^none of you make any sense. absolutely nonsensical and there are few legitimate reasons given. i think the real truth is people are upset about loss of jobs and/or china's rise. i think that is the real issue everyone is dancing around.

ACTUALLY it's OBVIOUS AND PATHETIC. LMAO

All I have to say is, I will never EVER drive a Chinese car, not for another 20-30 years until they catch up with safety standards.

i'm sure people said the same thing when japanese cars first started showing up here. more recent example would be korean automobiles. they were pos back in the 80's. hyundai is pretty decent now.

And what about you? What do you think about Chinese products?
My iPod touch 64 gb 3rd gen was made in China and it is top quality.
Products made in China are as good as the company that manufactures them wants them to be.
Why are you saying that chinese made products have zero quality? Everything is made in China, your Nike shoes, your tv, your iPod, your macdonalds happy meal box, everything.

LOL. um i was just at the store yesterday looking at quality pot and pan sets (because i'm not cheap) like cuisinart and circulon among other brands and they are very good quality. guess what? made in china.

i also got a cuisinart knife set that's made in china for xmas. it's a totally erroneous fallacy to state or even believe that everything made in china is of zero quality. that just smells of demonizing a country for other passive aggressive reasons.

would someone like to take me on about this issue of quality of cuisinart products and made in china?? they wouldn't dare but slink away because they know they can't legitimately so they just rail on about walmart. not very smart. lmao

One thing I always thought was funny was when folks say they like to buy American so they go out and let's say for instance purchase a pair of shoes, usually expensive, say New Balances(you know the ones "made in the usa") and think they are being so patriotic, yet don't realize that most of the other shoes New Balance makes are in China.

Probably your house is full with it.

If american companies want to make me buy their stuff, they should be more competitive, ... not necessarily cheaper but better. I hate people or companies who just adverstise with "made in usa", obviously they have no other reasons for me to buy their product.

China can manufacture most of our goods just as well as the Swedes, Germans, Mexicans, or Americans. The difference is what specifications R&D and Quality Control feed to the Chinese factory.

Suppose Amelorn's Shoe Company opens a factory in Shanghai. I produce two lines of shoes, the Amelorn Limited (the special line) and A by Amelorn (the diffusion line).

A by Amelorn is sold to JC Penney and Macys. Most shoes are synthethic materials on rubber soles. The more expensive will be a cheap, corrected grain leather. They retail for $75 and last for 1-2 years.

Amelorn Limited will be produced for Saks 5th Avenue and Nordstrom. I ship imported European leather for the shoe upper and the sole. This is a supple, full grain leather. Experienced cobblers are employed as factory foreman on the assembly line to make minor adjustments and "hand finish" these shoes. They will retail at $250. Their quality will rival most English or Italian shoes. With a cobbler's help, these shoes will last 20+ years.

China ships what HQ in Dallas/NY/LA etc tell them to. Take it up with corporate, not the factory (with rare exception).
