Actually it's the businesses and corporations who want to cut costs and increase profits that drive this dynamic.
but if enough consumers decided not to buy goods manufactured in China, and were willing to pay a little more for goods manufactured in the U.S., cutting into corporate profit margins, creating an incentive for manufacturers to manufacture in the U.S., more would do so. At the end of the day, it is the consumer who drives the train and votes with his or her wallet.
So are businesses. My only point was that consumers ultimately drive the train, and placing the entire blame on businesses for goods manufactured in China leaves out half the equation.
Business always wants to cut costs and improve margins. That is part of running a business.
But that is a different issue from Chinese product bashing.
Not the case for folks like me, who buy directly from Chinese manufacturers.
Or in the case of my amps, for a kit builder in Hong Kong you sourced his gear from the mainland.
But yes, there are a number of US and European manufacturers who do little more than design, engineer and assemble their gear from parts sourced from Asia.
