China Isn't A 'Cheap Labor' Country Anymore
Increases in labor cost now exceed the rate of economic growth in China. It looks like that's a long term trend. As China becomes richer, its demand for goods will increase and wages will increase. Manufacturing now handled in China will shift to places like Bangladesh (which is now a textile economy), making Bangladesh richer in turn.
