Are we sure we want China to make safe products?

I heard CNBC stock market analyst Erin Burnett make one ofthe most remarkable statements I’ve heard in quite a while. Click on What’s wrong with the stock market?. After the commercial ends enlarge the video and run the indicator at the bottom over to maybe 1/2" past the two vertical marks in the center circle.

What she said was that maybe we shouldn’t push China too hard to make safe products. If they do their their production costs will go up and prices at Wal-Mart will rise.

I’m still shaking my head.
