In this landmark work of investigative reporting, former "Financial Times" correspondent Alexandra Harney uncovers a story of immense significance to us all: how China's factory economy gains a competitive edge by selling out its workers, environment, and future. Harney's firsthand reporting brings us face-to-face with a world in which intense pricing pressure from Western companies combines with ubiquitous corruption and a lack of transparency to exact a staggering toll in human misery and envionmental damage. This eye-opening expose offers, for the first time, an intimate look at the defining business story of our time.

    看完沃爾瑪效應後
    對低價背後的影響極具有興趣
    所以就閱讀這一本書

    當幾乎所有東西都是made in China時
    這本書引領我進入另一個面向(中國)
    來看低價背後的效應

    這本書是我在2009年的時候購買,最近終於有時間把它讀完。在我1999年第一次與親戚去美國的時候,我發現大部分的產品產地標籤都有made in china的標示。過了一兩年當我畢業展選擇家具產品的時候,記得科上某位老師不以為然的告訴我們,台灣的家具產業都搬到大陸。時至今日,常在報紙新聞著墨於台灣傳統產業的外移中國與本地的沒落、高雄港貨櫃吞吐量年年下降。至去年跌至10名外。那時候唯一的概念只有中國擁有廣大廉價的勞工以及龐大的內需市場。對台灣早期製造加工業運作以及發展一無所知。在我讀完這本之後,我才 ...(continue)

    敘述很多中國內地人職場上法律問題,小員工碰上重大傷害無門提告,與中國內地人工業對中國人民的身體健康傷害,多年來的工廠不為人知的內幕,可以當作小說閱讀。
