FORTUNE -- Tim Cook drops a bombshell in his interview with Brian Williams scheduled to air Thursday evening: Apple (AAPL) next year will begin
manufacturing one of its existing Mac lines exclusively in the U.S.
I told myself about a year and a half ago, I wouldn't dare purchase another Apple Product unless it's manufactured here in North America.
Seriously, there is NO REASON that a Tycoon with the likes of Apple cannot have their products made in the country in which it was invented.
It's mass madness, even in the name of profit.... Hoarding Billions upon Billions of dollars is the essence of what's wrong with America and
Capitalism as a whole.
The almost "cult-like" devotion of much of their customer base has already proven that price is no object when purchasing products that Apple
competes in, so increased pricing to maintain margins by building here might work
until...at least...Samsung or other comes out with a true Apple-corer
They could do what all the television makers do and have assembly plants for their chinese components just over the border in Mexico. Thanks to NAFTA
Mexico is loaded with low-skill assembly line jobs because assembling and importing over the southern border is cheaper than assembling and shipping
across an ocean.
Then charter a couple of buses to shuttle Americas over the boarder to work.
