Also the productivity of American workers offsets the lower wages in China, although we will reach parity around 2015 if things continue as they are in both countries. There is less union organizing, and the laws protect the corporations in any workplace disputes better in the South than in China. And of course it goes without saying that with no union there are no strikes, something that is becoming common in China.

    Kinda funny that the big German and Swedish firms are exploiting the American worker in ways that they would never consider at home. And strange that we would become the place to go to get good quality cheap labor with no need to pay for health benefits, pensions and to avoid strict workplace safety rules that are in place in Europe. It is also much easier to fire workers in the US than in Europe for trying to organize or for attempting to enforce state safety and labor rules.

    For the most part, the EU considers American a third world country as the exchange rates with the $ to the Pound make American goods look very attractive at the moment. $ to Pound $1.61.86:1

    Problem with American is that most of our manufacturing capability has shifted to other countries putting the US at a disadvantage when attracting foreign investment. Just like the originator of this thread, plastic injection and such is very expensive and there are not a lot of companies that want to do the work. Been looking for a US company that does this work and they all point you to China as they want big $ to do work so they concentrate on small runs where the cost does not drive jobs over seas.

    I agree that India has a much better business environment as they are American educated, speak English, have been endocrined to the English culture (former British colony) and have a huge middle class that can and is willing to do the work.

    Don't take this personally, but the pound is the British currency, the Euro is the EU currency and is currently trading at $1=€.70.

    Also of the 1.21 BILLION people in India, I doubt that very many were educated in America. Over several trips, I have spent more that a year in India traveling from Tamil Nadu in the south to Ladakh in the far north and I saw very little evidence of English culture beyond the worlds most obstructive civil service, a good, but worn out rail network and the use of "Indian English" as a common language.

    Good info, thanks. I'm going to go and check this out. I remember I was in Vegas some years back during this convention and I was staying at the Hard Rock. Doc Martin shoes had the band Lit playing on a stage they built partially over the pool. Any reason to go to Vegas is a good one for me.

    True on the Pound, the but social status in India is to be American educated so the mid level managers and such all speak English and understand the culture of the USA.

    Every customer service call we make educates them a little more.

    Not sure if this thread includes it but I watched the movie "The China Question" the other night and found it really good and informative far beyond just the cheap labor factor commonly focused on.

    I'd recommend it to anyone who has any concern about China, available from Netflix and may be on CNBC again. http://thechinaquestion.com/
