Because they don't have to in the NWO economy, plain and simple. They make their products with slave labour in china and india, then can import them
to wherever, USA, Europe, without any big taxes. There is a reason there used to be big import taxes, and a reason why the people that hold monopolies
on the basic needs of humans lobbied hard for the tax free trade agreements.
Even just NAFTA messed it all up, think about it. Shoes are a basic need, so now shoe companies moved to mexico, why pay americans to make them at 15
and hour, when they can get mexicans to do it for 15 a week? And they still charge 100 bucks for a pair of shoes, that cost them less than 20 to make.
It's not like they passed them savings on to us when they started outsourcing like crazy, did they?
Also quality has dropped bigtime! Back when I was a poor kid, I would get one new pair of shoes every 2 years, and they lasted. Now I am lucky if I
can go half a year without shoes boots getting holes in them, and I was way more active in them when I was a kid, most time spent outdoors running
around in the woods, after school day. Now all I really do is work! And they don't last nearly as long.
Same with jeans, used to last years, they end up as cutoff shorts after like half a year. Same with vehicles, electronics, frikken everything! My
first computer lasted me over 10 years, when I upgraded the thing still worked, but was getting too old to run current windows. Now these days
hardware breaks down in like a year, drivers are written nerfin good hardware to make you buy new hardware. IT's all a giant racket and I am getting
sick of it.
