Re: This is a poliitical discussion...
ONLY IN THE USA, the rest of the world it is economic! buying direct is cheaper, buying from the US is ridiculously expensive, and the US gave up manufacturing because it was cheaper to do it in CHINA, so bigger profit for the US companies!!
I'm surprised this thread hasn't been frozen.
Though I seldom comment, I do like the ability so I'll leave it at that. Lonnie
You can claim that it reduces an advantage China has - but it will not influence anything else. Why should consumers, which are now used to buy everywhere in the world (not just in China!), stop buying stuff in China? Which is likely still cheaper for Chinese-made articles?
Others had claimed here, that it would help small US business or small US dealers - again unlikely, because the direct import will be still cheaper and the US shipping rates for exports are still extreme.
Do you have a reference for your claim that USPS is the most automated mailing service world-wide? Difficult to believe - especially, because its costs are high, you even claim that it has problems to get enough investments and a lot of the US infrastructure is really oldfashioned and run down.
