Offshore Production……….

Recently I posted a question on LinkedIn about the REAL cost to produce offshore. The responses were very interesting and telling. There were the usual responses about the labor rates being lower than in the U.S. I can understand how that would be important in a labor intensive environment such as a call center, but I question the value in a capital intensive environment. The responses ranged from broken products to mis-marked products to long delays to safety stock inventories at home. All of these add costs but add no value. There hasn’t been a single response as to tax benefits. How is this cycle of offshore production overturned and production brought back to the U.S.?
