Write an essay with Combating Fake Products as its title. Your essay should contain the three points given below.
1. Present situation
2. Possible causes
Everybody may have had the experience of running into fake products, because they are every-where in the market. It is generally accepted that fake products harm the interest of the consumers.
The overflow of fake products is possibly of several causes. The first is the lust for profit, which drives manufacturers to reduce the cost. While reducing the cost in itself is by no means illegal, it brings out fake products, if the cost is brought down to a level where the quality of the products cannot be guaranteed. Another cause for the spread of fake products is the lack of necessary measures to su-pervise the market, which makes it possible for fake products to pass for quality goods. Still another cause lies in the consumers themselves. They don’t pay much attention of the quality as long as the price is good.
Since fake products are harmful to the consumers, things should be done to guard against them. While the government can do much to prevent them from entering the market, the consumers should develop a self-protection mechanism by learning to distinguish quality goods from fake ones and resisting the temptation of sales offers and advertisements.
