LOL....Have you noticed somthing? 6000$ SUVs drive like they cost I dont even like USA made cars, but Chinese products are a long way from eing high quality.
how much did DVD player cost you two years ago, and how much does DVD player cost at this time? ---Chinese defined the price as well as the quality for you. Donot be bias, discuss it!

by the way, if you still want to pay 300 dollars for DVD player, do it as you will!

that is not the issue, SHERMAN, the issue is who defined the price !!!

The result is: American salary experined almost no increase at all in last 4 years, in fact, most of them, get payment slashed!!!!!

when the american dream is over,so is the defense.

Well now a days we want cheaper stuff, and the only way to make something cheap is to us cheap labor. We want more money but don't want to work to much for it, and since we want more money that drives up the cost of the products, forcing us to ship it over seas in order to make us happy with lower cost products. Yet we are mad at China and any other source of cheap labor cause we don't want to admit we did it to our selves . And the number one cause for all of this is that everyday everyone has it in some form LAZINESS.

you know what, huge number of people I know privately talking about buying RMB and selling US dollars very soon---before the end of this year, more and more information indicate RMB will double its value to US dollars.

Now, please times 2 (at least) when you calculate money that Chinese used for defense and divide 2 when you caluculate money that USA used for defense.

by the way, also good chance to earn some extra money for yourself at this time, it is once-a-life-time chance like stock market in 1999. sorry, off topic

$6000 SUV like Sherman says it will probably drive like it costs, just bacause something is cheap doesnt mean everyone will buy it, i would prefer a $26000 SUV because at least that way i would know that im buying good quality.


Now, please times 2 (at least) when you calculate money that Chinese used for defense and divide 2 when you caluculate money that USA used for defense.

Whats this about?

I think the real point was that they're still WORKING for American companies. They don't do highest level advanced stuff in India. They do that in America. If it's something they just need quantity.
I know they answer tech support stuff there as well. But there is a difference.
I think the stuff we were talking about was the most sophisticated, classified programming. That will be done in the US, especially if it's government related work. That's what I meant about all that programming. We were talking about the top level, classified stuff. How did you suddenly switch it over to stuff Microsoft makes??
Our basic civilian programs, yes. For the highest level stuff, no.
Okay you still haven't told me a top level Indian programming company.

I think most other people in the forum have different opinion with you. -------in fact, even your credit history evaluation software are made from India and your data are viewed and evaluated in India as well

did i say "tech support"? by the way, did you do the research as I told you ----very easy, just use google

here is one example:

http://www.forbes.com/associatedpres...ap1478291.html

by the way, many famous US software companies are found by Indian american or Chinese american, including CA (computer association), SAP, Peoplesoft...you just donot know it at all, workhard, man, try to learn something before you post your opinion.

say, 1 dollars used to worth 8.29 RMB, months later, it only worth 4.00RMB. What it means: if you go to internaional market, you used to buy 10 eggs , now you can only buy 5 eggs, Chinese just reverse it.
Soon, when enough people & coutries realize this, they begin to change USA dollars with RMB in huge number, US dollar will not beomce world-currency anymore. Since US government borrow so much money from other countries at this time (in US dollars), most countries will request rutern of the money immediatly cause they realize dollars are devaluating. When all the countries request returing of the money at the same time, US government will become bankrupt.

REMEMBER: US deficit is all-time high, never been such high!!!

For you life, if you still earn $5000 month and get paid by US dollars, you
will not get respected as before if you go to Japan or Asia anymore, caue they might just earn some money as they earn. In US domestic, you will quickly find every price is increasing dramatically, back to the eggs, you will find 10 eggs need 2 dollars instead of 1 dollar.

By then, the whole world currency price will finish the modification. US dollars lose the dominent position and so is the credibility of US government. If it happen furiously, it will end USA.
