Who has had a larger negative impact on the American Economy?
China! Everything is made thetr
Damn Dollar Stores with their poison products.
Both have imported a lot of goods but Japan is more open to American goods than China is
SKINNER - nope. China buys more American made goods than any country outside N. America. They buy almost as much as the UK and Germany combined, and over 1.5x that of Japan.
I don't know. It would be tough to quantify.
Japan. They are fantastic at producing affordable technology.

MJ - but China also buys more than twice what Japan does from the US. Not to mention the massive losses of American industry jobs and US firm takeovers by Japanese firms in the 80s. Japanese tourists were routinely laughed at for touring US firms and

Flourishing at the time. The whole "made in the USA" campaign began as a result of Japanese -not Chinese- activities as did "buy American."
Well, then I have to give this one too you Shazam.
JACK - that's not what I'm saying. Talk to your parents or grandparents about it. Ask what they remember. China is no doubt portrayed as a great threat now. I'm just asking you to question if that's accurately represented.
