Westerners + Japanese LIE
It's clear that the Japanese and the Westerners are just plain arse jealous of China's rise, and they have now for years resort to lies and propaganda to libel China's product quality, and talk China's economy down. This recent pesticide scare is exactly that - a scare tactic that is calculated to diminish Japanese demand for Made in China foods. |
The patterns are familiar by now. People die of food poisoning in Japan every year. People still die from eating fugu in Japan each year. But you don't hear calls for banning food made in Japan!! NOBODY died from eating those Japanese rigged dumplings, yet 76% of Japanese polled say they will not eat food imported from China.
Toys, America - again, NOBODY died from any toys imported from China. But given all that media furor, you'd thunk tens of thousands died regularly each and every year!! Poignant it is to look at the 120,000 Made in USA trailers distributed by FEMA after Katrina. The EPA is now asking everyone to move out, since the formaldehyde levels are from 500 to 4,000% of the allowable level for dwellings. You see that reported in the American press with anything close to the allegedly "dangerous toys" month long smear campaign??
At the core of these lies are trade actions and protectionism, plain and simple. These should be met head on with at least dollar for dollar trade action. If China loses one dollar of sale on food or toys, Japan and/or America loses a corresponding amount in an area of China's choice. The list should start with the highest profit margin industries - in Japan's case, rice and Kobe beef, in America's case, software.
In comparison, Chinese routinely die from auto related deaths, and most of that point to defects in either design or manufacturing. Why isn't China even more justified in banning all Japanese and U.S. made autos and auto parts?
Fight fire with fire - that's the only thing the bullies understand.
