Understood. If both China and the US croak, Sp is in a world of hurt. Sp has been remarkably successful partnering with both. Electronics manufacturing and excellent educational facilities are but two of the brain power resources they have to trade, as well as the aforementioned assets. The shipping gets the ins and outs covered neatly. If only one of the two big partners catches a crab, Sp will do fine. If it weren't so bloody expensive to live there and it weren't so bloody hot all year long, I'd probably still be there.
