Re: boycott of American products

After the incident with the Crimea and the threat of sanctions against Russia, increasingly there are calls countermeasures, namely to boycott products from the United States and Europe. But it is not only McDonald's. Imported goods "John Madeo JSA" is not found. Capitalists have long understood that it is cheaper to produce goods handed themselves as "natives" of their own raw materials and they also sell and convert into foreign currency gains and bring back - a great passive income from the colonies of the XIX century. The same goes for China, it's just a combination of Double-thread - produce elsewhere, sell to a third, and denyuzhku still have the right people.
You can answer, they say foreign companies are investing, creating jobs, the goods meet the demand of the population, and the shareholders are also compatriots. But everything is decided by money. Nobody would have nothing organized, if it was not beneficial to them personally, especially russophobes.
In short, I decided to find what the most popular brands in Russia belong to the "potential adversary».

And now the Russian beer market. Where are we without him. All the companies mentioned below belong to the countries - members of NATO (the list above).

Market IT. It is ruled by the United States almost exclusively.

Hyundai - South Korea
Relault - France
Kia - South Korea
Nissan - Japan

Toyota - Japan
Ford - USA

For more information:









By the way, Japan and South Korea have condemned Russia's annexation of Crimea. Political relations we are not the best. In the case of dust-these countries clearly took the side of the United States. At the very least, Japan certainly remember about the Kuril Islands. That, incidentally, is the largest company of Japan:


All I'm worn out. But the list is very long. There's still pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, clothes, household chemicals, hypermarkets like Auchan (France) and IKEA (Netherlands), hotels in the big cities and resorts, and much more.
Even if you take a "real" local companies, they may have such features:
 - Production is carried out on imported equipment from imported raw materials (animal husbandry - imported food, sausage - from imported frozen meat).
 - Owners, to put it mildly, not Russian.
 - The owners keep their money in foreign currency abroad (and then we hear about frozen accounts).
 - Holders of travel than on Lada, not a rest in Karelia, do not buy the house at the lake. In general, the behavior is no different from the foreigners.
This is what I? Boycott in our globalized world, a thing almost impossible, but if you really want to help the country - make the right decisions in key situations. This applies to everything from transfer grandmothers across the street to street fighting, from bribes to immigration. In the end, an adult differs from the child that an adult can calculate the long-term consequences of their actions.
All the world.
Especially for different sources from the mountain.
