Lets hope that consumer demand drives quality control for inferior products made elsewhere.

They say history repeats itself. It was not all that long ago that Japanese vehicles were labeled as cheap and inferior. The manufacturers recognized that this was a major barrier to gaining and maintaing market share, so they upped the ante. Before long the big 3 were scrambling to match and meet the build quality of imports.

Advertising changes perception... for instance the term "initial quality" is a term commonly used by JD Power.
Reliability over the long term and repairability are just no longer a factor.

How many thousands of times in how many thousands of products has price competition sparked a "race to the bottom" in terms of quality, often driving quality products completely off the market...
Bought a shirt, socks or a pair of shoes lately? Heck shoes don't even come in defined widths anymore.
Our houses and sheds are bursting at the seams with useless junk....
