At least US$1 billion from the sale to Key Safety Systems, a 51% Chinese-owned company based in subu ...

How much can it really cost to research and build one's own airbag safety system, for that matter ANYthing else?

If you buy takata, you can't be getting its clientele - right now it doesn't have any. In fact its product has negative reputation.  So exactly what did you get for that billion blown?

If you study japanese innovation, it's about cost accounting first.

Reckless use of one's wallet can bankrupt even the luckiest guy what more the hardest working.

And I say it once again:

I wish China would stay out of this prearranged US/Japan deal...

Any US/Jap deal;   stay away from

The past fifty years of industrial history seems to have revolved around one theme - optimizing device functionality/size ratio.

And packing more processing power into decreasing size seems to reflect another theme - urbanization.

The more people go into cities, the more there is diversification of activities.

But since space cannot expand as much even if upwards, therefore to keep things going, devices they use need to get smaller while still packing at least the same functions, often more.  

This tendency towards miniaturization spills over even to other areas like presentation of thoughts, such in making slides presentations, and also in other plug-and-use areas like designing software modules and common-train car modeling.

Thus, compartmentalization, then compactification, with both chasing the objective of value-adding which translates into (a) higher corporate margins, ergo profits, followed by (b) higher-echelon market share, from (c) premium branding.

On those scores, precision motor control is important, underlying which is precision tooling of micro-motors, for that matter everything.

I am bringing this up here because of another trend - the looming 5G revolution. China will go commercial by 2020 on 5G. She already has 5G base stations in Guangdong and Nanjing.  

And 5G can change the way the world operates all activities, not the least industrial M2M (machine to machine) automation, autonomous transport, public safety, smart homes and cities, and augmented reality. The so-called IoT (internet of things) ecosphere.

Which can avalanche demand for a new world of machine-made small things. Like motorized self-orienting 5G antennas.
