It matters not, if they are inferior or superior.
People everywhere want American goods.(maybe except in America) It is a statement about themselves. To have something from here.
Yes, politically we are pretty evil on a global scale. They have good reasons to hate the U.S. we are mischievous and meddlesome. And others have cause to see the U.S. as hope.
That aside...we live in a land of endless greed.
What you want is all you need, and anything can be had. America is the place to be. This is rather exciting to global consumers. And it has been hyped up through anti-U.S. propaganda.
I think the people of the world want American appliances, gadgets, clothing, movies, etc ..everything.
Mostly wrong. What appliances, gadgets or clothing ? Neither the USA nor any other western country makes those things any more. As for movies, you're right, and though the US still makes the BEST and WORST movies, foreigners want the worst Charles Bronson/Batman/Superman type. Go figure.
Foreigners do like American fast food, yes, and the result is, foreign franchises bring more profit to their American head offices than domestics ones. Coke and Pepsi make more profits abroad than in the US.
