Burden of reshoring manufacturing back into USA?

I specifically ordered my Ford pickup with "No airbags ,no aircon"........completely escaped the Sakata fiasco which resulted in recalled airbags refits being recalled again a couple of years later ........with Ford writing off the second recall for "fair market ".......very unfair if your truck is as new and has less than 50,000 on the clock.........I had to fight Ford to avoid having my truck written off and unregistrable by the state govt,going entirely on Fords advice..
 
What company would "reshore" to a country (USA) which has a president (Joe Biden ) who has promised to destroy the entire US energy industry, the entire US fossil fuel industry, and has done everything in his power to send work to China with the "green new deal?" ( While China build coal power plants weekly.)
 
Changing the direction of the energy industry does not equate to destroying it. It equates to meeting the country's obligations under international agrements. It also provides opportunities for US manufacturers to produce the same products that the rest of the world are using...

"provides opportunities for US manufacturers to produce the same products that the rest of the world are using..."
Absolutely correct!
 
China and India will take zero notice of any climate agreements that dont suit them ......Xi and Modi will just turn up the air conditioning...........a relative who has returned from darkest Africa ,comments on the huge Chinese trucks carrying minerals ,specifically cobalt ,and col-tan all over the roads there ........he has a vid of 1,000 Chinese trucks waiting at the border crossing from Congo ...the holdup because the border guards had jacked up the bribe ,and the Chinese were refusing to pay .....as they are on a strict budget to maximize profit for Beijing.............he also comments on the vast numbers of children every where he went ,seemingly without parents .

Figured there must have some type of deal made between China and the Congo.
Motivation: "Congo is the world's largest producer of battery material cobalt, and a major copper producer."
The Deal: "Congo's $6 bln China mining deal 'unconscionable'" After reading about "deal" it appears The Congo took their eye off the ball and got bamboozled flim-flammed, and hustled.
Them crafty Chinese!
 
Reshoring is possible only with stuff the government is prepared to pay any price for..........the difference in cost of anything else is so great ,everyone says ...forget it.
With the increasing levels of automation, you begin to reach a point where transportation costs overwhelm the cost of labor regardless of its per-hour rate. This,of course discounts arbitrage involved in the Forex.
 
I must have missed where he said; "don't get an education".

If you are not growing, you're dying. Everyone should thirst for knowledge, that is how we increase our capabilities and become better people; better for ourselves, our families and for society as a whole.

Educated is something you become through a journey of seeking knowledge. It is not something you "get", it's something you do.

Institutional indoctrination centers do not have a monopoly on higher learning Jim. They merely provide a certificate stating that a person has completed their course of curriculum - for an exorbitant fee no less.

Most people seek institutional indoctrination because that is what our society has deemed necessary in order to be considered a "business professional" - a member of "polite society" if you will.

As such; any management or technical specialist position within a sizable organization these days will require a 4 year degree at a minimum - most management positions now require a master's degree.

I have seen a number of positions where it did not matter if your degree was relevant to the job position; as long as you could prove that you have gone through "polite society finishing school", you are welcome to apply for the job.

Sure, there is good reason for some folks to go to college. However, for you to say that one must go to college or alternatively; "just work the rest of you life at a low paying job" - only reinforces the truth I have just laid out.

I don't know you, but from reading what you type and how you reply; it is clear to me that you see yourself as a higher class of human than the rest of us.

You know how to properly quote, yet you refuse to do it because we are not worth the respect of addressing directly.

When you're not trying to gaslight others with fake hypocrisy or whimsical exaggeration; You consistently mock, scoff and ridicule members here anytime an opportunity presents itself.

Who uses their real name as a username? Someone who wants to show themself off in front of the world. A man who wants everyone to know that they are engaged in discourse with an accomplished man of "polite society".

It's much harder to live a life of Liberty when you are tied up building someone else's empire Jim. I get along just fine without an indoctrination certificate or brown-nosing "business professionals" on the golf course; I believe many other folks on this forum could say the same.
never stepped foot on a college campus other than to drop off and pick up my siblings. making well into 6 figure salary at a company that values me for my skills, that no college could ever teach.
you're 100% spot on.
