This subject brought me some curiosity in other thread where people were discussing about importing cheap products from other countries like China to sell them in their countries. Do you care about the fact that you may be ruining your country economy and growing the other country economy with this and other similar business models? I think this is a good subject to discuss because it can be very contradictory. I can't take a solid position in this because in one side is you and your family, and in the other side is your loved country. Anyway, this is why in my particular case I m divided when it comes to this subject: I live in Portugal, and I think you have an idea what's happening here. Our economy is ruined, we are in the limbo as to ask for international investment fund help or not. I m a middle (low) class citizen, and I say middle low because it's what I feel when I see our government and the private sector sharks contributing to vanish the middle classes and strengthen the distance between the rich people and poor people. In fact I think it's better to be poor and benefit from subsidies, than to be a middle class worker, work more, pay more taxes and earn a similar amount. As much as you want to change your life in here you can't. You know you can't count with your government to start a project you ever dreamed. The small amount of money you make is barely enough to pay your bills, so you will never be able to save to invest in other things. But this is exactly what rich people and the government wants. They want to control and own your ass, giving you as little to live your life, pay your bills (their income) and not much more. So why should one care about is country economy, when your own government doesn't give a fu** about your life? How is it for you? Would you do everything you have to do to support your family, even if that would ruin your country?
