Fake commodities can be found, now and then, in the market, which has aroused a lot of public attention. It is reported that these commodities range from foodstuff, clothes to radios, and TV sets and even medicines.
Fake commodities are harmful in many ways. To begin with, they bring about great loss in both properties and lives. For instance, if someone buys some fake medicines, it may not cure him of his illness, on the contrary, it may probably make his illness worse or even put an end to his life. Besides, fake commodities may impair the profit of the manufactures who produce the real products by making the consumers suspicious of these products, thus causing social problems.
There are many ways to get rid of fake commodities. First, laws should be enforced to punish those who produce these products. Second, people should be advised how to tell the genuine commodities from the fake ones. Moreover, people should not buy things just because they are cheap and attractively advertised. Furthermore, they should be encouraged to report to the relevant authorities in case they have bought a fake commodity. In a word, if the whole society work together to solve this problem, I think fake commodities will have nowhere to exist.
