Business is slow thanks to coronavirus. So here is Some Coronavirus related business.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Tell them that we hope they can afford to run their economy on selling 50 cent flip flops to Cambodia because everything else is going to be made somewhere else.
I wouldn't count on it. To those who have the goods made, money rules all. If the American people gave a shit, they would have supported their own country all along.

FFS! Let's hope some things change during this crisis. Including changed attitudes about greed. ^^^
Again, sadly, I wouldn't count on it. All that the aggressive people care about is money and greed, and the general public doesn't care enough to stop them, or even just stop supporting them.
Well now Americans will get their chance. Your view of human nature is shaped by your own worldview, me, im a fucking Yank and China just fucked with us. Time to fucking party on some Commies, lets see if they can keep up because we can make it better and we can even farm out factories to decent and quiet places like Cambodia and Moldova. Ooooh rah. Thats my worldview and there are a lot of us. Im looking at Made ins.....Hope you are washing your hands and staying healthy.

Glorified middle man and a reason why everything is over priced. That isn’t a business. It’s a racket.

China is one step away from running Cambodia. Even if current Chinese goods are made here, I'm sure all of the materials will still come from China. So then we're just paying a slight mark-up to have things assembled in Cambodia? I bet it would be the same story with a lot of Southeast Asian countries. It won't be quite that easy. Maybe some places in Africa could offer the cheap labor that the American corporations demand for record yearly profit growth? Just to clarify, I Really hope there is a change. This U.S.-Chinese system has been broken for decades. I just don't think much will change.

I hope the same for you.
Do you think the parents of baby boomers whined so much when the boomers started changing society? And yet the whiney ones like to call young people "snowflakes." Hmm...
