FOR years I have been operating my own personal boycott of anything Made In China. It is harder than you might think.

It has first amused and then exasperated my family. I am old enough to remember Tiananmen Square. Now it is the Uighur people who are being controlled.

Next time you shop online, you might read the label. Those goods may be cheap, but someone else could be paying the real price.
