How long before the high value-added work goes overseas too? There was an article last year in BusinessWeek on a fabric/garment company in India that current did most of the production for some clothes stores in the U.S. They were expanding their offerings from just manufacturing to also finding fabric suppliers and also opening a design division. Their goal was that "when Saks needs their spring collection, they just make one phone call and it's all done from design to delivery". My first thought when reading this was what you mentioned above - who's going to have the jobs to buy it?
