Personally, I see doing business in China about as logical as, say, giving
430 6th graders laptops with Internet access, and expecting them to pay
attention in the classroom... Oh, and cutting the sports programs to
afford those laptops. Man, if someone had given me a laptop in 6th grade,
I would have sold it!
Some countries have an abundance of one thing while they lack another.
So, what they have too much of is cheap, and too little of, is costly.
It goes crazy from that point.
China has a lot of cheap stuff and a lot of cheap labor, and importing
from China and/or manufacturing in China is good business.
To work in China, one of the biggest markets in the world, you follow
China's rules. If you don't like the rules you don't have to.
But what you guys spew out is China-hate. Is that the kind of propaganda
you get fed in schools?
I am happy we've been able to discuss this like adults, here on NANOG.
After all, this is about human networking.
