I wrote before about Free Trade. And I am for it, but only if it is Fair Trade. And we all know that it’s not the case. And because it’s not, I got somewhat upset when I received a mass emailing with these pictures as attachments. Look as the young Chinese above. No, she is not trying to show you that she loves American burgers. As a matter of fact, she doesn’t care about America. She is holding a hamburger-shaped computer flash memory drive that she is trying to sell to me and to you at a fat American price and a very lean Chinese cost. As a kind of visual representation of the Chinese motto “Americans, we are going to eat you alive” I found the picture quite ironic and provocative.
Then, I found out that the company is called China-Vision, probably because “China-Invasion” has evidently too much of a negative connotation. Then, I went to the website, found out that they have an office only in Bejing (good luck if your $40 flash drive never works), but they promise they will answer your questions ( before you order) in English at Bejing time (GMT +8) because you are all supposed to know your local GMT time wherever you live on US territory! Look at the team picture. They have a very young, nice and smiling team. I understand the smiling part especially after I checked that theirwebsite traffic coming from US residents ordering their junk is quite big. And I got nervous thinking that very soon I am going to receive an email from China selling the motorcycle parts that my fellow builders and myself created 6 months ago, but at 1/10th of our price, with a service available in China at GMT+8, with a staff of Chinese teenagers dressed as bikers (picture included to look real) who will answer all your questions before you buy. Not after. When you receive the part and have a problem, just contact by email your preferred “American Internet Motorcycle Dealer”. He will answer for free to all the questions you wanted to ask to your Chinese vendor. ChinaVision.
