More on Exports from China
In some recent posts, I wrote about the disadvantages of exporting jobs overseas, and importing goods from China. In the Sunday, 3/23/08, edition of the Poughkeepsie Journal, there was an article about electronics imported from that country. As it turns out, viruses have been found in various electronics devices manufactured in China. We’ve had toys with lead paint, contaminated toothpaste and pet food, and now we have to contend with viruses! When are we going to wise up and realize the penalty we are paying for getting goods a few bucks cheaper?
