Investors Seek Asian Options to Costly China

Investors Seek Asian Options to Costly China- NY Times article.

Lots of businesses moving to Vietnam in search of cheaper labor, stability, tax breaks, etc.

At the trade show we were setting up today, and a person who helped give us some tie wraps was making a joke about the tie wraps we had. That sometimes good stuff came out of China, but that was by mistake. And I thought what about that iPod, it's made in China. China produces junk, but at the same time has world class products. And just looking at wages, it's not the cheapest. But what matters is the total cost equation. Some businesses due to higher freight costs are moving back manufacturing to the US and Mexico. Freight with the high cost of oil is not cheap anymore.
