I'm guilty of sending a large portion of my businesses' money to China and to everyone's surprise it's not a personal choice. My customers demand it, not by saying "I want Chinese products" but due to the fact that domestically-made plumbing supplies cost two to three times what a Chinese-made import does. The contractors and homeowners are just not willing to pay the domestic price and therefore, in an effort to keep cash flowing, I am forced to funnel import products into my inventory.
It's cheaper for a company in the US to manufacture a product in China and ship it halfway around the world to distribute within the US than it is for that company to get a local manufacturer to create the product. It's ridiculous.
I'll tell you what else, in our industry (material handling equipment), Chinese equipment used to be pure poo 10 years ago. Now, they are making quality product for cheap. They used to make the best Fart Cushions, now they are making damn fine lift trucks.
