Hello Willy, Yes, "iron" is an hyperbola... (and was an hyperbola ;-) I know the bullets the Mexicans get are made of lead... :-| So, the "iron curtain" consists of the "lead curtain" and the "green curtain"... at least... A typical example of multi-level defence system... But. The main idea was the problem is not in the quality... as it seems if we look at the assertion of Mr. Pinto... It is just a mere assertion... like all other propagandistic ones. Just a couple of interconnected topics I would like to hear opinnions about: 1. There is no such a thing as free market in the USA (labour is an article of trade... ashmen's or programmer's it has no difference) 2. There is the "MMM-syndrome" problem - when investments make a pseudo-profit that leads to new cycle of investments (the case of IT ;-) 3. There is the "brain leak" problem as a specific type of investments 4. There is internet(opportunity of remoting job)... for large segment of automation it would lead to... changes. I mean an ashman can not both live in Mexica and work in the USA, but programmer can do it easily... e.g., he can live in Pekin and work for Siemens... So, maybe, as well as light industry, programming(and IT) have to move to China. Have a nice day. Vladimir
