Following some difficult times for Chinese export quality

“It is now clear that part of the China price resulted from the shift of production from jurisdictions with strong regulation and high compliance costs, to those with light regulation and low compliance costs.”

Arthur Kroeber from his article, Lessons for China Inc., in the August 20, 2007, hard copy of the China Economic Quarterly (CEQ) (h/t China Law Blog)
