There will never be enough of an incentive to bring jobs home as long as folks in Asia are working for 10 cents on the dollar, unless Americans were also willing to accept working 10 cents on the dollar.

Instead we should penalize them for shipping jobs overseas, make it harder for them to do so.

Actually what business needs is an administration that is not patently anti-business.

The corporations already create plenty of jobs, overseas.

yep its simple

1. eliminate/sharply reduce the CORPORATE TAX
2. install/increase import tarrifs on ALL IMPORTS...to include USA companies that make their stuff in mexico (like GE)
3. eliminate the IRS and the income tax...go with a consumption tax..... Americans For Fair Taxation: Americans For Fair Taxation
4. mandate an equaling of property tax rates (having corporate/commersial rates being higher than residental rates is not fair...property is property be it residential or commersial)
5. set a standard for utility rates

I have thought for years that they need to put extremely high taxes on companies outsourcing. If they tax enough, either the jobs will come back here or the tax income will help. Either way, more money is staying here in the US where it is needed.

That would be because labor there is dirt cheap, and buyers here the greatest fools. Couple that to the fact that they can bring home the money and be taxed less on it (if at all) without conditions, why would they bring home those jobs? They've got consumers here, third world cheap labor and low cost of living there. Besides, so what if there might not be much consumerism left in America as it turns into a third world country? Those running the show would be long dead with millions, if not billions hoarded away for their families... the world is quite big after all, to put it all to good use.

Actually no. What I really prefer is to treat formerly US companies that are now foreign companies like foreign companies. That means heavy tarrifs on the products they try to sell in the American market place. We still have the biggest and best market place in the world. We need to use that as leverage to protect and boost American workers.
