The only way to fix our economy -

STOP BUYING EVERYTHING MADE IN CHINA !!!

There are 40% more billionaires in China since last year. That's YOUR money. Stop sending equipment to China. Stop importing from CHINA. Boycott companies that deal mainly with CHINA.

They have a poor record of human rights, no environmental laws.

Protect your lifestyle – and your future. They are spending billions in army - they have the most IT nerds. They will take over the world if it continues like this. They own the most mines in Africa and South America. Look at history, their mentality to rule the world is in their blood.

They only know how to work, they have no imagination, vision or creativity. They will copy or steal anything. Look for industrial spies - they steal the "Know How: and then they start producing, selling to you for 1/2 of the price in exchange of poor quality, ending up buying that product again and again, ensuring that they keep making money.

WAKE UP AMERICA !!! Get off your fat lazy ass and DO something or you'll end up working on rice fields for CHINEEZE lords!!!!

Why do we buy German-made cars? That won't help our economy. We should have bought Cadillac CTS instead of BMWs!

I would rather scissor my sick off then buy a gm product. Call me an asshole but i never did believe in that whole too big too fail thing. I just love how GM went and took all that money frpm the government when they failed and then turned around and tried to sell them the Chevy Volt. I also remember the CEO calling for a higher tax on fuel so people would buy more economic cars like the Volt.

Besides you could go buy an X3 its made here in the states. Considering even the big three don't have everything made here anymore.

The bottom line is you have to do a little research as to where the car is being manufactured. I drove a 370z which I believe had more parts manufactured in the states than a Camaro does.

Meh.. whatever. Drive what you like.

+1....but I wouldn't say no to a ZR1 if it was given to me

and the Chevy Cruze gets nearly the same mileage as the volt for $20,000 less

Sounds just like the good ol U S of A from past, better years. We made all kinds of stuff, wanted to police the world, imported the smartest minds and built the word IT.

China, look out, soon your financiers will ruin your country with their greed.

hello manufacting labor union......maybe if we didn't have to pay GM employees $30/hr to tighten a bolt on a door the prices would be more beneficial to us.

labor unions and so called "workers rights" at their best.

I would have to agree to the original post - We are so in debt with China it is ridiculous and the more we keep "buying" from China, the more we bury ourselves in this problemm the worse our potential situation could become if China decides to take over the US - and they could probably do it.

Doesn't get any better than this
China lends the US money , and they get interest
US takes this money and spends it on Chinese products

Us ends up with tons of debt
Chinese is stockpiling all this money

What do you do for a living and how much do you get paid for doing it?

That does not matter. No matter what I do and how much I get paid I understand the wastefulness of collective bargaining in most circumstances and what it does to companies and the products they make. I directly deal with my employer. I am employee who gives my superiors a reason to keep me around. I believe in the new social contract that employment must be mutual beneficial for both parties, or else i will find another job, or they will find another employee who can do my job better, and all the power to them, who am I to hold the company back from correctly meeting the demands of all shareholders?
