Low Standards

or none at all.

“It can be said that the quality of China’s exports all are guaranteed,” Wang told reporters at a regularly scheduled briefing.

By what? Whom? Is this “guarantee” any good? Can I believe you when the tainted products were guaranteed?

Fool me once, erm, bad on me, fool me a-gin, I’m yer be-yotch.

I have decided that from this day forward, I will not buy any food produced in China. What’s more, I will verify to the best of my ability that producers of foods in the US and other countries don’t contain ingredients sourced in China.

That’s a tough call, but the rampant disregard Chinese producers have for their customers is nothing new. Back when imports from China were for more innocuous products that could do little harm, yeah, sure, you bet.

But exports have ballooned unchecked by effective oversight, modern methods of statistical prcess control, and Chinese authorities concern for producing quantity over quality.

Also the remoteness helps the cheeaters get away with it.

So that’s it then- not a boycott, a personal choice.

As if my life depended on it.

Tainted
Tires, Pet Food, Seafood, Chinese recalls (1,820,000 results)

UPDATE
The typical Chinese consumer has to put up with this shit as well. It is a positive note that there is allowed even a little transparency into the issue (unlike the CDO market), and that the Chinese authorities are even admitting there are issues is remarkable.

UPDATE
Another one bites the dust.  Was it a “show trial?” Will he serve- or as we’ve seen ofour self-serving “leaders” will his sentence get “commuted” after we’ve all forgotten about it.

What?
Still no outrageOh! C’mon!

Mr Garcia’s Sentido Comun, which translates as “common sense,” reckons Mr Slim and his family own a fortune equivalent to eight per cent of Mexico’s gross domestic product.
