It's a good question. I've decided that I want to boycott more than just the Olympic games, but, damn, LOTS of stuff comes from China. It's worrisome for me as an American....we are losing our manufacturing base. How can a country be strong economically without it?
Oh, yeah, stocks, mergers, derivatives, etc....non-tangibles. That's a sturdy basis for an economy.
This BBC News article is a good overview of the challenge of boycotting Chinese products. Electronics is particularly problematic.
