Odd, that:

Make it worthwhile for a company to stay or return to the US, and they do…..

Fiat Chrysler will move Ram Heavy Duty truck manufacturing back to Michigan from Mexico.

“FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne says the company should adjust its manufacturing footprint to reflect “improvement in the U.S. business environment.””

MAGA and all that. But, at the end of it all, the economic policies make it worthwhile to bring that production back to the US.

A long time ago I did work for a subcontractor  that made wiring harness testers for Ford. The Ford folks hated the fact that they had production in Mexico….the workers sucked, the plant was shit and they wished they could afford to move the pant back. But they couldn’t, due to Clinton policies. Bush didn’t fix that, and neither did Clinton.

Economic policy dictates where Big Business (and the small businesses that supply and support them) locate.

Now, look what is happening
