It is an international phenomenon... only the strong (or efficient) survive, unless bolstered by govt (read cronyism) over time.
And to think that the Taiwanese want to declare independence, and they truly believe that they have the ability to run their own country !!!
As an overview and analysis of the commentary in this thread, I am going to have to say that the Taiwanese are currently only suitable to be a "colony" of some advanced country .......... they certainly don't have the smarts to go it alone in the world community.
