  1. They are moving some mfg back onshore for tax breaks, and also due to the instability of the global economy. That is all. Also, global climate change is affecting shipping, so that enters in. It is not about benefiting the people, it is keeping the suckers buying their stuff. All sound and fury signifying nothing. They might even try to use the prison industrial complex for labor.
    I despise what Apple has become. Look at Foxcomm.
