Because of all the Mexicans we have here. An', there isn't a "Festivus Pole" union. Could you imagine the cost if the UFT had to manufacture something?

Sorry, it's not the unskilled labor rate that the Europeans are finding attractive. Our skilled labor rate is a bargain -- once you factor in the value of the dollar -- and our fuel costs are still lower than theirs.

As long as it doesn't require any critical thinking, only repetitive mindless labor, I think we're safe.

Thanks for your persistence..... I think that you will find lots of good information.... the book was designed to focus on not just the entrepreneurial individual (someone wnating sart their own import/export business, but also the firm or rather a business who is interested in expanding the operations of their existing business.

Check the chapter out on Export Marketing research and Finding Customers... lots of good free information readily available online....

Also.... if you need any help or have any questions, you can email or contact me directly.

Good luck...... and I am glad you found it......

in today's collection - hopefully it fits-


Nothing changes
 
 The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled,
 public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should
 be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands
 should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt.
 People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.'
 -- Cicero , 55 BC
