The Non Required

We’re all “Made in China”

I think degrees are useful in specifically one way: they broaden areas of interest and they make it easier to find a job. They are not prerequisites to excellent performance and in no way I think a school name conveys how brilliant you are. Take Bush, he attended Yale and Harvard…take Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Richard Branson or the current malagasy president, none of them attended college…

A product labelled “Made in China” is often associated to low-cost and low-quality. According to the World Luxury Association, 60 % of the world’s luxury brand will have their products made there by 2009 and many makers of international brand-name products have been quite satisfied with Chinese firms’ quality of production, reliability and management. So you see, it’s not because you are labelled “Made in China” that you are mediocre and cheap. It’s just that shifting the consumer’s perception from the existing substandard quality to highly desirable takes time.

Some will say they are “Made in Prada”, but I think we all are “Made in China”.
