To be handed out at Shanghai airport as foreigners get off the plane,
This review is from: Poorly Made in China: An Insider's Account of the China Production Game (Kindle Edition)
I used to keep a stack of Paul's books in my office and hand them out like candies to bright-eyed innocents who had just landed in China and were hoping to make a fortune from sourcing products that were cheap as chips and could be sold for great profit.
In the old days (I arrived in Hong Kong in the early eighties) it was certainly easy to make money trading and sourcing but those times are over and the average Chinese manufacturer these days will eat most foreign buyers alive (then burp a few times).
Just last week we had a fellow in the office in tears who had bought 20 containers of used cooking oil to be re-cycled only to find that he'd been sold sea water and the company took all his money and vanished.
Having retired back to Old Blighty now, all I can advise is: read Paul's book and if you want quality then buy products made in the UK (like Churchs' shoes, Hiut jeans and Ercol furniture) or Germany and pay more money for them, but they will last longer.
