"Those jobs aren't coming back."

"So Steve Jobs told Obama"

What does China have that America lacks?Quite a lot. China has more mid-level engineers, a more flexible workforce, and gigantic factories that can ramp up production at the drop of a hat. China also offers tech firms a one-stop solution. "The entire supply chain is in China now," a former high-ranking Apple executive tells The Times. "You need a thousand rubber gaskets? That's the factory next door. You need a million screws? That factory is a block away. You need that screw made a little bit different? It will take three hours."


  1. I have a friend that deals with China almost exclusively. He told me that the quality of the goods being exported from there is not the fault of the Chinese.

    They will build whatever you want, but they build to your specs and nothing more. If you want cheap, they give you cheap. You want first class you get it. But you pay.

  2. I have been in manufacturing for 30 plus years and more and more goes over seas. We are going to be in trouble no matter what happens. Tough times are coming.
