Are the Chinese or Americans to blame on hazardous products from China?
I was thinking about this a while ago. The big American companies go to China becuase it is cheaper for them and they can make more money and exploit the Chinese workers. Is it the Chinese workers fault that they put lead paint on the toys? They were doing their job and using the supplies given to them. Who's to blame on this subject?

The Chinese government should also make sure that the quality of the products they sell for a country meets that county's quality control standards. The actual workers... More

They are both to blame. See what happens when we outsource jobs? It shocks me to see the honor that the Chinese actually have though. I can't believe that Chinese guy killed himself over the toy scandal. I know a few American businessmen who should follow suit...

Companies that made the purchase in manufacturing products imported into the US should be to blame.
