New York Times USA Today I'm interested in knowing your thoughts on Chinese business practices as a whole; not just the latest recall of Mattel's toys Made in China. My knowledge of global economics is very limited, but I know it has something to do with the Chinese yuan being at a fixed devalued rate to the American dollar that has something to do with it. Then there's the cheap Chinese labour that's available to U.S. companies for outsourcing the production of their products that has something to do with it too. I'm trying to learn more about this issue by educating myself with what information that I can find on the web, but the information I have found is either limited in scope, or the terminology is way beyond my comprehension. Obviously, there's the possibility that the very Mac that you're reading this thread on right now may be Made in China; which could very well bias your opinion in favour of China. Myself, I don't want any kids to get hurt, but the thought of a certain amount of paranoia entering into some parents heads about toys Made in China, is just music to my ears.
