    @Harlequin: I wouldn't be so sure about transportation costs: it's true that a factory in the US probably has to import lots of goods from the Far East, but if you move your factory down there you then have to ship a large part of finished products back to the US (which is still one of the largest markets in the world). Shipping finished products costs a lot more than shipping plain components, so I doubt that's a major factor.
