made in china goods are bad for you, a second recall of chinese made toys in less than a month....people why not boycott these chinese made goods? they are of poor quality, made in substandard factories with a lot of child labor and disregards of ILO rules. there no existance of "EPA" in china...so think of air pollution and other enviromental destructions happening there and your part lf it for buying chinese goods!!!!.

The bottom line is US consumers want stuff - cheap. Most of them don't care about child labor or environmental pollution. Otherwise places like Walmart would already be out of business and fair trade companies would be thriving....only a very small percentage of people are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

Thanks to the tariff system and the government giving China "Most Favored Nation" trade status, US businesses really don't have much choice but to do business with China. I would rather do business with Taiwan--higher quality goods, more open political system, better quality control, labor laws, etc. But the system is set up so that it's impossible to do. Either we get it made locally in the US and nobody buys it because they go to WalMart and get the cheaper Chinese-made version, or we make it in China and have some hope of competing.

I agree, its very sad that our govt got us into this mess........another problem is US govt sometimes borrow money from the RED china and this one is very complicated, the chinese govt is sitting on billions of $$ they made from trading with US to make sure they currency stays low and therefore their goods stays cheap in the world market. Recently our govt asked them to value their money to its real value, they refused and threatened to release the $$ they stocked....which can result in lowering the value of the mighty $$ and some s**t. Our govt decided to keep queit on persuing this fair trade demand. I see this as a blackmail and it is enuff reason to take some real reaction to against the red china
