Re: [newtech-1] Apple - Made in the USA

Does anyone have a metric as to cost to build plant vs plant output? Apple has so much cash that any yield over treasury yields is a win. Assuming MAC US sales are half of the $3b in WW sales. 1.5b in sales 100mm in cost plus shipping costs. Wonder how numbers work.

Outsourcing is something being worked on for 2 or 3 decades, there is no way to reverse it in the present conditions, a  lot factors are intertwined,
there is no silver bullet or one size fits all here.

100 million?  is enough to build a facility to produce the labels  "Made in USA", yes the label is made in USA
