This is what happens when both parties sell out the American public and workers by off-shoring critical health and safety devices and processes to a country with no regard for either and no penalties for violating standards or laws.

DeadBaby: Damn. I really hate the Chinese mindset that you can basically kill people if it means you get a little extra money.

It happens because everyone from the top executive to the lowest supplier is trying to cut corners and make a buck.

The free market more or less worked in the US because reputation carried alot of weight. If someone delivered a box of failure, it could haunt their business for decades.
These days you can buy a great reputation through the television. Because people listen to the talking heads more than their neighbors and friends, a company can convince them their products are just as good and only cost less.

So what if the product poisoned your dog or literally exploded in your face.
A slight change to the brand name followed by an ad campaign will fix everything.

fnordfocus: I thought free market forces and tax breaks were supposed to make this impossible.

That's certainly understandable when you don't know jack about the operation of markets or taxes. Maybe in addition to admitting here on Fark that your knowledge is flawed, you should engage in some study to correct that.
