We got to watch whether the BRITISH aerospace

.....is seriously building that SUB ORBITAL hypersonic passenger craft!

This is a WATCHER. That Hypersonic craft which can partial use oxygen in the air for it's THRUST power, will cut cost dramatically for SUB ORBITAL travel! Those automatic air force-army Robot drones, buggies will create lower cost asteroid or moon mining, process and manufacturing possible!

It's so exciting!

cheerios!

The high price of crude oil means drastic changes in manufacturing!

Difference in comparative advantage in different regions means a lot of changes forthcoming!

North America - has high labour cost, would need to concentrate on high "value adding" industries!
While IndoChina is beginning to dominate the lower end assembly business, China's internal provinces is handling low cost assembly of "logistic neutral assembly products", while secondary coastal centres will do "medium value adding components".

New car industry development means "rapid restructuring" of the industry!

There could be less CBU shipments of car, especially over long distances - cost could be up to US$2,000 per unit if delivered from Japan to Europe! Pretty crazy, when it's probably much cheaper to ship components or parts to high productivity assembly hubs in Europe or USA or Asean hubs!.

cheerios!

Technological product war - Aerospace engines!

This would seem to be a battle between the globe's two main rivals in Turbofan Jet Engines!

Roll Royce and Pratt & Whitney!
The main engine of the Roll Royce is the famous TRENT engines, the engine that runs most of the Airbus Passenger Aircraft Vs. the PW series and GE engines!

A multi billion Rmb tuscle between the two of the world's foremost engine makers!

It's a watcher!

cheerios!

....and the British, experts in diplomacy

......just decide to blame it on some non descript problem!

It's a difficult world we live in!
Take care!
