With nearshoring, garment production may move from China to Mexico and Turkey - Quartz
But shifts now taking place in China and across fashion could eventually redraw the world’s garment-manufacturing map. A new report by the management consultancy McKinsey finds that rising costs in China and the imperative for fashion brands to deliver goods faster than ever are making it more cost-effective for Western brands to produce their simple styles in low-cost countries nearer at hand.

The proposed “border adjustment” that is part of a tax reform package Congress is debating could cause the U.S. dollar to appreciate relative to other currencies. Under the plan, companies would not be able to deduct the cost of imports from their revenue, a move that today enables them to lower their overall tax burden. At the same time, exports and other foreign sales would be made tax free.

NAFTA 2.0 and the Art of the Deal - Global Trade Magazine
Is renegotiating NAFTA a good idea‭? ‬It depends what you are trying to accomplish.‭ ‬No agreement is perfect,‭ ‬and commerce has changed markedly since‭ ‬1994‭—‬for example,‭ ‬when NAFTA entered into force,‭ ‬there was no commercial use of the internet.‭ ‬Modernizing and updating the agreement is a worthwhile objective.‭ ‬Yet trade agreements are typically effect,‭ ‬not cause:‭ ‬nations make agreements because existing commercial relationships are important,‭ ‬not the other way around.‭ ‬Overall,‭ ‬NAFTA has helped to triple merchandise trade among the three economies in nominal terms,‭ ‬from‭ ‬$306‭ ‬billion in‭ ‬1993‭ ‬to just over‭ ‬$1‭ ‬trillion in‭ ‬2015.‭ ‬But it’s important to remember that Canada and Mexico were the United States‭’ ‬number‭ ‬1‭ ‬and number‭ ‬3‭ ‬trading partners respectively before NAFTA,‭ ‬and they hold the same rank today.

Part of the reason the Carrier case received so much coverage is that workers were able to complain to the media without fear of getting fired. The Batesville case is much more typical, as hundreds of American firms lay off workers and shift production abroad every year with hardly any attention in the national media.

Why Trump Tariffs on Mexican Cars Probably Won't Stop Job Flight - Bloomberg
Infrastructure in Mexico lags behind the highway and rail network in the U.S., so it actually costs automakers $300 more per car in additional shipping expenses to produce the vehicle in Mexico and ship it to Europe, and an extra $900 to ship it to the U.S.

That means, even after paying significantly less on labor, a car company is walking away with wage savings of only $300 per car—a fraction of what it costs to build and ship in the U.S. The bulk of the savings are tied to Mexico’s trade agreements and cheaper parts.
