4. Lots of reasons
The cost of shipping (air and ship shipping is expensive), customs, distributors (read paperpushers. I can't come up with another term),
OTR (over the road) and local hauling of the product, etc.

There are mark-ups at every point of the route from China to here. Then add in the take of the person who runs the store that sells the product and you come up with the final costs.

All this saving money crap is hogwash. It's collective greed. After you factor in all the extra costs it's really cheaper to make it here even with our higher wages.

It's just another way the right wing has hoodwinked us so they can take more money. Each deception needs a thesis and an anti-thesis per Strauss so as to confuse the opposer. Outsourcing is really the right wing decieving us once again.
