖片竟然是右舵的,中國是靠右行車的交通規則,這張圖,根本就是隨便找來的。這個烏龍實在是丟人。

這還不只是唯一一次的抄襲,2005年的上海汽車展,直接抄襲了勞斯萊斯,只要眼不瞎,都能看得出。就這樣一路抄抄抄,到了2014年的時候,紅旗在北京車展上推出了紅旗L5,又是抄了勞斯萊斯的。雙五幅的輪轂,車門粗大的裝飾條,門把手的位置,白色的裝飾塊等等元素,跟勞斯萊斯完全一致,只要把車頭蓋住,完全看不出區別。

而L5的售價是五百萬,看來只有售價學到了進口車的精髓!這種價格是怎麼好意思標出來的, 難道是把勞斯萊斯買回來改造一下變成紅旗的車標就上架了?這個可能性看來還不低。

這麼多的錢,紅旗真的全部拿來研發汽車發動機了嗎?前前後後投資進去的錢已經超過了上千億,就造出了這種貨色。不說要達到世界頂級的水準,起碼也要把差距拉回來一點,現在看是越來越遠。

生物技術落後,被日本踩在腳下,糧食種子全要進口,14億人靠西方國家吃飯?每年花費大量美元進口玉米小麥。

读懂研报

生物技術落後,被日本踩在腳下,糧食種子要進口,14億人靠西方國家吃飯?每年花費大量美元進口玉米小麥。進口種子占同類品種市場的比例非常高,不單是糧食種子,蔬菜種子的比例就更大了,幾乎是壟斷的程度。比如中國的白蘿蔔種子是韓國提供的,辣椒種子是以色列提供的,西藍花種子是日本提供的。菠菜種子來源較複雜,但進口比例高達95%,要知道,中國的菠菜種植面積佔了世界將近八成,產量是91.56%,這麼大的市場,都是別人的種子。
就連傳統種植區域也被進口種子侵入。中國的馬鈴薯之鄉是克山縣,但是美國馬鈴薯已經種植了3萬畝,佔了全縣種植面積的一半。中國蔬菜之鄉是山東壽光,進口的種子佔了三成的份額。中國主產區尚且如此,其他的地方進口更多,國產種子真是兵敗如山倒,進口依賴度高了,人家就有了定價權,中國祇能捏著鼻子認。韓國白蘿蔔種子,是國產種子的二十倍。日本進口的西藍花種子,從2015年的3500元一袋,2016年已經漲到了6500元,到今年 已經到了2萬元。俄羅斯也對葵花籽和油菜籽提高了關稅,以前6.5%提升到30%,
