The human mind is very strange. When we lived in Guyana, we preferred foreign things. Now that we are in North America, we are making some merchants very rich as they overcharge us for products from Guyana which we once relegated to second option. There was a time when we were in Guyana that we craved American cars. Now that we live in North America, we prefer Japanese and European ones.
So true, Even today in Canada we still prefer Cadbury chocolates and Quality Sweets from England. Whenever we buy rice and sugar ,it must be from Guyana. Our minds were programmed to believe that imported products were superior .I have a few friends that would not drink Canadian beer, but only foreign beers. As for cars, my first was a GM product, and after that I have German and Japanese because they are better vehicles.
In our defense, the Cadbury bar from England tastes better than the US one. Plus this is always top of the line.
