Google "Buried somewhat quietly in the noise of Google's spate of announcements today was an interesting fact: the Nexus Q, Google's new media streamer and first self-built consumer hardware, is being manufactured in the United States." Just getting their toes wet, for sure, but it's interesting it's Google making the first attempt to bring back production to the west. I won't comment on whether or not production should move back in the first place, but in all honesty, I expected Apple to be the one to make the first move here.

They are not a free country and paying them at all enforced the slavery imposed on the people. They manipulate the currency and dump products. [...]
I agree the US isn't the perfect model but it is light years ahead of that backward place.

Right, because US wouldn't exploit the US dollar for its benefit, never!

BTW, the mess in China, for most of XX century, was largely brought - a bit earlier - by what they call "the century of humiliation" ...in which the US also had a major part - and what the Chinese very much remember.

The US which exports and promotes such slavery (another example: http://www.businessinsider.com/wikileaks-haiti-minimum-wage-the-nat... ), which dumps its "products" around the world (what do you think forcing IP laws on other countries is? Or diplomatic efforts to push through fattening drugs, US kind of medicine-injected farming, and overall industrial approach to agriculture ...despite how poorly it works out, with US having one of the poorer population health indicators in the developed world)
