Because we earn so little~~
Damn the society!


Agreed.  But doesn't it make you angry that the products you earn so little so make, like computers, and 'western' shoes like Nike etc, are sold back to you at the same high prices as in the west?

It sure would piss me off, I know that.

"No need to worry". That's rather complacent.

Wouldn't you want to turn things around the least?

It's call the "Circle of LIfe"......

If you are able to "moderate" it, there is chance to ensure a long lived prosperous future of a nation!

No BS marketing

As Renegade has pointed out the branded goods from multinational compaines, even though they are made in China, are sold with comparable prices in China and Western countries. So Chinese brands are cheap is because they are still competing based on prices.  A company will not pass on the low cost of labour to the consumers unless it absolutely has to!!!

On a related topic of low cost labour, here is an interesting link on income gap
