  •  Check out the Reshoring Initiative (13+ / 0-)

    This is a nonprofit that has developed a model for making the total cost of offshoring more visible so that companies can make decisions that are better for them, better for their communities and better for this country.

    The Reshoring Initiative

    A lot of executives got sold a bill of goods - and Mitt Romney's former employer, Bain, was one of the cheerleaders, along with everyone's favorite retailer, Wal*Mart.  

    This group offers help for companies that want to bring work back where it belongs: close to the people who will buy and use the products.

    This is not about being isolationist, either. China and India are both huge places with large markets of their own, and unique problems to solve.  If they redirected their energy towards solving their own problems vs. "solving" ours, the world would be a better place.
