Tariffs have traditionally been government’s way of preserving local jobs. That they’re now reviled tells us who controls the media, if we somehow didn’t already know.
The ones selling either have to cut their profits or start local manufacturing. Since they’re always loath to do the former, they usually do the latter if they can’t get the tariffs cancelled as is always their first choice.
The predators are in hog heaven when they can, e.g., sell us un-QA’d computer hardware made from scavenged and run-of-the-fab parts assembled in a Shenzhen sweatshop rather than QA’d product made from binned parts assembled in a modern automated factory in Taipei where humans work in humane conditions doing only the hard parts (placing expensive chips; reworking the few boards that slip past the QA robots (http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=1722&page=20).
AMD should build one of those factories —or buy and relocate Gigabyte’s. If they ran it as a job shop, it would be very good for us all.
