In this case, the prices of goods will be pulled down and profit margins will be reduced as a result.

Large countries with perfect industrial facilities, higher production efficiency, and sufficient skilled personnel require lower costs to produce the same quality of goods, while the opposite is true for small countries with imperfect industrial facilities, low production efficiency, insufficient skilled personnel, and higher costs of production. In this case, the big countries can take the price war approach, the commodity bombing, regardless of the cost of acquiring customers, small countries because of their own lack of capital, high production costs, in the price war will be defeated, and eventually will only lose the battle, bankruptcy or acquisition by the big countries, and so on and so forth, the gap between the big countries and small countries will widen, small countries do not have the opportunity to catch up with the big countries, the world pattern will therefore be rigid The world pattern will be frozen.

  China is the largest developing country, in e-commerce global trade is at a disadvantage. But our country cannot close the door and fear the globalized economy, only to challenge it positively and use the new opportunities of e-commerce to seek development in the economic globalization.
