A Year without “Made in China”

Published by at 12:29 am under Reflection Blog

The author discusses America’s dependency on items produced in China. I feel like this is a problem of our own devising, since we’re the ones who decided that exporting our labor was most beneficial, despite the backlash. It seems nearly impossible to find alternatives to products that are made in China, though I’m curious whether those alternatives are any better. I know people have been turning to other products, ones that claim to be 100% american, but is that enough to make a product significantly “better?” I wonder whether or not people actually think about what they buy and how it affects the world, though that might sound dramatic; I truly believe that such decisions have far reaching implications. I’m curious to see what the class will make of such a thought-provoking text.
