Wish you have a big bargain in TaoBao.


Yea, Tabao is cool, but kinda risky... it often happens that the money on taobao account gets stolen (and I know several people whom this happend to), so I don't really trust that platform.

Anyway, I'm not a consumption and bragain enthusiast and rather spend time working than shopping or looking for cheap things. And daily life in China is so cheap that I  hardly ever manage to use my budget up when I'm there, so I'm not really price sensitive...

What I still couldn't figure out so far: Why is cheap food in China often better than expensive food?

Keep in mind that in the United States, it is legally permissible for companies to pay money to politicians in order to let them sell dangerous and fraudulent  products to citizens.  For example, virtually all American pharmaceutical products don't work and in fact harm you, but the companies pay millions to Congressmen so that they will allow the products to be sold.  And most other American products are poor quality and break right away because the companies place more emphasis on profit margins and purposely put cheap poor quality parts in the products and then pay money to Congressmen so that they will let the junk products be sold to citizens.  If China wants to be successful, they need to invest in their own brands and over time, their own brands will improve.  The public should be willing to sacrifice a little so that in the long run, their brands will get better.

{chuckle} Was wondering when the party was going to be over - given the number of twits that I still hear talking about 'opening new markets' in China, India, etc.  I just shake my head, watching the IP get Hoovered out, while the same people begin to realize what a 51/49 stake really means.  Please, let the walls come up hard, fast, and heavy - so all the twits can finally realize that foreign investment is another term for 'snake eyes'.

"I put it to you that if no U.S. American drug was working, China would have zero drugs to sell to its own patients".


I hope the day will come, that China "have zero U.S. American" drugs to sell to its own patients.
By then, the people of China truly have awakened.
Just read up on 'GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)' and the Finland disaster. The Fin's will pay  for them poor kids for life.
