What a ship. No wonder 'Made in China ' is displacing North American and Australian made goods big time.

This monster transports goods across the Pacific in about 5 days!!!

 

A recent documentary in late March on the History Channel noted that nearly

all of these containers are shipped back to China , EMPTY.. Yep, that's right. We send nothing back on most of these ships. What does that tell you about the current financial state of our country? Just keep buying those imported goods (mostly gadgets) until you run out of money. Then you may wonder what the cause of unemployment is in the U.S.A., Canada and Australia might be?
