    Good luck with that! It's hard to buy much of anything anymore that isn't Chinese.

    Probably most subassemblies in folks' computers were made in China, with some made in other parts of Asia (e.g. hard drive motors, which are only made in Thailand last I heard).

    Cities should not buy electric buses at all, IMO. E.G., buses made by US company Proterra - built in the LA area and South Carolina - have been sidelined in Philadelphia for being defective (though not incendiary, I think they just didn't have the promised range ... probably didn't do well in cold weather). One or more Proterra buses parked in a lot in the LA area did catch fire of its own accord.

    Populists' Big Guys vs. Little Guys rhetoric is emotive rationalization about who plunders and who is plundered.

    Look around your house ...

    Furniture, Appliances, Door Knobs, Cabinets, Beds, Carpets/Rugs, Kitchen accoutrements, Sheets, Towels, etc.

    Damned near EVERYTHING is from China.

    One of the more interesting developments thats taking place in Uk is 'the right to repair' - the govt is formulating a law that compels companies to sell spare parts for items and to make them repairable, like they used to be back in the day.

    It stems from Apple refusing to provide spare parts for iphones to private buyers. This was deemed unfair and anticompetitive in the courts
