In my previous posts, I recently objected to the "cartoon" stereotypes of electronics recyclers overseas. This does kind of make that point. The scale of the "informal sector" has been grossly exaggerated, and the scale of well-lit, sophisticated white box remanufacturing has been dramatically underplayed. So... yeah I still love the cartoon, but it's kind of a watermelon and fried chicken joke, even if the importers are blue.
