Is It Too Late for Governor Bredesen's China Office to Score Us Some of That Corrosive Chinese Drywall?
Phil Bredesen's 2007 opening of the Tennessee China Development Center may have been just behind the building supply curve that brought noxious and corrosive Chinese drywall to housing starts from Louisiana to Florida from 2003 to 2007. I'm sure there are other toxic products that the Chinese (or is that the Germans?) could still bring us through the Governor's trade initiative. But as it stands homes and families elsewhere are being destroyed by sulphur-laden "free"-trade drywall. Just another "benefit" brought home to you by the untrammelled global economy.
