Coal for Newcastle

According to news reports, China wants to begin the aggressive exportation of cheap, “low quality” Geely and Maple automobiles into Russia over a five-year period. Seriously, does Russia need more cheap cars? Aren’t millions of Ladas and Zhigulis bad enough? (I hope, for the sake of law and order in the already lawless and disorderly Russia, that Geely doesn’t try to produce police cars, too…)

The report notes that they also want to enter the American market, among others. Let’s see; cheap, Chinese cars, broad global reach… Magic 8-Ball, is Wal-Mart going to become a car dealer, too? What’s that? “All signs point to yes?” Bugger.
