Economic Management II ....

Just come back from having my foot X-rayed (middle-aged man does too much running). The radiographer had been there for 35 years, and we talked about the changes in equipment over that time as I admired the shiny new machine.

"Are any still made in Britain ? Or are they all from Germany and Japan ?" I asked. Alas, I was fifteen or twenty years out of date. "They're all made in India or China now. This is a General Electric machine but it's made in China. Hardly any of our equipment is British. Bit depressing, really".
