In a lot of cases things are made better nowadays. Sawstop (the blade sensing technology), veritas planes etc.
I disagree about hand tools. Older ones are great, just not better than some modern tools (veritas, lie-nielson).

Where things really went downhill though, is that nearly nothing is made in the USA anymore.
