Im sure most of us are aware that most products that you're using are manufactured in some remote sweat shop or factory in China. Maybe if you go on some random forum, you might start seeing 1 post accounts advertising mainstream designer apparel for ridiculous prices or on Ebay merchants putting up 10 exact replica G Star jackets all sold @ 1/4 of its retail price. The fact is that we do produce a lot of shit, bootleg replicas of products, which falls apart or might kill you. Although I cant deny that bootleg products are all abysmal quality.
What I just find totally contradicting is the fact that people criticize the products, yet continue to support them. Again, cant blame them, since practically every consumer product can be manufactured in China. But the public seems to blame every manufacture in China for this imperfection. In my opinion, majority of these products come from shady, illegal, unlicensed and mismanaged bootleggers. China is roughly almost the same size as the U.S but more than 4x the population inhabit PRC, its impossible to manage without extensive corruption in the administration. Every so often you see hundreds of poor coal miners dying because of illegal nonadministrative mining or corporations trying to save money opt not to regulate safety equipment or the environment around them.
All-in-all to be honest China doesnt even need to worry about losing its foreign economic dependability*, in my view its the total opposite. Even though I was never really fond of China, since all the shit we get from everyone is true. But sooner or later if not now, everything you own is made by us and either sold to you at ridiculous prices. Muhahahaha!!
