Continuing Tennessee’s thoughts, I don’t feel anything is wrong with Chinese goods. They are what they are. As said before, if directed, they do what they’re told. If no one tells them, they do as they please (like anyone else would). Nothing wrong with that. I think the problem with producing what some see as junk is their exposure to the rest of the world. They don’t see what we see is wrong with the way they do things (sometimes) so they don’t change what we perceive as their flaws. Why? Because they don’t know any different.

Moving on, I don’t blame the Chinese for making inferior tools for the big names. They do what they are asked to do. Those big names are asking for lower and lower manufacturing to shelf costs so they can increase profit. If Americans showed they were willing to buy on a quality basis rather than a price basis, I’m sure the goods China cranked out to us would be of higher quality.

Because that is not the case and the majority of us (Americans) want things for the lowest price possible, we should not be surprised when we are given junk.

If you want quality, be prepared to pay for it.
