The discontent of short-term thinking of manufacture outsourcing part two


“A shoemaker is a shoemaker when he gives away his knowledge, he is no longer a shoemaker. he is a teacher.” Quotes Kenneth L


The story could end here in the mid-1980s. If not, the president and Chief executive officer Robert D. Haas of Levi Strauss took the company of the stock market in 1985 and into a private (A brand with a cause Levi Strauss Co Robert D. Haas achievements of long-term thinking.) The reality when the turn-over goes from high to low, it weakens the vulnerabilities of shareholder power to withstand buy-up. Haas did his homework well and from the heritage of the family. The original jeans brand with 160 years of experience knew something that only can be understood by its history, and competitors come and goes. The difference between the brands right too exist the cause. A Brand with a reason or the story’s equity is known as the brand equity and gain value over time. A brand evolves and follows long-term philosophy paths. It is a bitter pill for market-analysts, economists or shareholders view. Part one A brand with a cause Levi Strauss Co Robert D.

When the structures become matures, the escape route of growth happens by expanding territories, buy-up, or increased power to spend more. The relationship between the advantage of any market the four factors, price, place, product and promotion vanishing and the corporations start looking for novel ways to increase profit and the eternal problem of a sky without limits: The capitalist ability to oversee a factor, the limit of a balance sheet. The very essence to realise the debt-side = assets-side. It is not understood by a creative like myself and therefore at school disliked, the answer requires = sign otherwise not accepted by the teachers.

The surplus-value in moments of crisis

Karl Marx’s accepted David Ricardo, the classical economist theory of surplus-value by quantification of labour. However, Marx developed the fullest analysis of surplus population in his third volume of capital. He argues that there is a structural relationship between the capital’s moments of crisis, debt creation, and the periodic devaluation of human life. Money withdraws from the present investment relocate into the future. He identifies two primary tendencies at work here. On the one hand, there is the process of temporal revaluation, the movement by which capital withdraws from investment in the present and relocates in the futuristic realms of financial means. ) Marx’s attention throughout the Grundrisse),
The prophetic moment of capitalist restructuring is the kind of utopia celebrated in neoliberal theories of growth. Human life, the commodity in the outsourcing of manufacturing, life reduced to the cost of reproduction. The idea of capitalist transformation points to the dual nature of the debt relation: where capitalism promises one hand, it devalues on the other.

The race to cost-cutting at the bottom of the pyramid

Besides shipping, the Textile Industry was at the forefront, killing the European and weakened the American. It spread like a bushfire across all industries.

The shipping yards in Liverpool, Manchester and South to the city of Bilbao bankrupted. Left, the endless halls of steel and manufactured landscapes, without any working, all dead. Other industry followed, ending with the banning of Huwai technology advancement. Outsourcing came with the industrial revolution and the invention of railroads and the telegraph. However, globalisation of trade and transportation depended on the same tradeable commodities. The world is a marketplace with more than 70.000 global corporations, and they fight over the same natural resources, markets and consumers.

A dynasty with great wall’s China

China waited passionately for an opportunity to learn the western culture. The old Dynasty of China lacked behind as a traditional producer of sought after products across the world such as silk, porcelain and gun powder. Once, they protected a dynasty with a wall 5000 kilometres long fence. The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications built early as the 7th century BC across the historical line of ancient Chinese states and the Imperial of China as protection against nomadic groups from the Eurasian steppe. The Ming dynasty built the most well-known sections between 1360-1650. The defence was the primary purpose contain building the wall. However, other purposes included border control, goods transport imposition duties on goods along the silk road, immigration and emigration.

The opium wars and the British Navy superior technologically advanced ships and weapons

Before the first opium war, British ships appear sporadically around the coasts of China from 1635 on. The first opium war ended in 1842 with the British Navy defeated the Chinese using technologically superior ships and weapons. Afterwards, the Chinese took the guns in the fields apart and learned how they worked and reproduced them. China worked hard to get a grip and collected information such as western encyclopedias to understand. They were finding our culture difficult understanding compared with their way.

The colonisation of the world pirates hired to sink the enemies ships. The Spanish Armada and the English Empire conquered and divided the world into colonies. Since they both could not go to war against each other, pirates hired to sink the enemies ships; on both sides, pirates seen as the enemy and, if taken, hanged. However, if succeeded, rewarded heavily from the opposite side. If they started a war, the other nations such as Portugal, Italy and the Dutch would seize their part. The new colonies increased trade across.

Sweatshops history

The earliest sweatshop critics found in the 19th-century, abolitionist movement; Originally the term, used in coalesced opposition to chattel slavery. Most abolitionists saw similarities between slavery and sweatshop work. Slavery outlawed in Industrial countries between 1794 (in France) and 1865 (in the United States); later, broadening of anti-slavery included other forms of unethical labour treatment such as sweatshops with Factory Act 1833 in the UK. The working conditions in the textile industry focused on people such as Friedrich Engels. His book The Condition of the Working Class, published in 1845, would inspire the Marxist movement named for his collaborator, Karl Marx. Outsourcing of textile manufacturing during the 1990s The first significant brands Nike and Gap started outsourcing the production to minimise production costs and maximise profit. Particularly valuable since fashion sneakers, tees, and sweats production is labour intensive with a low grade of technical skills easily adaptable. Manufacturing of sneakers and sweats to low-cost labour countries such as China and south-east Asia. The contractors selected with a cost-cutting mission.

The race to cut the cost took pandemic-size as outsourcing of manufacturing aimed at lowering production cost. With undoubtedly beneficial contracts for the buyer starts a raw competition among apparel manufacturers to fight for work. Simultaneously officials and the textile production in less-developed country’s contributed with low-cost labour and unethical decisions. Avoid paying taxes since production moved into toll-free zones, forcing working families to live under miserable conditions, breathes seat-shops and sneakers twenty-four seven. Salary payments low as one US dollar per day is the results of outsourcing. It gave corporations such as Nike and Gap an incredible advantage in the marketplace vs its competitors.

Sweatshop or sweat factory is a negative term for any dangerous working environment and unacceptably low wages. Closely related to child labour, share labour issues such as long work hours, no overtime and usually live together with other workers near the factory. Sweatshops are not safe, hazardous chemicals, materials and situations. It hardly inspected or without safety regulations. People who believe that such a working environment or sweatshops do good for the poorest since it follows the same development historically in the West are not only blind and not humans. Seriously need to rethink their values or better work in one.

How outsourcing made a copy and past tool for manufacture products for a home market with affordable prices

China seized a golden opportunity. With the outsourcing of production, brands looking for cheap labour in the 70s, the Chinese took a golden opportunity. The West gave them the learning to manufacture products. Like shoemaker teaching others in shoemaking becomes the teacher. He is no longer without competitors. The short term thinking of corporations cost-cutting in production is the most critical factor that China is the new empire and why the US desperately thought the UN are willing to create economic chaos in the age of pandemical proportions.

It will seek sanctions upon China from the international communities to blame China as responsible for the outbreaks and, at the same time, reduce the cost of the most impoverished mail population in debt, let the capitalist keep their fortunes to start over again. China is the new powerhouse, and soon the US dollar replaced by the currency of the Chinas yuan (China offshore currency). It weakens the US arsenal of using the dollar for debt manufacturing and access to natural resources. The dilemma of short-term thinking result; The end of the world structure and an empire lost.

Figures and facts China trade and the US
  • China, the worlds manufacturing powerhouse
    • The UN data shows China is the world’s manufacturing powerhouse, followed by the United States and Japan. According to data published by the United Nations Statistics Division, China accounted for 28.4 per cent of the global manufacturing output in 2018. That puts the country more than 10 per cent ahead of the United States.
  • China surpasses the US as the worlds largest consumer market.
  • According to the newspaper Chinadaily, the consumer market expected to reach the US as the world’s largest consumer market this year or next year, said Shanghai Securities News, citing experts on Friday. In November, the country’s retail sales of consumer goods reached 3.81 trillion yuan (€445.19 billion), realising an 8 per cent increase for the first time since July and a pace of growth rising 0.8 percentage points from October.

American Corporations made China great again.

The bigger picture of the short-term thinking of global corporations hunts for the cost-cutting ending of the old empire and birth of a new the Chinese, with one-fifth of the world population, soon largest economy west little understood, of the total ignorance performed. Nobody saw outsourcing as a threat to the US empire; the blindness of greed and populistic decisions is why trying to blame China next. Except for speeches and visits in 1972 and 1975, President Ford visited China for a summit with PRC leaders, including Mao Zedong. “Gerald Ford wrote: “If she manages to achieve as she aspires, China in the next half-century can emerge as a self-sufficient power of a billion people. This last impression – of the reality of China’s colossal potential – is perhaps the most vivid of our journey“. American Corporations on their way to paving markets, outsourcing to and with promises from the Chinese free trade agreements and entering into the one billion markets.

Last year, Newsweek ran a cover story titled “How America’s Biggest Companies Made China Great Again.” is partly right. The first biggest mistake let corporations outsource production. Secondly, China took the opportunities by playing on the American naivety would also any other competitor did. It was by giving Chinas the possibilities to become a shoemaker, became the teacher. The Chinese government increasingly aggressive aim to become the world-leading economy is causing angst and hostility among the American political system. Who blame everything on Chinas Communist Party. The childish approach US naive on free trade agreements, China industrial espionage and being fair. Besides, thinking it would lead to a democratic China and change ideology sounds more like a spoilt child excuse than reality. It is the capitalist blindness that believes in eternal economic growth and promises overcome all limits. Remember, the still fertile previously written “The idea of capitalist transformation points to the dual nature of the debt relation: where capitalism promises one hand, it devalues on the other“. Karl Marx.

The global pandemic crisis blames China is easy

China growth worries people in the administration, such as the speech of Attorney General Barr’s Remarks on China Policy at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum on July 17, 2020 “China’s dominance of the world market for medical goods goes beyond masks and gowns. It has become the United States’ largest supplier of medical devices. while at the same time discriminating against American medical companies in China” Furthermore, speeches of the US Secretary indicate where the train is heading. The willingness to play the game while letting the global economy and human misery of the poor is a trade war.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a landmark speech on July 23 titled ‘Communist China and the free world’s future’. He made it plain that China was now America’s primary national security threat. The central theme of the Chinese Communist Party’s—not the Chinese people’s—designs for global hegemony. The very issues of the Corona outbreak is a part of the strategy. The joint statement of Australia-US Ministerial Consultation (AUSMIN) 2020: discussed the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and foster a post-COVID-19 world. The World Health Assembly resolution on identifying the zoonotic origin of the virus and evaluating the World Health Organization-coordinated international health response.

They have reaffirmed commitment to facilitating the timely and broad deployment of affordable, safe, and effective COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics, including to support response in the Indo-Pacific region. Furthermore stated in the document, “The United States and Australia expressed deep concern about the People’s Republic of China (PRC) government’s efforts to undermine the “One Country, Two Systems” framework and to erode Hong Kong’s autonomy and freedoms in violation of its obligations under the Sino-British Joint Declaration
