46. I did not say manufacturing is dead,

you need to go back and read for understanding.
You also need to become more familiar where the RW has historically stood on trade and also where the t-party of today stands. Trump also stands with your view.


Just so you know--FoxConn is an electronic contract manufacturer based in China. They assemble iphones for Apple, and other electronics. They use automated assembly for the circuit boards, where robotic arms pick and place the components onto circuit boards which have been prepared with solder paste. The actual labor to assemble the product is a secret but estimates run from 2 to 5% of the sales price. (price of labor $1.78/hour)=7 to 17 hours.
China is one of those countries with which we do not have a TPP/NAFTA type accord.
