Like it or not, Donald Trump is President and Mike Pence VP. They have a commitment to reduce taxes on corporations from the highest in the world to ~15%. They will also find a way to encourage companies to repatriate trillions of dollars parked off-shore, to re-invest in North American manufacturing.
Without protectionist policies, and nurturing international competitiveness, US and Canadian companies - and others wishing to manufacture here - should be attracted to North America for both domestic consumption and export.

Mexico could become part of this, so long as they stop massive emigration to the US, protect their souther borders from the Drug Cartels and adopt an even playing field with North American industry.
Latest Data: There are over 20 million people working for government in the US today. Less than 10 million work in manufacturing. 7 million manufacturing jobs have been lost since manufacturing's peak in the 1990's. Don't you think it's about time something be done about this?

This site is dedicated to Ideas, Programs and People, including corporate leaders, that will assist the U.S. in strengthening its domestic footprint for high volume electronic manufacturing, and other industries.

The government aspect of this issue will play out with Tax Relief on Foreign Earnings of American Companies, or with programs designed to increase U.S. competitiveness in a global economy.
