American manufacturing jobs returning: ‘inshoring’

  • The savings with China have halved as their labour costs rise
  • quality control issues have costs some companies more than they were saving
  • companies had to fill a whole shipping container to get the per unit cost down, and then ended up warehousing goods for far too long
  • an estimated half a million jobs could return to America if companies evaluate the problems, and costs, of outsourcing to China.
