[business] I didn't wanna kill my China Pig

Not so long ago some US economist made a smart prediction on the global price trends over the next couple of decades. I can't remember neither the guy's name, nor his exact words, but the general thinking went like this: everything that can be produced in China will eventually be dirt cheap; everything that can't will get obscenely expensive.

I wonder if this trend applies to software development, and, if so, in exactly which way.
