So, it would seem on the surface that everything China is now bad. Maybe Harvard and other elite universities are onto something, attempting to curb the asian student population in their institutions.
Sure, it’s easy to look at Hollywood and the NBA and talk about how they’ve sold out American values for higher profits. Yes, they have.
However, I must ask, with all the recent news coming out…I have to wonder, how many products from China do you purchase everyday, week or month? Have you stopped shopping on Amazon or at Walmart or Target or Costco?
How many small American businesses have been able to remain competitive, simply because of China’s low wages for workers?
So yeah, it’s easy to look outward and talk about how horrible James Harden is, when he refused to slander one of his markets.
And sure, it’s always easy to sit back and trash talk Hollywood and Disney for catering to a large portion of their market as well.
Realize that marketing is everything and everywhere. In America and the West in general, the most successful marketing strategy is the hero and villain relationship. Victims and Bullies are profit makers.
In China, it’s all about appealing to the Emperor. Chinese culture is proud and devout to their rulers. So, in order to appeal to a market like China, these people and organizations must kiss the ring.
These people must succumb to the crown, if they are to line their pockets!
Let’s be frank, until all of us are ready to exclusively buy American and hire American, none of us have any room to judge. Put your money where your mouth is.
I’m not saying what any of these people did was right, but it is understandable.
If you wanna make your dollar go farther, best not to spend it on American goods.
Perhaps the problem with China is its history of trade with America. Maybe, if it was easier and cheaper to build and manufacture in America, maybe, this wouldn’t be taking place.
Then again, who am I to judge?
Still think that $15.00 minimum wage is a great idea?
Still think that universal income will somehow offset foreign markets from invading American businesses?
Maybe, more money won’t solve a thing. Maybe more money will simply make it much easier for foreign manufacturers to continue selling in America.
