Thats why they build the big boats and labour costs being cheaper in the mentioned countries.
Remember also that Spain was in the 80īs a below par country regarding quality in general.
I might add in Turkey they copy everything they can get their hands on and Skaters are truly above their Turkish splashes.
I donīt have a hard time believing that when you take a fisherman to build boats or cars the result canīt be as good as a steelworkers/ boatbuilders at least not until the fisherman has become one but thatīs some bean counters do have a hard time believing and the failures are proofs in my book.
Lived over there enough to now the ropes....Sounds like you have one good data point on Americans. I do a substantial amount of international traveling and the global language is English. When the Korean and the Chinese and the Russians get together they speak English. Not because American's are ignorant - we are not forced to learn another.
Regarding Asians and Russians well with Asians I speak English or Finnish with them Iīm not forced to any other either But try any (North) African country and you have a hard time getting by If you canīt french..same goes for Canada too in some places...
In Europe you might also get in trouble with just English. Especially those places were English speaking arenīt well looked on.
Russians start mostly with German, and that might be strange.
On the other hand Russians when Germans invaded took mostly them with open arms as they were seen as liberators of Communism and a ticket to free enterprising and ownership.
Anyways this isnt debate about any of the above. Hope all is well in Finland. I just got exchanged Friday night to a half Finnish babe!
Hyvää joulua ja onnellista uutta vuotta!
Thnx. Happy Holidays for all of you too.
