We can’t change global events and imperial legacies by ourselves, but what about education? "Is Vietnamese labour cheaper than us? We should find out what is the reason behind this.”Thus ran one below the line comment on a story about Vietnam overtaking Bangladesh to become the second-largest ready-made garment exporting nation after China.I will never understand why people on social media platforms spend more time typing out a question than they would have on looking up the answer. No is the answer of course. Vietnam may not be a high wage country, but on IMF estimates its per capita GDP (in PPP terms) is heading towards twice that of Bangladesh.
