#1 You reap what you sow, and that's what the US did. Now, let's try to fix it. But the reason many things were "off-shored" in the first place was labor costs. Does anybody really believe there will be no adverse affect on prices here?

#2 I suppose they could always take it from the middlemen.

#3 Global supply chains operated by stateless multinational corporations simply aren’t reliable.

Now find me an MBA curriculum that mentions this fact.

#4 Donald Trump appears to threaten China with sanctions over bid to end Hong Kong's special status as his economic advisor says the U.S. would PAY moving costs for firms if they revert here

#6 US would pay for moving costs? Sure, why not? Gum'ment is paying for everything else around here. Any semblance of free-market capitalism is long, long gone.

#8 I don’t care if they specifically come back to the US.

Send them to a US territory or this continent. Work with the tribes.

As part of BRAFTA Negotiations, give BoJo a bone. He can put some in England or Ireland or BVI. Let the NHS profit and let them sell to Europe. Scotland gets left in the cold, tho, since they want to leave.

If Poland or Hungary leaves, give them a bone, too.

#9 Part of the problem is the NIMBY destruction of the American chemical industry. The precursors have to come from somewhere, and if you don't have some control over those, drug factories alone are no help with getting us out of China's shadow.

#10 Offer to suspend payroll taxes for 3 years to any firm that repatriates to the US.

#12 Detroit has prime real estate.

Native American reservations do as well, and a labor force.
