Our View: Is N.C. serious about luring manufacturing? - Fayetteville Observer: Editorials
The other Carolina thumped us again. This time it's a Volvo plant, which will sit just outside Charleston, not far from the Boeing plant that North Carolina also tried to win but couldn't.
This state's leaders insist that they want projects like these, which bring billions of dollars in capital investment and thousands of good-paying jobs. But they're not willing to pay the price - which in the case of Volvo was more than $200 million in state and local incentives, including $120 million in state-issued economic-development bonds.

Why Ethan Allen Believes in U.S. Manufacturing for Export - Woodworking Network
Excerpted from a presentation by Farooq Kathwari, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ethan Allen, to the Raymond James Insitutional Investment conference. Two years back, we would have thought of making it offshore. We are now making it right here in North America – in Vermont, and North Carolina. And we had to do something very simple. You see, there is a gold gilding on this. Our associates first said we can't do it here because this is easier to be done overseas. So we said let’s hire 30 or 40 artists. And today, we have been able to bring this product back, and now we are shipping it internationally, and especially to China.
