Trump's new thought bubble: Make Apple manufacture in the USA


Re: I Feel Dirty

You're correct. But the logic, of course, does hold - the examples don't. Dyson, for example, used to build their vacuums and washing machines in the UK. But they moved the washing machines outside of the UK for a reduction in the cost of manufacturing. However the price of them never reduced.

HP Sauce, another UK business who had a factory in Birmingham, moved their manufacturing to Holland. Again, because it was cheaper.

Finally you have the likes of British Gas and Vodafone who ran massive call centres here in the UK, then decided that was too expensive and moved them to India.

So as wrong as I was regarding Peugeot, not so much Vauxhall as they were a British company, my logic stays the same.
