Sure, the Chinese plant was poorly tooled, but AMC had a few third-rate operations of its own. The Chinese assembly line seemed crazy; it looked as though the workers put it up one day, with little thought, and then went to work making cars the next. But there was a certain charm to that, like an old-fashioned cottage industry. AMC could find plenty of conveyor experts to help fix the assembly line. The paint system looked like the worst in the world, but they could rip it out and put in a new one.
What could be more obvious? And yet, upon examination, each one of these assumptions was questionable. First and most important, the supposedly vast Chinese market Mao Tais and Friendship 55 was a myth. China was an extremely poor country. Its consumers didn't have the purchasing power and its state enterprises didn't have the foreign exchange necessary to buy large quantities of goods from the West—and it wasn't clear the situation would improve much for decades. One World Bank study estimated that in the mid-1980s, the amount available for consumer spending was less than $100 a year for each person in China—and that even if the Chinese economy were to enter a period of high growth, the figure in the year 2000 would be a little more than $200 per person.
Even those companies hoping to cut their production costs by manufacturing in China, like American Motors, were interested mainly because of the possibility of selling their output there. You could find cheap labor elsewhere in the world, but you couldn't find a billion consumers anywhere else. The second theme was that even if a company couldn't immediately do the kind of business it wanted in China, it would be wise at least to establish a presence there—to open an office, start some small-scale production, give a little technical help to a prospective Chinese partner, do something, anything, to get started.
