I hope I'm not "flogging a dead horse" here but while surfing the net (I usually read on automation stuff, as that is what we mostly work on), I found this article. Interesting read! http://www.machinedesign.com/ASP/strArticleID/56324/strSite/MDSite/viewSelectedArticle.asp
Observation: When Mexico started to be the place of Manufacturers to move (lower labour costs), everybody got concerned but atleast they purchased; Support, materials and equipment from Canada and the United States. This in eccence kept some sort of money flowing on the North American Continent ( Canada,USA,Mexico).
China, different story: To far away!
I guess everybody forgets, "What Goes ($) Around, ($)Comes Around"
Humm, Ok now that is off my chest and I'm shopping for a new vehicle, maybe that article will help influence my decision!!!!
