You don't know why "Westerners" buy cheap Chinese-made stuff?

There is a very simple truth.

Thank you. You're self destructing.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Wine is a lot more than you can imagine. To wine connoisseurs, it is a cult drink. Tea is another  ...

I thought you were adverse to cults. Now you claim to be part of one.

Why do Westerners buy cheap stuff from China? Probably because they don’t have the money to buy expensive Western luxury brands from Europe.


Yes, of course many don't have the money. But it's the same in China, regardless of the luxury coming from abroad or from China.

That said, in typical western country many who might have money, satisfy for lesser quality and cheaper products and use the money for something else. These countries usually have more developed service industries than China yet has, and have more to choose from - often even the rural farmers.

This "more" includes both range and depth of services. For example in things like music or movies they have access to wider range of entertainment, while in China that range will always be smaller due to state controls. Certain service segments are completely missing in China - for example hunting, and recreational fishing is a joke here (at least inland).

Chinese companies now want to make expensive luxury goods for the Chinese consumer market.


Yes, I agree with that. But since westerners keep buying only the cheap Chinese stuff, in their eyes China remains a country of cheap low quality production. The masses abroad wouldn't know any better.

Sorry but I am talking about WESTERNERS who buy cheap stuff online not AFRICANS who hustle for a living in the streets of Nairobi. Now I know what you do for a living.
