Happy Holidays Moisheh,
Yes, I agree with you. I think you hit the biggest part on the head though and it has nothing to do with the "Shadow" It has everything to do with the "Greed Factor". When will they learn (both here and NOB) that 100% of nothing (when the customer walks away because of that greed factor and a potential sale is lost) is nothing! Zero, "0", "Nada" ?!
Everyone in their right mind would walk away . . .. .and should. Maybe someday they (the greedy ones) will get the message! No one, including yours truly, is against someone making a legitimate profit. I think most people understand, or should anyway, that in any country imported goods are going to be more expensive to an extent. When you have American companies sending materials here for goods that are also made here in México and in the USA and the product here is inferior that is Greedy management on the behalf of the American companies that are screwing the Mexican consumer, and that makes me angry. Zip Lock Bags for example made in the USA are a pretty good product, but made here in Mexico they are leaky and do not seal correctly. I have no doubt in my mind that when an American company opens a MFG plant here they send their old used machinery to the Mexican plant and buy new for themselves i the USA not only saving the cost of new machinery in Mexico but also using that machinery both new in the USA plant and the old sent to Mexico as tax deductions . . . . . again leaving the Mexican consumer screwed for value.
I admire that Julian Assange character not for the subject matter of leaking country security information but especially for the upcoming Bank of America info that is soon to hit the air as well as other large companies. I say sentence him to life of finding the true crap that private companies are doing to use and abuse the consumer. These are the culprits that have screwed our economy, again, corporate greed. Let him loose on American political fraud and make that public sure but not military or Embassy related material unless and only unless it involves factual corruption.
I would love to see large group of successful ex pats start an organization here to assist the honest Mexican entrepreneur to start true Mexican manufacturing companies and other businesses that would in a short time would make a big economic impact, . . . . . but I guess I am dreaming again. That's one of my New Year's Hopes. Aside from that it sure is good to be home again with my family in Mexico.
