Demonizing China

In any event, the problem wasn’t that the toys were made in China. The problem is that unethical corporate executives ignored warnings that the toy could be dangerous. China manufactures approximately 80 percent of the toys in the United States. The reason? As the New York Times article points out, using a cheap source of labor is “highly profitable.” I think the profit angle is key. As long as there is a demand for cheap consumer goods, companies will continue to exploit China for its workforce and the ability to pass the buck.
