I wonder what the plan B is of Tim Cook, supposed supply chain genius...

This should keep the supply chain people up at night, perhaps it is only the inevitable outcome of an emerging economy trying to evolve. Couple this with a totalitarian regime and such a rapid influx of capital into China from North America and Europe, which caused such chaos in manufacturing and subsequent loss of jobs, maybe it's time to rethink how best to protect your business?

Those are wise words Bruce. The world is changing fast and I don't think the old ideas will work too well in light of how quickly places and economies come unglued.
