    Made in the USA, Again: Manufacturing Is Expected to Return to America as China’s Rising Labor Costs Erase Most Savings from Offshoring

    Mathman,
    Can low cost manufacturing go from China to the US without stopping in Mexico or India and Indonesia first?

    15-20% wage increases in China spell social trouble – they have entire cities devoted to particular products, what happens when VCR City completely shuts down?

    US manufacturing has been relatively cheap compared to western europe – even before the collapse of the dollar compared to the Euro
