Addicted to the Lowest price  XML
Agoramania Crossroads » Who is to Blame?
Author Message




Unfortunately most Americans have become addicted to going for the lowest price which in the past fair trade practices of overseas countries. However market unbalancing created in the last decade by government subsidized .30 cents per hour markets of China and other Asian countries is devastating the industrial base of developed western countries paying wages designed to allow factory workers to be able to raise a family and purchase home and cars.
As western Democracies see more of their manufacturing capacity exit their respective countries with the inevitable rise in unemployment of abandoned factory workers Americans will need to start considering the addiction of buying the lowest cost foreign product.




Your are thinking too much. Greed is to blame. Everyone wants a bargin without giving much thougth about what is happening to their industry jobs !

I must agree, everyone is looking for a bargain. People just don't care where products are made and they dont care about the economy!




Well, Mayor John Mazziotti Palm Bay, Fla., is considering voting on whether to ban the purchase of products made in China. This after the latest spate of Chinese-made toy and pet food recalls.

If it passes, this central Florida town of 107,000 would be the first in the nation to enforce a ban on goods from one particular country, according to industry watchers.

Residents would still be free to purchase whatever goods they want, but the city itself would face restrictions.

Keep your grass roots efforts going USAB2C.com !





The Presidnet, the Senate and the United States Congress is to blame for collapsing under the exchuse that "It a Global Economy" and helping other poorer nations to raise their standaard of living is good for America.




YES, and I'm addicted to oil too but don't you dare drill in America !




No argument here.

It seems to me, that both the Repulican and Democratic governments are more interested in catering to the Mexican/Candian governments a.k.a NAFTA. We have allowed this to happen and of course, our congress is corrupt but I can't blame them entirely. Most Americans are only interested in Monday night footbal and American Idol. This has been happening for years and now........our economy is in a shambles!!

Great insight by Anonymous.
We have become addicted to lowest prices.
No way we can compete with China and other Asian countries wages. I intend to be sentsitive to looking more at where items are made !
