Obama Saves Older iPhones from ITC Ban
If Reagan did it back in '87
Of course the whole 'buy American', economic nationalism thing is harmful and misguided, and the idea that 'countries compete with each other' is complete nonsense, but that's a discussion for another day....
I don't know why i'm having a hard time with this concept.
Fixed it for ya "i'll also explain:
See, we are (Americans that is) lazy and inflexible SOB's. When it comes to tapping a willing labor pool to put a product like an iPhone together, it doesn't exist here.
China adapts quickly to meet demand or lack thereof. They have a vast workforce to pull from. We whine and complain about perceived deplorable working conditions overseas and if we attempted to build an iPhone here you would never buy it anyway. "Made in America" in this case may mean a 5k phone that trickles off the assembly line to masses of angry people that need their newest phone NOW!!!
Was my Steve Jobs impersonation convincing enough?
Seriously, those jobs aren't coming back. We don't want them unless we get paid $70 an hour, massive healthcare benefits and a fat pension after 20 years. Some call it greed, others call it survival I guess because your competitor is doing the same thing. Nice guys go out of business...he he he!!!
going to get hated for this post...lol!
