wow.... That would be like saying the children of Darfur can just grow wings and fly away...
"They will sell to their own people" - 5% can afford to buy them~!
China has about 150 million people living below the United Nations poverty line of one US dollar a day.
Nearly 500 million Chinese people live on less than $2 a day.
Nearly 40% of the country live on under $2 a day
Are you under the impression that we are unable to alter our "system" to fill the gap left by boycott?
Would we trip and fall down for a second..... Would it force domestic factories and jobs? For Sure!
Its going to suck on several different levels to begin with.. But we would come out the other side 10X better.
Oh, and back to your flippant attitude about the boycott.... Walk around your house, pick something up, pick up nearly anything..... Flip it over....
US imported 411 Billion from China in 2011. That's just the US... Now add NATO countries - Total financial meltdown!
To act as though a boycott, wouldn't be close to total destruction, is either lack of common knowledge of US/China trade facts, or just another case
of "If the conversation has an anti-US vibe, any country not the US becomes a saint, that can kick Americas arse.
