Stunned to see “Made in Holland”

Enjoying a lazy day at the British seaside, gazing about when my eyes experienced something unique, sighting a label on a product that was not “Made in China”. At first I felt celebratory, then I realized my instinct was xenophobic somewhat – it told me this is good. Then there were my thoughts of an investment banker telling me last week they’re going short on China – the only confidence was in a bubble. With bitter news growling about slumps in manufacturing, values crashing in realty, the dollar sliding and jobs grinding to halt, please China, stay strong, we need you, let your “Made in China” labels reign. I promise not to think like that again. And please keep buying our debt.
