    If you have ever worked with or tried to outsource to India or any asian country, with the notable exception of Japan, in an attempt to reduce costs or due to the economic positives linked to these countries having a high supply and consequent low demand for staff in any sector, let alone technology, you will soon realise that even with supremacy by sheer numbers there is no way that these cultures have anywhere near the innovative power that results from the Israelis need to be creative in order to overcome due to neccesity. It is a bit like the failure of the experiment that pits 1000 monkeys with typewritters against Shakespear. Of course the Chinese and the Indians might be helped by their need to be creative and innovative with supporting such large populations but obviously any problems associated with such large populations have not yet become so dire a to create the type of ergencey as those problems faced by Israel. Neccesity is after all the mother of invention.
