they are strictly looking at the dollars and cents, they may have money sense but no other fucking sense ... claiming fort saint john the best place to live in BC ?

If you move the scale to reduce the priority for home affordability Ft St John drops really quickly.

If they included the mud factor, it would be WAY down on the list.

“The second thing that happened, and this was a big game changer as well, was the 2000 opening of free trade with China. We documented that within a couple of years of that happening, the United States shut its last penicillin fermentation plant up in New York. And that was after Chinese companies dumped product on the U.S. and global markets at below market prices and drove everybody out — the U.S., the Europeans and even the Indian penicillin fermentation plants. Drove them out. And then they increased the price. This is the playbook of China.”

So that's how they got so rich.

How do you value/measure that editorial?

Do you use it to pay yourself on the back?

What mathematics were used to make the measurements?

That's not China's playbook that's just the playbook of free market capitalism.

wow....

“At dinner parties, when the aunties and uncles talked about the old days, they loved to compare the exact size and length of their parasites. Supposedly, these were dangling snakes that they had to pluck out from their assholes. … They could spend hours arguing over whose monster worm was scarier, which one was hairier, whose had a googly eye. … Of course, all the cousins had lost our appetites by now, and we stared at the foot-long slimy rice noodles, the caterpillar-like vermicelli coagulating in sludgy sauce with queasy, unspeakable horror.”
