    Anti-Dumping..... If The Chinese Were Dumping These Products Like Amazon Is...

    It's time to add 2+2 and get a sum of 4. There is much more at stake than the price of a BKS NOOK.
    Yes Amazon is in my opinion now leaving the station on the official train called " ANTI-COMPETITIVE DUMPING".

    Amazon is not competing with only one company that is producing one item and that is the only competing employer of many people nor even simply just competing in an electronics segment. Amazon in this way affects related electronic media that is used with these products.

    But even further, Amazon wants their internet shopping service to be accessed by everyone from anywhere at anytime. Amazon wants to own shopping online and off of the net where you may shop now. Just ask Target, there former working partner. Just ask Best Buy how it feels to be known as Amazon's Show Room.

    Amazon's " ANTI-COMPETITIVE DUMPING" is as it was intended to be, cutting into the very base the profit and loss statements of a vast number of large, medium and small retail business'. That base being the business traffic that allows them to continue to exist at all and continue to be employers.

    And in the end what is gained by the consumer? Nothing! A very few dollars saved today results in higher cost later when higher taxes are required to pay unemployment benefits to those that lost the last cheap jobs in actual shops.

    Amazon is'nt hurting BKS or it's investor's. Amazon is hurting "EVERYONE".
