The advantages of the Gutenberg movable type system over Asian predecessors

I think the author underrates Ulman Stromer. Stromer didn't just bring paper-making to Germany in 1390. Stromer managed to produce paper with a paper mill which is a lot cheaper than producing it without a paper mill. 

The Chinese mostly produced paper manually. Their paper was more expensive.
