Poorly Made in China chronicles the experiences of an American working for a U.S. outsourcing firm in Chinese manufacturing and highlights the disturbing and dangerous practice known as "quality fade"––the deliberate and secretive habit of widening profit margins through a reduction in the quality of materials over time. The author argues that U.S. importers don′t stand a chance against factory owners in China who are savvier and who have little to lose by placing American health and safety at risk. A well–written and impassioned narrative, Poorly Made in China is one insider′s account of the quality–fade tactics used by China in seven industries, including health and beauty care, diamonds, and construction. Poorly Made in China will sound an alarm that all of America should heed. Paul Midler (Scottsdale, AZ) has been working with China for close to two decades. He created China Advantage, a services firm, to assist American companies with their business objectives in East Asia. The author earned his MBA from the Wharton School and is a Mandarin speaker.
