Of course there are also the famous differences between the
productivities of the economies of different countries: the differing
national average productivities of Japan and the United States and
France and Germany. Actually, though, there are differences between
the productivities and wealths of different business sectors within
the same country. For example, the German metal-working industry has a
productivity rivaling that of the United States, so the Germans are
certainly capable of organizing industries well, but the German
beer-brewing industry is less than half as productive as the American
beer-brewing industry.
-- and what does this tell you about the relative qualities of
German and American beer?


gee, the French wine industry is so much less productive than
Pepsi and Coca-Cola.
