Someone finally hit the nail on the head.
Us companies further the problem by try to make shareholders happy by pushing out costs and making supernormal profits all for short term gain
This is what pushed the economy to the brink of colapse and it ain't over yet boys so hold on for a ruff ride.
I tend to not buy China or at Walmart but sometimes there is just no option. Walmart does have good customer service. You can return anything for any reason to Walmart. There are many retailers that will not do that. I recently got ****ed at Radio Shack for $60 and I will never buy anything there again. I quit buying at Sears 20 years ago over similar issues. K-Mart the same. I won't even walk thru thier stores.
