If it isn’t China, then it’s the US, etc., etc.

With everything so interconnected this day and age, it doesn’t seem terribly useful to focus on any one source of risk. Perhaps companies should focus on adopting ‘best practices’ all around.

Regarding China’s technological advances over the past 20 years. Just what would China look like today, if nearly every major company in the world, had not moved manufacturing to China? Would China’s military, space, tech industries be at the same level they are today? A future is coming fast, where foreign industries operating in China will try to get out, and how will the Chinese government react? I do not see a happy exit for companies trying to get out. We will see more and more foreign executives working in China, arrested, put in a Chinese prison, all to send the message: “Don’t try to leave!”

@danro, your question is stupid, “what if” can be applied to any country and occurrence, what if the Germans won WW2.
As for your hypothesis, don’t worry China will be ok.
