Poorly Made In China

I have recently read a very interesting book on the manufacturing industry in China by Paul Midler. Poorly Made In China is the title of this book and it explains many of the experiences that the author had in these areas in China where I used to live. I knew alot of it though not his individual stories and can attest to this books authenticity and I do recommend it. Here is a related article on a drywall scandal

I saw a report on that drywall last year, it's some toxic stuff as reported.
The homeowners had to strip it all out, and put in new after it was put in .
The really bad part is living in the toxic stuff, and not knowing. Also it's not just replacing drywall, there is molding, baseboards, and wherever edging is that might be against it.
Health cost, disposal, and other cost is something to be considered.

A huge health and financial burden. Corruption is the culprit.

Corruption everywhere, the workers is likely the only ones not at fault.

Not sure if this stuff is poorly made, from the AK magazines I own they are pretty hard core.

Poor girl :( it's sad parents, and friends are like that. I hope them a happy life .
i understand parents wanting the best for their children, but give support if they are happy.

This culture of skimming,cutting corners and not caring about quality I believe will keep China from becoming a first world nation in spite of their working together in their tongs and triads.

Here is yet another example of why I won’t buy food from China including or especially pet food. Here’s ten foods from China to be avoided. https://achnews.org/2019/07/05/organic- ... hoPzFJxbBY

:laugh: Why even go, I wouldn't try anything there just from those reviews.
None of the stuff looked right, and I was trying to ignore them trying to make it look bad from the start.

I wonder how much dog and rat I unwittingly ate over there. I wouldn’t eat that watery goo that they claimed was pure honey and last but not least don’t forget the old oranges painted orange to make them appear edible.

The honey from China is not worth, or safe to consume, most isn't''t honey at all from reports, and what is is toxic from pollution, and other things.
As a matter of fact most store bought honey is not pure honey, and that that is has been processed so it's not healthy as it should be like raw honey is.
Olive oil is the same, it's getting harder to find good food.
