This thought occurred to me, as I looked at all the Chinese stuff (mostly decorative) at stores like Target – rip them off as they have, and continue to, rip us off, on original ideas.
At the risk of angering someone out there, I’ll say it anyway: the Chinese are thieves. I don’t mean your neighbors from China stealing your stuff, I mean in a corporate sense – they copy our DVDs, Software, and all kinds of engineered stuff, and sell it either as a cheap copy, or as a blatant counterfeit. Go to Chinatown in NYC if you don’t believe me.
So how about a little pay back, craftsman style? LOL
Make a better copy of the crap they send to us, and sell it at a higher price? Let’s say they have a nice style dresser or table at Target, which I can guarantee is made in China. Rip them off. Make a copy of the style, but this time using a finish that won’t rub off, drawers that won’t fall apart, and something you don’t have to put together; steal their style, improve the follow-through.
Fight fire with fire.
Maybe this is just an anger piece, maybe this is a decent proposition – I’m not sure.
Thanks for listening. :)
-- Have a blessed day!
