Automation Brings Back US Manufacturing Jobs

This sends chills up my spine but as Philip Wilson puts it, “Long predicted here. The 3rd world cheap labor manufacturing advantage is beginning to sunset. Robotics combined with the maturation of 3-D printing will move manufacturing back to consuming nations. Increasing fuel and transportation costs will also be a factor over time discouraging manufacture half a planet away from consumption. Places like Singapore will still flourish as they have created their own consuming class. Hope this trend continues.”
