Deere announced a $125 million plant for parts and manufacturing to be built in China, including building tractors. Boeing CEO wants to move a larger part of operations to China. As our standard of living decreases and global countries increase, I think we have some rough times ahead. AND those in power evidently can or do not want to do anything about it. We have been bleeding here for a long time now.No sign of it abating.

Boeing just pulled 587 part numbers and all the related tools from our plant. Not a great deal of work, compared to the total amount we do for them, but a trickle ends up being a flood. I would imagine we were underbid by Chinese companies.

our past leaders like NIXON, REAGAN wanted this 'global economy' and now we have it. the companies are the ones that benefit from 'Globalization'.

As opposed to liberals, who want "redistribution of wealth" by simply giving it away. At least we are getting back the fruits of chinese labor.

I have to blame managment for some of our problems. I'm so ticked off at my cell phone--The only thing that our companies do now is promotional junk, and if you have problems you must speak to a no english dide, even when I push 1 for english.

Our system has taken the hand shake away, and offered a way to put their hands in our pockets, and still be legal.

Like what the heck is a 30 day warrenty mean on a product that sells for a couple thousand dollars? Years ago they would have been hung for such crapola.

China doesn't run our school systems, but I would certianly like to know what the cost is per hr for my kids to go to school once you add all the total budget together.

Well what do we do to big companies here in America? If they make a profit we belittle them, berate them, politicians blame them for everything, we tax them to death, over-regulate them, impose onerous fees on them and sic the ERA, DNR, and enviornmental wackos on them.

I dont blame them for leaving.

You are right but I do blame the citizens for letting such a motley crew get in charge here. How can so called functioning adults be so gullible? "Wha hoppened Loocy" is the general intelligence of most it seems.

Whoops, error

I have no way to confirm this but a buddy of mine and I were talk the other day and the topic of where would you go (as in left the usa). He stated If he had the money he would go to China. I asked if he was nuts and he said due to china's expanding economy people and companies that brought in big bucks were given special treatment. Just what that includes I am not sure but I could agree they are likely reducing tax rates and such to get them there.

In one way or another, any company that is doing business in China is in business with the chinese government. Boeing and JD have been doing business there for years. A lot of the airplanes you fly and the tractors you drive are made in China. For example, a chinese company bought a local aircraft hydraulics company - Teledyne Howell Penncraft. The made streering system parts for aircraft. Very precise stuff. They were bought out by the chinese company, and over a period of 3 years, all the work was transferred to china. The american workers were all let go, and the building is vacant and for sale. I am told that their hydraulics are in everything Boeing makes. Boeing has sourced many parts directly from China, Japan, Korea. JD sources a lot of stuff, including whole tractors, from India, China, Mexico, Brazil. I don't think there is any tractor under a 100 hp made here in 20 years or more. Anybody in a manufacturing job in this country is in the "last of the Mohicans" status.
