Germany has a large trade surplus, mainly with the European Union member countries, but also even with China. 16 The factor explaining the strength of manufacturing employment in these global economic powers can hardly be lower wages. S. 17 Japan and Korea are not low-cost countries either. Chapter 5 will consider what we might learn from the ways in which other highwage economies have retained strong manufacturing sectors in the face of intense global competition from developing economies. But with respect to evaluating the fate of manufacturing in advanced economies, the point here is that these foreign examples challenge conventional views of decline as What Happened to Manufacturing?
