So once again the Libs lied. Who will notice it except for the choir here? The Repubs in DC will not mention it because that might hurt somebody’s feelings and so the masses will continue to believe the Repubs are the liars. I give up.

Too freaking late. The damage is done and we get to deal with it for as long as the a$$hat is in office.

Meanwhile, where is the “press” that GM has opened up a design shop in China to support it’s increased factory production, including US transferries??

So their infra-structure is moving to China!! Press crickets

For the last 20 years manufacturing has chased the idea of lower production cost. They are, however, finally waking up to the fact that production is only part of the total cost. Transport, inventory, scrap and lost opportunity are all expensive too.

If you throw away (or sell at a loss) items that customers no longer want (think of out of style clothes) what good did it do to save a buck making them? If your cycle time is doubled because your factory is in China and a defect is found at the end of the line you have double the problem.

Manufacturers are going to make their products close to their customers. This is bad if your company is making all of their products here. It’s good for those in industries that have seen jobs go overseas. Much of this work is going to be brought back home in the next 10 years.

The initial report was not really true. Jeep is not moving production to China.

Jeep is going to produce in China and in the USA. There is a difference, a big difference.

Sealy a North Carolina Company produces mattresses in Washington........ the cost of transport necessitates local production to be competitive.

So it is with Jeep. The same is true with many companies including General Motors that would not exist were it not for revenue from China operations.

Fiat is a global enterprise with capabilities Chrysler lacked. Fiat is flexing it’s muscle to increase sales in the largest auto market in the world.
