    Oh sure legal if you don't mind the fact China violates labor standards and human right laws but don't let that stand in the way of cheap stuff.

    Try this for starters:

    A History of Japanese Trade and Industry Policy - Mikio Sumiya - Google Books
    Since you've read the book, it should be easy to point out one or two Japanese companies which have made a successful business model of predatory pricing.

    LOL...Union wages, which are higher than minimum wages, are "protected" by minimum wages? How so? If a minimum wage is raised, that puts upward pressure on all wages.

    What are you talking about, "It was maybe worth $750 in hindsight"? Are you complaining about Moore's Law?

    Toyota, albeit with Japanese government subsidies and capitalization at near zero percent, comes immediately to mind. Thus it's not predatory, per se, since it was help in entering a market, and not intended to put competitors out of business in pursuit of a monopoly.

    So, none in fact.

    PS...the article substantiated the evidence contained within it.

    You on the other hand continually fail to substantiate ANYTHING you post.
    Why are you complaining about a trade deficit? What's the specific problem that's bothering you?
