The Answer Is Simple;

Cheap Labor. China labor cost per hour is 23 times less than western countries. Result lower end user product cost.

not only labor cost...

the manufacturers/companies wanted to market their suggestive retail prices low in order to have fast turn-over rate & make some quick profits.  it all depends on the company itself not really about being made in CHINA.

Chinese are too hard working, disciplined, and enduring

The Chinese characteristics of hardworking, disciplined, respectful, and enduring have been exploited by merchants and exporters.

These hard working people are manipulated and squeezed to the max.  They work long hours under conditions that are substandard in safety and health protection.  The importers from foreign countries play them against each other until the prices are so low that the factories cannot afford to provide for adequate health and safety safeguards.  Wages are low, low, low.  China is the sweat shop that sustains the living standards of the middle income and low income families in western nations.

That's why I hope China implements minimum wage standards to provide low-wage workers adequate living standards, and soon.

That's why Premier Wen calls for FOODSTUFF PRICING checks.

We need to ensure that the price of CHEAP PROTEIN is available to our people.
The Pioneering work by CP in Thailand is wondrous.
We could have protein at 2.5x cost of feedmill of corn + protein supplements.

Concentrate on Chicken, Seafood prices for the people.
Pork and Beef would be the luxury food for the masses.
At last check, grass grazing Beef stock cost around Rmb12 - 15 per kg to produce (Source: Beef Production co. in Inner Mongolia)...some increase in BEEF CONSUMPTION to replace the expensive Rmb21per kg for pork in BEIJING REGION is encouraged.


cheerios!

Mr. Myfriend,

Your logic is too simple. It contains "manipulation" that Amerikan Regimes Dark Siders would want!

Try to look forward a little bit, we are now moving towards MODERN AGE CONSUMPTION patterns in China.
This is when provinces after provinces will HIT THE US$5,000 PER CAPITA mark.
This is when CAR USE jumps!
At present, Guangzhou, Shenzen, Shanghai, Beijing and parts of Zhejiang and Shangdong have this advantage.

Once entire China reaches the AVERAGE US$5,000 per capita mark, it would be somewhere in 2010 - 2012...
we can expect ANOTHER AMERIKAN REGIME FINANCIAL ATTACK. (mark my words, the Amerikan Regime has been doing the same in Latin America, Asia and Europe whenever another financial MILESTONE is achieved by RIVAL REGIONS.)

At that time....the income levels would jump...
and probably Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Yunnan, Guangxi, Gansu regions will start to enjoy that US$100 a month assembly salaries!


YOU GOT TO BE PATIENT!


cheerios!

not so easy....

It's also ECONOMY OF SCALE.
and ACCESS TO COMMODITIES
and PROPER EDUCATION TO THE MASSES

and so many other reasons, Mr. Convair.

Do not mislead, Mr. Myfriend, a Riau Brethren of our Malaya super centre to choose wrong choices!


cheerios!
