The Competition for Used TV Supply

In the Peru blogs, I described how used TVs from China were found in the markets where I used to sell used USA CRT televisions.

The people who used to buy USA used repairable / working TVs now buy Chinese repairable / working TVs.

Is the solution a ban on exports of used TVs from China to South America?  Or does that just mean that South America will have neither USA nor Chinese used (affordable) TVS?

First we ban USA "e-waste" exports, then we convince China to be afraid of brown children who receive ewaste...?
