99 percent of Chinese exports safe

This according to Chinese Commerce Minister Bo Xilai, as reported in the FT. This makes some sense, when you keep in mind that 1 percent of all Chinese exports these days are for the new Mattel Swishy Switchblade (TM) Vodka Bottle Opener and Child Home Defense Kit (now with more lead flavor!) What can I say. It's not China's fault that kids thing this is the hottest thing since the Bat Masterson Derringer Belt Gun.

Risk, of course, is such a fun topic. Basically, Minister Bo is reassuring us that 99 out of every 100 Chinese products we have in our house or that we use are safe. Personally, I'm completely reassured. After all, it's not like we use a lot of Chinese-made goods every day, is it?
