    China’s private airlines created competition, and then succumbed to it? 🙂

    I am curious as to how Chinese the hexie hao high-speed trains actually are. An ex-SOE (steelmaking) manager I talked to last year said that although they used some foreign hi-tech, the Chinese could now make and export high-speed trains independently. But a Chinese engineer I met working for Hitachi in Japan said that vital systems–air pressure regulation, signalling among others–still had to be foreign-made. Does anybody know if China can make and export bullet-type trains independently?

    yeah – I guess that about sums it up. Apparently, no one studied the histroy of the US airline market before designing the Chinese one.

    Everything I have read, and seen, points to the fact that while they are able to design and assemble, there are still key systems that they cannot do.

    If you look at auto, airplane, construction equipment, it is the same.
