The post office was part of some international postal union which set prices for trade between countries. China somehow was considered a developing nation and therefore got cheap rates to send packages to the US. Not the other way around. The postal service has lost over 300 million a year delivering packages from China to the US. Enjoy it while it lasts, those prices will probably go up soon.

Yep. 99% of mail is junk.
1% is bills that I can pay online like my property taxes.

I love USPS. I got them to ship an entire Jag XKE door to England for 1/3 to 1/4 of what UPS, DHL, or FedEx wanted.
