I know a thing or two about BG'ing, and a RRG published German made euro has twice the quality of any chinese product, for half the cost, and the workers are.making 10x more pay at least.
Sources? Or are you just making shit up as usual?

I love this "source or it's not true" mentality the internet has polluted people with. I made an exception here to make an example out of you, but in an argument it's the dissenter who bears the burden of looking up the facts. *I* already did before I opened my proverbial mouth. It is not my job to educate you, thankfully.
As the sample above shows, games made in the US and Germany tend to cost less or the same as those made in China, yet the production costs to the publishers are significantly higher, and the components are almost always cheap cardboard, often in high gloss finishes to hide the low grade. When meeple are present, they are often substandard wood, or plastic. The aforementioned wood often contains mold. http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/527004/mold-on-my-pieces
Z-Man, GMT, AEG, and many other predominantly produce in China. I suspect this is because the profit margin is significantly higher, as illustrated above. The wages are lower, the components cheaper, the MSRP higher or the same.
So next time you want to troll just for the sake of trolling, make sure your target doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about.
