GE reduces outsourcing, adds technology jobs | Business | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

Good start, I hope this trend continues. Its a pain to wait for someone halfway around the world to do something.

GE was probably facing public pressure since its CEO Jeff Immelt is on President Obama's economic advisory board while simultaneously cutting America jobs through outsourcing.

Good point. Immelt needs to do something to reinvigorate GE stock.

Old news, but still good news. Hasn't done much good for my GE stock though. Unfortunately, most decisions made by large corporations are based on the impact they will have on short term stock prices. I think this is one reason GE has gone the conglomerate route... They want something to generate cash quickly while their consumer product manufacturing division can slowly reshore and retool. It will take awhile for the profits to pick up from this strategy, but the other divisions should help meet investors short term goals.

I hope you're being sarcastic.

Let their governments build infrastructure to nurture businesses in their own countries instead of sucking off the teats of ours that our taxpayers paid for with our tax money.
