    I am going to discuss "The Quality of Products" made in everywhere with you.

    I personally like the products that are made in Japan the most. Not only am I appreciating their packaging ways, but I love their surface touching of the products. A lot of Japanese products appear to be expensive, but theirs have secure warranty. I think the smoothness of Japan-made products have the best feeling in my opinion. The next great products to this is the things made in Taiwan. Taiwan has made many great hardware of computers, and the quality--woohoohoo--number one. Then it's China-made, and then USA. I don't really think the products made in USA are that great, they are just durable, that's all. So let me hear your opinion.

    On average, I would say that quality follows Swiss, Austrian, Swedish, German, Japanese, US, Canadian, Dutch, Norwegian, Finnish, Korean in about that order.

    I would disagree with you strongly that Chinese or Taiwanese products have on average, good quality. I travel quite a lot through all these countires, plus our company buys $billions of raw materials and capital goods from around the world, and I think I have a rather good basis for judging.

    Some Chinese or Taiwanese products are of very high quality. Many computer related components fit this description. On the other hand a Chinese or Taiwanese watch is not going to be of high quality. Optics are best from Japan, the US and Germany. The Germans can make some very high quality products and are responsible for a great number of technologies the Japanese and others have just refined and or transformed.

    I just ordered a Chinese telescope mount, not because it was the best, but because it was inexpensive and of good enough quality that I have a base that I can refine and make better.

    The Chinese and Taiwanese actually make some good steel based products. They are pretty good at that. The US and Japan can make better machined products but not anywhere near the same price.

    China and Taiwan win for making OK products at a very good price. This of course just reflects the price of labor to a large degree.

    Let's not forget the South Koreans, they make some very high quality stuff as well. Better then China or Taiwan. Samsung comes to mind.

    Japan use to be more like China in terms of labor costs, now they are getting more like the US. Prices keep rising to match the labor costs. It's one of the reasons the US doesn't produce mass produced products anymore. The US does however mass produce one product that it ships overseas, just ask Iraqi what that product is.

    No, the Night Market is like there are streets that provide various food to people on the street, only at Night.

    You should visit Boston, I think you might like it. Lot of very smart and wealthy people walking around. NYC has those to, but Boston is better IMO.

    Then of course we have Vegas, I love Vegas.
