I am confused why it would COST 2x to the consumer. It's two times the cost of manufacture, but as I have read the manufacturing cost is actually quite low and most of the cost of an iPhone has to do with the premium paid for the Apple name.

2x a small number is often still a small number.

On the other hand, if he can get his corporate income tax cut passed, we'll see a resurgence of manufacturing in the US.


First, you're pushing a myth. The tax rate is high because they get so many deductions, but their actual paid taxes are lower than they every have been. The corporations with the best tax lawyers have an affective NEGATIVE rate in many cases.

Secondly, the only way manufacturing is ever coming back to the US is if the labor pool because the virtual slave labor pool of China, India, and other parts of the 3rd world. If that's what you hope for then screw you, you're part of the problem.
