This is funny... except for processors, cars and a few high end things it's all made in China.
Why ? Because we are greedy and the corporations even more. Yet take a look at the iphone and other top products, they still say made in china.
Labor is cheap, and most products are crap because you pay 1$ for them, what did you expect ? It's a good thing patents still exist, if China was
allowed to clone everything they'd do it cheaper and just as good. There are sweat shops all around the world, China just makes more stuff.
Again they have good products, but these products are not so cheap and we mostly import their cheap crap because every shop dreams of buying products
for less than 1$ each and selling them for 20$.
As for them eating dogs, so what? You eat cows that are sacred to Indians for example. Studies show that pigs are smart and we still eat them ...
As for old products lasting longer: I work in the industry and new products are not made to last no matter where they are from. If you make a product
that lasts 20 years, who will you sell it to after 5 years when everybody has one.
They will fail soon enough, but if they do ... we're all dead. They invested a lot of money in IT and make good and cheap products now (let's say
cheaper, not cheap). They also prove how much things really cost:
Take a look at madeinchina.com they have a lot of things you may see in your local shops, but it's dirt cheap, it's not their fault we pay 10 times
more for it and expect it to last 10 years.
