    Waooooo. Now I know!

    But, I said it before. When you buy, say, a Samsung galaxy bla bla, you are actually buying a generic device made somewhere in China, but with the Samsung badge.

    The badge / brand is usually what you buy and pay so much money for. It’s all in your mind.

    Same with cars. Car companies routinely use different parts from different auto companies, and assemble.

    You drive a Ssanyong, and the engine is Mercedes.

    A brother owns a Chevrolet made Geo whose engine bay houses a Toyota Carina from the factory!

    Your Mercury villager Jeep is a variant or technical twin of the Nissan Quest.

    There are Rovers with Honda engines.

    The conclusion?

    Don’t pay attention to all those high flying brands. You are wasting your money. Instead pay attention to the product and get value for money.

    Same happens in the pharmaceutical industries.

    You have the. Emzor or Beecham made Paracetamol. Radically different prices; same product and curative effect.

    Save money when you buy generic items instead of brand names
