I blogged earlier about problems blamed on impurities in Chinese-made plaster board. Tests by the Environmental Protection Agency test results released today confirm those suspicions. Sulphur compounds are there. Also strontium and other unwanted impurities.
The ironies here are immense. In political theory a communist country, say China, is supposed to have strong governmental controls and centralized authority. Yet their industrial practices speak of total deregulation and laissez-faire. Whatever the market will bear, or tolerate. Isn't life just one funny thing after another?
