Here's a question.... should china shut off exports to the usa, does that mean american owned companies who produce items in china can't get their product back to the usa?

I'm sure that like every other American i'm quite ignorant to the actual quantity of goods that are imported from china. But it does seem to me that they are typically useless consumer goods and food items. But even the food items aren't the staples that we would depend on to feed ourselves.

I know that in my industry made in China is a bad thing, but with Mr Chow's kids only being paid $0.15 a day to manufacture all of it, price becomes king. If the price advantage was only marginal, our industry would really push the buy American mantra.
