So if "they" don't want to use China's superior manufacturing abilities, they don't have to use th ...

Let's take a look at some of those "superior manufacturing abilities", shall we?

Leaded paint
Melamine in milk powder
Date Rape drugs in toy beads
Sub-par Gyproc
Items that break/stop working after as little as 2 days
Counterfeit products
Fake food items
Fake medical products

The list goes on and on ...

Only capitalists worry about their own well-being? Everyone, even Chinese people worry about their well-being. If you don't believe that, you are either very naive, or very stupid, or possibly both. I'm willing to bet on the latter.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

According to him, here’s how China stole “superior” US production technology:
1. Chinese agents  ...

Liu Zhijun started a "Market Access for Technology Transfer Policy" at the start of China's foray into high-speed train production. He told Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Bombardier Inc., and Siemens AG, that in order for them to participate in the development of the Chinese high-speed train, and have market access in China, any and all technology advancements must be handed over to China. Any and all patents which were developed were not allowed to be held by those respective companies, but must be handed over to the Chinese government. The technology transfers also included technology that was already in place on similar or existing rail products which those companies produced. In other words, technology already in use on Bombardier's rail cars used in Vancouver's Skytrain, which could cross over into China's high-speed rail cars had to be handed over to China ... including the patents on those products. This was blatant, up-front theft of Intellectual Property Rights on China's part.

Let's not forget that when China had the Wenzhou accident, they were quick to lay the blame on a Bombardier designed piece of equipment. They very quickly shut their holes when it was found to be a Chinese designed and manufactured part.  LOL

Typical Chinese trial and error with no safeguards. If they succeed; then large profits to be made. If it fails; then loss of life and loss of large sums of money.

Leaded paint

Such a short list you have for China. The US is a far more dangerous place for prescription drugs and food.
You western propagandist are obsessed with the years old melamine in milk powder incident.

In the last month 24 food products were recalled in the US.

35 prescription drugs that were once approved for use by humans have been recalled in the US.

1. Accutane (Isotretinoin)
Cause for recall:
increased risk of birth defects, miscarriages, and premature births when used by pregnant women; inflammatory bowel disease; suicidal tendencies

2. Baycol (Cerivastatin)
Cause for recall:
rhabdomyolysis (breakdown of muscle fibers that results in myoglobin being released into the bloodstream) which led to kidney failure; 52 deaths (31 in the US) worldwide; 385 nonfatal cases with most requiring hospitalization; 12 of the deaths were related to taking this drug in combination with gemfibrozil (Lopid)

3. Bextra (Valdecoxib)
Cause for recall:
serious cardiovascular adverse events (like death, MI, stroke); increased risk of serious skin reactions (like toxic epidermal necrolysis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, erythema multiforme); gastrointestinal bleeding

4. Cylert (Pemoline)
Cause for recall:
liver toxicity
The FDA added a box warning to Cylert in 1999, alerting doctors and patients to the potential of liver damage.

5. Darvon & Darvocet (Propoxyphene)
Cause for recall:
serious toxicity to the heart; between 1981 and 1999 there were over 2,110 deaths reported

6. DBI (Phenformin)
Cause for recall:
lactic acidosis (low pH in body tissues and blood and a buildup of lactate) in patients with diabetes

7. DES (Diethylstibestrol)
Cause for recall:
clear cell adenocarcinoma (cancer of the cervix and vagina), birth defects, and other developmental abnormalities in children born to women who took the drug while pregnant; increased risk of breast cancer, higher risk of death from breast cancer; risk of cancer in children of mothers taking the drug including raised risk of breast cancer after age 40; increased risk of fertility and pregnancy complications, early menopause, testicular abnormalities; potential risks for third generation children (the grandchildren of women who took the drug) but they are unclear as studies are just beginning

Studies in the 1950s showed the drug was not effective at preventing miscarriages, premature labor, or other pregnancy complications.

8. Duract (Bromfenac)
Cause for recall:
4 deaths; 8 patients requiring liver transplants; 12 patients with severe liver damage
Duract was labeled for maximum use of 10 days but patients often received/took more than 10 days worth of pills; all cases of death and liver damage involved patients taking pills for longer than 10 days.

9. Ergamisol (Levamisole)
Cause for recall:
neutropenia (a type of low white blood cell count), agranulocytosis (a type of low white blood cell count), and thrombotic vasculopathy (blood clots in blood vessels) which results in retiform purpura (a purple discoloration of the skin that can sometimes require reconstructive surgery)
Levamisole is still used to treat animals with worm infestations in the US. It is also being found in street cocaine as an adulterant to increase euphoric qualities.

10. Hismanal (Astemizole)
Cause for recall:
slowed potassium channels in the heart that could cause torsade de pointes (TdP; a heart condition marked by a rotation of the heart's electrical axis) or long QT syndrome (LQTS; prolonged QT intervals)

11. Lotronex (Alosetron)
Cause for recall:
49 cases of ischemic colitis (inflammation and injury of the large intestine); 21 cases of severe constipation (10 requiring surgery); 5 deaths; mesenteric ischemia (inflammation and injury of the small intestine)

12. Meridia (Sibutramine)
Cause for recall:
increased cardiovascular and stroke risk

13. Merital & Alival (Nomifensine)
Cause for recall:
haemolytic anemia; some deaths due to immunohemolytic anemia

14. Micturin (Terodiline)
Cause for recall:
QT prolongation and potential for cardiotoxicity

15. Mylotarg (Gemtuzumab Ozogamicin)
Cause for recall:
increased risk of death and veno-occlusive disease (obstruction of veins)

16. Omniflox (Temafloxacin)
Cause for recall:
3 deaths; severe low blood sugar; hemolytic anemia and other blood cell abnormalities; kidney disfunction (half of the cases required renal dialysis); allergic reactions including some causing life-threatening respiratory distress

17. Palladone (Hydromorphone hydrochloride, extended-release)
Cause for recall:
high levels of palladone could slow or stop breathing, or cause coma or death; combining the drug with alcohol use could lead to rapid release of hydromorphone, in turn leading to potentially fatally high levels of drugs in the system

18. Permax (Pergolide)
Cause for recall:
valve regurgitation (a condition that causes the valves to not close tightly, which allows blood to flow backward over the valve) in the mitral, tricuspid, and aortic heart valves, which can result in shortness of breath, fatigue, and heart palpitations

19. Pondimin (Fenfluramine)
Cause for recall:
30% of patients prescribed the drug had abnormal echocardiograms; 33 cases of rare valvular disease in women; 66 additional reports of heart valve disease
Pondimin is better known as "Fen-Phen" when prescribed with Phentermine.

20. Posicor (Mibefradil)
Cause for recall:
fatal interactions with at least 25 other drugs (ex: common antibiotics, antihistamines, and cancer drugs) including astemizole, cisapride, terfenadine, lovastatin, and simvastatin

21. Propulsid (Cisapride)
Cause for recall:

26. Raxar (Grepafloxacin)
Cause for recall:
cardiac repolarization; QT interval prolongation; ventricular arrhythmia (torsade de pointes)

27. Redux (Dexfenfluramine)
Cause for recall:
30% of patients prescribed the drug had abnormal echocardiograms; 33 cases of rare valvular disease in women; 66 additional reports of heart valve disease

28. Rezulin (Troglitazone)

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
