As reported by ABC Nightly News with Diane Sawyer, the U.S. Olympic team are all wearing uniforms, including even their shoes, that have been made in China. It was also stated that these same outfits could have been made in the U.S. cheaper than China. The Olympics team receives their funding through private donors and Ralph Lauren was the designer of the uniforms. Why would these people pay China for something that could be manufactured here cheaper?
sort by best latest
When interviewed U.S. manufacturers said they could produce these garments cheaper than China, so I still wonder why the donors bought favor with the Chinese?
We have the same in the uk but realistically it's cheaper to buy the products in from elsewhere. Would a manufacturer have been quoted if the couldn't produce cheaper? in most cases no
I understand what you are saying, but the donors never looked to the homeland before they went overseas to a communist country. Gee, have you noticed that no one calls China a communist country anymore? I guess you can't call your banker names. Hmm..
