    Asia's continued economic growth is partially based on over consumption by the West. If Asian exports continue to slow down, what economic scenarios do you believe may unfold.

    RE: Asia's continued economic growth is partially based on over consumption by the West. If Asian exports continue to slow down, what economic scenarios do you believe may unfold.

    Response:

    It is true that the growth Asia experiences today can be connected to the over consumption of the West. Just as the explosion in growth can be linked to a variety of factors in the West, the slowing also has to do with certain Western factors. Western consumers are becoming more conscious and are making different purchasing decisions than they did in the past 30 years. 'Made in America' means something again. Source of materials and manufacturing standards are important and scrutinized. Modern political situations have created choice for consumers and a sense of guilt in regards to products that have suspect origins. Sanctions and the theater of war interrupt supply chains. Yet e-commerce booms and globalization has taken its strongest hold ever.

    We see everyone with everything everywhere - Michael Jackson t-shirts in the Amazon are old hat - now we see Iphones everywhere! I believe that slow downs in exports will lead to a new wave of economic scenarios that the world is ill prepared for. Costs of goods will fluctuate, quality will plummet, and producers will make even more money than ever!
