Description: An insider reveals what can-and does-go wrong when companies shift production to ChinaNow updated with the latest developments and current events, Poorly Made in China chronicles the experiences of an American working for a U.S. outsourcing firm in Chinese manufacturing, and highlights the disturbing and dangerous practice known as "quality fade"-the deliberate and secretive habit of widening profit margins through a reduction in the quality of materials over time. The author argues that U.S. importers don't stand a chance against factory owners in China who have little to lose by placing American health and safety at risk. A well-written and impassioned narrative, Poorly Made in China is one insider's account of the quality-fade tactics used by China in seven industries, including health and beauty care, diamonds, and construction. Poorly Made in China will sound an alarm that all of America should heed.
