I keep wondering, what happens to the US when Trump insists that production for their consumers needs to be done in the US and by the US? Can they stand as an ivory tower without needing China, India, Mexico and South East Asia where production is largely done? Take an example of iPhones, or any other phones. They are made in the East for costs, reason why Motorola couldn’t compete globally.
Also, with the kind of costs of production expected, can made in US compete globally, for the market outside US, with Made in East?
