Things cost a lot more here in Mexico. I will not buy products here. I wait until I can make the 4 hour trip to El Paso. I save a bundle over the costs of things at the Wal-Mart in Chihuahua. The only thing cheaper here is rent. Utilities, restaurants, cell phone, and just about everything costs more then in the USA.
People pack the stores on the border and make special trips to the USA to buy things and save money. You are living in a bubble. I thought the same as you until I moved here. People do not run their A/C often and watch every little cost. Unless you are one of the few that have more money.
A beer here is very expensive. A 6 pack costs more here in Chihuahua then in the USA. If you compare the income of the people here and the costs of products these people are living on the edge. To live in Mexico City is off the charts.
My friend just married a girl from China. A school teacher. They lived in small almost cubicle of a house. They existed she said. The income compared to the costs of goods is nothing like in the USA. The people in China operate a lot of bicycles and live on an extreme budget.
Did you read the costs of products in China as compared to income. Those facts do not lie and cannot be twisted. You can try however.
you cant get 10% growth for 30 years and expect to consumer prices to stay low...

but if consumer prices is your criteria...

how well things are going...

US hunger rate triple that in China
By Patrick Martin
17 October 2011

American workers are now three times more likely than Chinese workers to lack the means of feeding their families, according to a startling new report from the Gallup organization. The polling group found that 19 percent of Americans worried about being able to feed themselves or their families, compared to only 6 percent of Chinese.

The Gallup finding showed a near reversal in the proportions of American and Chinese workers at risk of hunger over the past three years, an indication of the shattering impact of the economic slump brought on by the 2008 Wall Street financial crash. In 2008, 16 percent of Chinese said they at times lacked the money to put food on the table, compared to 9 percent of Americans.

Although China has more than four times the population of the United States, the absolute numbers of hungry people are nearly the same: just under 80 million for China, more than 60 million in America. The similarity is particularly stark given that the United States is the world’s biggest producer and exporter of food.

Gallup’s measure of access to basic social necessities like food and health care, the United States Basic Index Score, fell to 81.4 in September, lower than the worst previous mark during the slump, the 81.5 mark hit in February and March of 2009.

The components of this index detail the deteriorating conditions of life for the American working class. From September 2008 to September 2011, the proportion of Americans with a personal physician fell from 82.5 percent to 78.3 percent. The proportion with health insurance fell from 85.9 percent to 82.3 percent. The proportion who said they had enough money to buy food for themselves and their families declined from 81.1 percent to 80.1 percent.

The findings are derived from one of the most comprehensive surveys of international living standards, interviews with 29,000 people conducted each month over the past three years in 150 countries, including 1,000 in the US and 4,000 in China. The survey encompasses 13 questions about access to food, shelter, clean water, health care and other necessities.

For Americans surveyed, the three indices of social well-being that have declined most sharply were all health-related: having a personal doctor, having health insurance, and visiting a dentist.

Have you not been following the news. Many European countries are broke and the majority are in big trouble. So they are all being effected. That means less income for China and lower wages and less jobs. They go hand in hand.
If I own a company and I make 200 million a year. But my customer base gets smaller. I then say make 100 million a year because I can live with that. But I need to let half my workforce go.
So I do not suffer but the workers do. Somewhere people will loose jobs if they loose part of their customer base.
if you own your own business then you should know the Chinese never really made any money from exporting to america...

because it is the Multinationals making the real money

they mostly saved 30% of their slave like wages...

and the Chinese government... took the money they made and invested it into US bonds...

plus China shuttered 100 thousand factories in 2008, and continued to do so... ever since...

China is moving away from its export driven economy...

at least they plan to get rid of the majority of low cost high pollution manufacturers and factories...

people always say...Chinese consumers may not be able to save the world...

but it dosent have too... just needs to save itself...

China To Become World’s Number One Importer By 2014
January 11, 2012
By Sheeraz Raza

We have heard a lot about China becoming the world’s largest this and that.

In 2009, when the world was in recession, China leapfrogged the U.S. to become the world’s largest auto market.

In 2010, China overtook Germany as the world’s largest exporter.

This year, China is likely to surpass Japan to become the world’s largest luxury goods market.

So, it shouldn’t be a surprise when The Economist predicts that China will become the world’s largest importer by 2014.

Yet, many skeptics still doubt China’s potential to be a stronghold of the world economy.

Last month, I was on BBC World News to discuss the eurozone debt crisis and whether Chinese consumers can make a difference in the world economy.

My discussion partner Johathon Holslag from the Brussels Institute of Contemporary China Studies argued that Chinese consumption is still far below its production, and people should not be over optimistic about China rescuing the world economy.

Yes, official statistics show that consumption is only 34 percent of China’s GDP (compared to 70 percent in the U.S.).

While the West’s economy is imbalanced with over-spending, the Chinese economy is imbalanced with under-consumption.

However, this dynamic is changing.

When I travel in China, I can clearly see the consumption boom in China’s large and small cities. Retail has been growing like a wildfire in recent years.

Foreign workers (and wives) pour into China
By Kent Ewing

.
.

Meanwhile, as romantic sparks fly for Chinese men at wedding banquets in Vietnam, hordes of Vietnamese migrants, many using snakeheads (traffickers in humans) who are in cahoots with Chinese employers, are sneaking into China to take low-paying factory jobs. Again, illegal cross-border traffic into Yunnan and Guangxi provinces goes back many years, but now Vietnamese migrants are penetrating deep into the manufacturing hub of Guangdong, taking jobs formerly held by Chinese workers.

The reasons for this development are two-fold: As China's standard of living improves, bottom-rung factory labor is no longer attractive to many Chinese workers; in addition, a labor law enacted two years ago to protect these workers now makes unprotected Vietnamese migrants more attractive hires for factory owners. In other words, China is becoming a victim of its own success.

In February, there were more than two million job vacancies in the Pearl River Delta, state media reported. In response, Guangdong Communist Party Secretary Wang Yang announced a 21.1% rise in the minimum wage starting May 1.

Wang's announcement should be good news for Chinese workers but, coupled with a two-year-old labor law that requires employers to pay for basic benefits such as medical care and social security insurance, it has the effect of opening the door much wider for illegal migrants from Vietnam.

As illegals, the Vietnamese are willing to accept salaries well below the minimum wage and are not protected by the Labor Contract Law. Moreover, their similar appearance allows them to blend in easily with native workers to avoid detection by Guangdong police.

The minimum wage for a low-level factory worker in the Pearl River Delta is reportedly around 1,800 yuan per month, with - thanks to the labor law - double overtime pay after eight hours of work and triple pay on holidays. But factory owners can hire unskilled Vietnamese labor for as little as 1,000 yuan a month while escaping overtime and holiday pay as well as other benefits now guaranteed to Chinese workers. They can also hire Vietnamese employees during peak season and fire them in low season without offering the severance pay to which Chinese workers would be entitled.

Thus, factory owners are understandably pleased with the deluge of illegal migrants seeking work in Guangdong; some even pay people smugglers to bring workers to their factories. As for the illegal workers, mostly farmers from Vietnam, they are happy to have a job that pays more than anything they could find at home.

Indeed, so agreeable is this illicit meeting of supply and demand in Guangdong that a number of Chinese academics have called on the government to allow foreign laborers to work in China. So far, these calls have been ignored.

Instead, Guangdong police claim to be cracking down on illegal labor. According to the official Xinhua News Agency, last year provincial police deported 180 foreigners who did not have valid work permits. So far this year, 53 illegal migrants from Vietnam have been arrested in Guangxi as they traveled on a bus toward Guangdong, and 66 others were seized on another bus in the Guangdong city of Zhuhai. Police also said they discovered 24 illegal Vietnamese workers in plastics factory in another Guangdong city, Qingyuan.

But these modest arrests no doubt represent only a drop in the bucket of illegal immigration in the Pearl River Delta.

Africa and Chinese Criminal Gangs
There is a very important dimension to the Chinese interaction with Africa which is often overlooked; the interaction of Chinese organised criminal structures with African states and their symbiotic relationship with the forces of the Chinese state and the military-industrial combines. Chinese organised criminal entities operate in virtually every African state, especially where there is a sea coast and a mining/extractive industry The Chinese are not the exclusive organised criminal structures in Africa but they have some unique niche markets. Chinese gangs control the export of wildlife-protected abalone (‘perlemoen’) which is a delicacy and an aphrodisiac in the internal Chinese market. The Chinese gangs are the major buyers and traders in illegal ivory, sharks’ fins and rhino tusks for the same market. They are major buyers of illegally-mined gold and diamonds through ‘artisanal miners’ whom they control and also through suborned miners working in legal mines.

that must be why two british banks were involved in laundering 7 billion dollars for them. I don't EVER remember the Italians making anything close to that much. Maybe a few hundred million, but NO WHERE close to a billion. Get over it. BTW, MAFIOSI is a spanish word that came to Sicily after Spain took control of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies. Do you know ANYTHING about what your talking about? The TRUE italian mafias work very closely with the Mexican Mafiosi's, because it's all about money.

You are such a stupid idiot monkey brain that I had always talk about. The Chinese are offering the Mexicans a helping hand of making drugs then sell it to the White Devils to destroy the White Devil's society the same way the British did to the Chinese that lead to the Opium war in the 1800s. Yep, KARMA is a BITCH!
I second what you said about 'Bomb Mexico' on your post 24 of this thread.
'Bomb Mexico' does not know what goes around here. He just speaks thru his 'muffler' without any knowledge of the issue.
Here is some ammunition for you to prove your point.
Search for the websites under the name of 'Zhenli Ye Gon'
and read all the other websites related to Z Y G.
that is,
Zhenli Ye Gon net worth
" " " Las Vagas
" " " 2012
" " " wife
" " " youtube
" " " mansion
" " " family
" " " house raid
" " " Mexico
after you read all of the above, you would feel that the Chinese government is also involved in this issue. If not involved, at least the Chinese goernment condone what Zhenli Ye Gon has done in Mexico. Not only the Chinese government is involved in this, but the American marfia within the US government is also involved. The Mexican government officials who sold the Mexican citizenship to Zhenli Ye Gon are also involved, that was when Vicente Fox was president of Mexico.

Next time you come to El Paso, check with all the DollarTree stores before you step in to a Walmart store. Walmart is not the cheapest place to buy in El Paso. You go in to a Walmart Store only after you can't find the things you want to buy at the DollarTree stores or the Big Lots stores.

Forget the discussion on Chinese economics and Chinese politics, it will lead you to nowhere. Sometimes it will lead to insulting each other with strangers you will never meet.

Haste sordo y viviras gordo. Deje que el cielo caiga entre los chinos.
