Chinese luxury goods buyers are upset that their top end toilet seats aren’t manufactured in Japan reports the Wall Street Journal.
It turns out these technologically advanced toilet seats are largely made in China – like many other Japanese, and American, products.
Which creates a problem for those Chinese advocating a boycott of Japanese goods warns the China Youth Daily.
“Japanese goods have permeated every aspect of our lives. If you want to boycott everything, I’m afraid you’ll have to throw away your identification cards, cellphones, land-line phones, elevators, some of which have Japanese components.”
Such are the complexities of globalisation.
