Made in China
I just finished reading the book by Sara Bongiorni titled “A Year Without "Made in China": One Family's True Life Adventure in the Global Economy.” The 227-page book describes how a family survived without buying “Made in China “labeled imports for an entire year -- 365 days. The author and her family decided to forgo Chinese factory made sneakers, sunglasses, nails, sheets, household goods, and more. The memoir is wildly humorous, but got me thinking about our economy, especially since watching the Beijing Olympic Games.
How much of the healthcare supplies we use – IV bags, supplies etc, are “Made in China” today?? Anyone ever wonder if they have seen "Made in China" labels on health equipment that we use on a daily basis? I never thought that a global issue like this would hit home. I began scrounging around within my own apartment for items that held the label “Made in China.” My forks did. My flower pots did. My towels held the same label. All "Made in China."
What next? Healthcare systems owned by China?
As I watch the stock markets fluctuate, the major sellouts of major firms, what will come next ? Made in China ?
