Am tired of knowing what I know (that almost every single thing we buy here in America comes from there and I know several gazillionaire Chinese kids who literally wear $2000 tennis shoes to school, drive Bentleys and buy homes in Bel Air) and hearing how the Chinese economy is “in big trouble…”
Help me out here.
Also, the tariffs have to hurt us; how do you raise prices on China, knowing they have to raise OUR prices in their own defense, and not cause us problems at all the cheap-crap Chinese-made big box stores most of you shop in? (I don’t).
Please help me out: HOW IS CHINA IN SUCH BAD SHAPE?
My Chinese student arrives tonight … Hopefully, she will stay all year$$$. She is the same one I had last Fall, until my (amazing) German boy arrived in January and stayed through June. I feel a bit funny about the Chinese students these days, you hear of their ‘moving in,’ stealing information, infiltrating in sheer numbers, outdoing our kids in school*……..If she wasn’t as (let me say for kindness here) ‘ungifted in intelligence’ as a box of bricks, I’d honestly think twice of having her here!
Also, don’t believe ALL Chinese kids are sharper than ours, as we’re led to believe. They pay our kids to take tests, to write their papers…even at the private high school I’m associated with, from what I heard last week! And A LOT in our colleges and universities pay for the same ‘benefits’!! NOT SAYING THE CHINESE AREN’T VERY SMART AS A WHOLE, but …….let’s say they’re not AS ahead of us as people think.
