A poignant story about Chinese manufacturers sidestepping their American partners touched off a firestorm of discussions both privately and public everywhere on the internet. The story reached far beyond the wedding business and into other industries affected by the ongoing assault of foreign intervention who’ve decided they are ready to step out from behind the curtain and from the shackles of their American partners.
eWedNewz sources recall Chinese manufacturers coming to the United States in the early 1970′s to study how production lines efficiently made decent-quality garments at affordable prices that could be mass-marketed. Trade agreements started by historic trips by President Nixon .But it was never explained to the people of the United states the jobs and benefits would be disproportionately given to the Chinese, leaving the once-great American economy built on manufacturing in shambles. Of course these were not the original intentions. But who can deny that’s not the way it’s gone?
According to a piece by the UCLA International Institute
Richard Solomon, president of the United States Institute of Peace, concluded by saying g the current China-US relationship is “strategically ambiguous” in his keynote speech. The two countries have different interests in international affairs like the Taiwan issue. However, they have shared concerns, such as creating jobs.
According to eWedNewz sources:
“We basically taught them how to manufacture efficiently and they used their cheap labor to create products at lower cost to help both countries. But as business owners increased competition among themselves, they abandoned American companies (and workers) shifting more production to China (and other places) leaving skilled American Citizens with no place left to work. Factories closed and entire industries dried up, taking jobs along with them. What good are cheap products if no one can afford them?”
eWedNewz continues our investigation talking with business owners who support the idea of how China is soliciting business directly, sans their American partners. Some admit:
“A few years ago I would not have considered doing business with them. Today, I am looking at samples and will give it some serious thought,” say sources who are not ready to cut ties with American suppliers.
But for how long? U.S manufacturing sources with production in China report:
“The people working in the factories (In China) are aware of their importance on the american economy. Slowly, they want to raise their own standard of living to meet the lifestyle of relatives already living in America.”
According to a 2012 report:
“For the first time, the influx of Asians moving to the U.S. has surpassed that of Hispanics,”
Sources aware of the events on both sides of the world feel the political landscape will continue to favor the East and give every benefit allowed to them– at the cost of the people of the United states.
