Think Global, Buy Local Dept.

Think Global, Buy Local Dept.: There's little doubt that much high-tech activity is moving west--way west, to China and India. China is expected to be
on a par with the rest of the high-tech world in process technology, because it can now buy the same American and Japanese semiconductor-manufacturing
gear as anyone else. I laugh to myself when I recall the fuss made just a few years ago about certain CPUs and chips going to China and Russia,
because they could be used as guidance controls for missiles. Now these countries can just build the chips from scratch. Welcome to the world of
globalization.
