Here is the Link : Manufacturing trending away from China - 10/13/2009 - Electronic Business This is a very interesting article. Quite a few of those thousands of US companies that outsourced manufacturing jobs to China are now starting to get heartburn. The costs have gone up, and the quality is suspect, and the reward/risk tradeoff is starting to raise eyebrows. Adding to that, is the fact that IP theft and counterfeiting is rampant. Its looks like the party is coming to an end !!! Personally, I feel that most of these companies deserve it for laying off thousands of workers in US to shift to China and even India.
