    I think that was the old Circuit City house brand made overseas. OK, went the their website. They lists several TVs in various catagories, then have a separate catagory for "Assembled in Detroit" with nothing listed, so maybe they are currently Chinese and moving to America for their assembly. Apparently the same company that sells the TV's in WalMart.

    My understanding is that though they have an office in America, they are actually a Korean company...

    Not that it matters to me... :rolleyes:

    Its all rather moot, since most all the parts are still going to come from overseas. I dont think there are any flat panel manufacturers in the USA, unless they plan to make their own panels in Detroit too.

    Part of the numbers are american companies sending it to other countries in which it is processed and then shipped back as an import. Our other major exports are oil with other raw materials and military hardware with training.

    I wonder how it can be cheaper? Oh thats right, the USA got rid of slave labor. Until the rest of the world catches up, you'll never be able to compete with slave labor, period!

    Great...
    Well,
    I know I read somewhere that supporters want to introduce legislation in Michigan to change that state to a "right to work" state.

    Here in Pa., we lost a lot of jobs to southern "right to work" states, [ that is if they weren't sent overseas ]

    So, if that happens [ I realy doubt it, tho] it'll be cheaper labor in Michigan.
