Nu Skin

Postby JamesVincent » Mon Jan 20, 2014 6:26 pm

Another one I had seen no info about so I'll start this one off right.

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304419104579326490944091518

The People's Daily continued its attack on Nu Skin for a third day on Friday, criticizing the U.S. company's global operations and reiterating the newspaper's view that the company is operating an illegal pyramid scheme in China. "In the development of Nu Skin, there have always been problems of illegal operation and practice," Friday's article said.


Which, actually, sounds a lot better then:

"January 18, 2014--Nu Skin's stock fell more than 40% this week after a scathing story in China's state-run People's Daily compared Nu Skin's training methods for new sales reps to "brain washing" and suggested it operates an illegal pyramid scheme. The article also said China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce is investigating the company.

Lift me up above this, the flames and the ashes,
Lift me up and help me to fly away.
Lift me up above this, the broken, the empty,
Lift me up and help me to fly away,
Lift me up!

Considering Nu Skin's, shall we say charitably, abysmal legal track record in this country, I would hardly think that China of all places would be a good place for it to try out its business model. The Chinese are notoriously lacking in the humor gene when it comes to things like this, particularly things coming in from outside the country. I do not, I think foresee a long and profitable business arrangement in those climes.
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.
