    Responding to Zhong from New York: Great they should buy their own products just like before they Deng open the China door for investment when people were eat roots to live. Don't you understand economic at all? But Actually even the Chinese don't like their own products. They have to cross over into Hong Kong to buy baby milk. By the way why are you living in New York? You should be in China and enjoy life there. Duh...Dope

    It's a good excuse because after all, products from China are questionable in quality, while the Vietnamese counterparts have better chance to last longer, and more reliable. It's about the time spent to finish the products before being brought out out to the market. Quality and quantity can be accomplished if you know what you're doing, even it's hard to combine them both.

    First, the USA companies should stop shipping U.S.A. jobs to China.
    Second, U.S government should improve their tax policies on small companies to encourage them to make more products for their people.
    Third, big whole sale/retailers should start reduce their deals with China and eventually stop purchasing any products Made in China for gaining more profits.

    I've been doing my part by not to buy product Made in China. However, it's very difficult to find other products made in other countries. Therefore, I'm only reluctant to buy Made in China product or avoid by not to buy it.
    I wish Vietnamese will continue to support their country by not to buy products Made in China. Even though, each one of us is climbing the stiff hill, but each and everyone of us try to do it, and we shall achieve our goals. Remember, even Vietnamese people are currently living oversea will support our beloved Vietnam country to fence off aggressive invader Communist of China.

    It would be wonderful to boycott "Made in China" products but unfortunately one must be (first) financially better off in order to boy Chinese products because "Made in XXX" are relatively more expensive!!!
    But don't give up, everything starts/begins from small. All we need is initial force after than velocity will follow!!!
