And productivity has nothing to do with it, china sell its things cheaper than costs them to produce, it s not dumping anymore, it s hysteria.
Ways of living? Conditions of living?

Well, let me just say that there is certain arrogance and sense of entitlement that I strongly disagree of. What about ways of living if you can't afford it? Does the logic that "I am accustomed to live in leisure and luxury so I must be payed more" make any sense at all? In such global economy, nobody is exempt from the basic rules: that if you can't stay competitive, you go bankrupt. Simple as that.

Add China to that list.
