Maybe they could sell expensive coffee mugs or something?
Look at Disney.
Just have to add something here. It's crazy when people use "Chinese" to imply low-quality products, especially regarding electronics. The fact is, China is the worldwide center of excellence for electronics manufacturing. If you missed it, see the NY Times' article, How the U.S. Lost Out on iPhone Work. Yes there are low-quality counterfeit products to be had from China. It's a big country. We shouldn't tar the whole country's industry on the basis of the bad actors.
"Chinese clone" is more of a statement about lax adherence to intellectual property law (and custom) than a statement about quality...
I also sell Arduino boards and shields manufactured in China , but I have over 20 years EXP. in manufacturing and QA, i'm also active in supporting code/libraries.
Most of the factories that do sell high quality products, do need to be told EXACTLY what to do.If you forget to tell them 'only drill this hole 1.5mm deep' and just say drill a hole in A for screw B, they'll drill all the way down, for example.They need exact specs, exact instructions,
