  7. 7. Can anything stop the Chinese export machine? In August the mainland's trade surplus hit $18.8 billion -- the fourth straight month with a record-setting gap. For the year to date, the surplus stands at $94.7 billion, 57% ahead of a year ago. Although China's imports jumped to a record $72 billion, exports surged nearly a third to -- yes, another record -- $90.8 billion. And much of that gap can be attributed to the vast quantities of goods shipped to eager American consumers. For the year, China's exports to the U.S. look set to approach $300 billion, up from $243 billion in 2005. Just what are Americans buying? Numbers won't be available until 2007, but it's a safe bet that gizmos such as TVs and iPods were popular. U.S. Commerce Dept. data show that electronic gear was the largest category of imports from China last year. That's a big change from a decade ago, when low-tech manufactured goods dominated. Below, the true scope of America's imports from China. Trade with China From Forbes magazine in 2006

  16. 17. Labor Production Costs
  17. 18. GAP Inc. <ul><li>Why don’t you pay factory workers more? Workers’ wages are determined by law and the factory that employs them. As one of many customers of a factory, we negotiate prices for finished products. However, our Code of Vendor Conduct clearly requires that factories pay workers the local legal minimum, or prevailing industry wage, whichever is higher. We actively monitor payment of wages to ensure that workers are consistently being paid the wages they are entitled to for the hours they’ve worked, including overtime. In instances where we've discovered non-compliance, we have forced payment of back wages and required factories to improve record keeping. To earn and keep our business, factories must compensate workers appropriately for all hours worked. </li></ul>
