But between the Chinese industrialists schlepping their low grade raw materials off on us

The raw materials are okay, the technology and the production process suck. One bolt made of Chinesium, takes the same resources and anergy to be made as a real one. It's a waste!

Thats why whenever is possible I buy only US made stuff. From my dishwasher to my bike and car all are US made. Unfortunately, with some goods like your chair you don't have a choice these days. You can buy a really expensive one, but there is no guarantee it will be better. My very expensive chair gave up after a year and the cheap one is still around.
