Good article from the WSJ that talks about subcontracted outsourcing, particularly in Bangladesh. Of note, it seems that some Chinese companies will subcontract to Bangladesh. I'm personally uncomfortable with 99% of Chinese-made goods (for ethical and quality-related reasons) and even more concerned with the Bangladeshi garment industry. While many Chinese factories are known to be harsh and largely immoral by western standards, these Bangladeshi factories really just seem like death traps. Food for thought... N.B. the article may be behind a paywall for some.
