And there are signs, given the post 9-11 retrenchment, that creative talent is locating elsewhere. "The most advanced cell phones are being made in Salo, Finland, not Chicago. The world's leading airplanes are being designed and built in Toulouse and Hamburg, not Seattle." And Lord of the Rings was made in New Zealand.
