Jeff Immelt: Localization Can Help America Win Around the World - TIME
Here’s what I know: outsourcing is different from globalization—and it’s yesterday’s game. During the 1980s and ’90s, business looked to emerging markets as a cheap labor source. American jobs transferred to countries that welcomed U.S. companies with open arms. American workers lost in the game of wage arbitrage. But the days of outsourcing are declining. Chasing the lowest labor costs is yesterday’s model; digital and advanced manufacturing technologies make the factories of today more productive.

Now we need to go where the growth is. That is what globalization means today.

There’s no direct measure of how many companies are moving plants from the United States to Mexico. When we look at outsourcing through official metrics (imports, foreign direct investment, and the number of U.S. business housed in a certain country), Mexico places near the top but not at the top. Experts said China was the top outsourcing destination.

Globalization Forces Major Change In Business Classification System: One Result Will Be That Imports From Manufacturers That Have Outsourced Production Offshore Will No Longer Be Considered Imports - Manufacturing & Technology News
U.S. federal agencies involved in economic data are on the verge of a major and transformative change in the way they classify companies that have outsourced their U.S. production to foreign manufacturing contractors. The change could radically increase U.S. production statistics by classifying "factoryless goods producers" as domestic manufacturers. Companies like Apple will no longer be considered "wholesale traders," and their sales would be counted as U.S. production, even though none of their manufacturing is in the United States.
