    'Made in America' now cheaper than made in Brazil: Boston Consulting Group

    By Bernice Napach April 25, 2014 11:07 AM

    SOURCE:

    (There is an embedded video in the link above)

    Dramatic shifts are happening in global manufacturing, shifts that would have been unbelievable just a few years ago. It is now cheaper to produce goods in Mexico than in China and about 25% more expensive to manufacture products in Brazil than in the U.S., according to a new report from The Boston Consulting Group.


    "The conventional wisdom that China and Asia are low cost and South America is low cost and Europe and the U.S. are high cost is no longer true," says Hal Sirkin, a co-author of the report and a senior partner at BCG.


    BCG analyzed the 25 top exporting economies according to key drivers of manufacturing and created an index to show their competitive rankings. Among the results: the competitive edge for China over the U.S., which was historically about 20 points, has narrowed to just five.


    "The gap is closing and, when you add the transportation costs, it makes a lot more sense for a lot of products to be made in the U.S. than in China," Sirkin tells The Daily Ticker. He says at least 300 companies have moved manufacturing operations back to the U.S. from overseas, a move known as "re-shoring," because "it just makes economic sense."


    The U.S. workforce is among the most productive in the world, with relatively flat wages, and has easily available energy resources, Sirkin explains in the video above.


    As a result, says Sirkin, foreign companies like Volkswagen (VLKAY) and Siemens (SI) have opened plants in the U.S. and Siemens is even exporting some of the products it makes here. "We're seeing exports from the U.S. rise dramatically."

    I wish all their manufacturing moved here. Then we would probably able to buy most / all parts for our guns.


    I choose the gun as the instrument of peace. When peace no longer seeks me I become the instrument.

    I've said for years now that the current disparity can't last, and the cost of labor wouldn't be the defining factor in where it made the most sense to location manufacturing capability. This is much sooner than I expected, and there are factors I never thought of, but still, I'm going to claim this as another prediction come true.

    The administration is making it more costly to import than it would be to ship over equipment from Brazil and make them here. Then they can avoid those silly restrictions that the left has thrown in the face of manufacturers for decades. Sounds like a god move to me.

    Wisconsin is wide open for business, but I did not see anything that would make me believe that Taurus would come here ( Henry Rifles is here in this state) to this are though we'd love to have them.
