If these subcontractors are just paying lip service to Apple's rules, then maybe Apple could open their own factory over there. Are foreign companies allowed to do that in China?

I don’t know. Are you maybe going to say that medicine was freer back then, and the free market is better at innovation that the state, so there were more discoveries back then and fewer today? That could be the case, the free market is better at innovation.
