China: Cheap No More

I just came across this piece from Fortune Small Business, the online edition. The story is similar to others we've all read recently -- China's costs are rising. For you China veterans, there's nothing in there that will surprise you. Costs are rising due to new employment and environmental laws, coupled with increases in commodity prices and a weak US dollar. The interesting part of the article is that it approaches the issue from the standpoint of small business.

I often read small business journals, as much for inspiration as for actual information, and I'll likely add this site to my list of regular scans. It looks like there's some good stuff here, including several profiles of very small businesses operating internationally.
