Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You've played an important - perhaps vital - role in the start of millennial transformation (unusually hyperbolic for me, but I believe it).

I don't think, though, that I would depreciate China's role and importance. I've been involved in several house-building and remodeling projects over the last decade. Chinese-made tools, plus plumbing and electrical parts, were just beginning to saturate our markets when I started, and the quality was poor to useless. I've had to replace various light systems, switches, faucets, etc.; and I've installed new, but similar, devices in more recent projects. The improvement in essentially identical items is marked with subtle improvements in design as well. I predict that you'll see the same progress in turbines.

Meantime, go Europe!
