That is true and I agree with you to a certain extend.
Almost everything we buy for our daily life today are made in China. This is because it's cheaper to manufacture in China than in developed countries. However, this trend is changing as many companies are moving into other developing countries that offer even cheaper labor as the Chinese standard of living rises. I know this guy who moved his sporting goods factory from Shenzhen to somewhere in Vietnam in order to stay competitive. But anyway, that's going off topic...
The point is, for consumers, there really isn't much choice when buying products based on where they were made. Unless a company produces some kind of specialized products, most would be made in China otherwise the company wouldn't be able to compete. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for, so it is indeed unrealistic to expect quality when you aren't willing to fork out the extra dollars. The problem is though, even if a consumer is willing to fork out a few dollars, they would be in the minority and therefore ignored and companies will still keep manufacturing their products in China in order to remain in the business.
