re: Europe's NXP pay out misses the PE point

@Kaiser Silicon ISO-9000-CSR (corporate and social responsibility) might not be a tariff but it might be considered an "artificial barrier to trade" which is also a no-no. A bit like a customs office requiring forms in triplicate and then taking 6 months to clear consumer electronics for entry into the country. No barrier to trade their except foreign goods are just a little bit behind the times when they get on the shelves. I will leave people to guess who operates that system....please send answers to this thread. But the IS0-9000-CSR idea is interesting. Tell me more.

There is an alternative. Create an ISO-9000 sort of standard for worker protection and pollution controls, and make it plain to companies in China that if they don't comply they can't do business. It's a silly game to play, but as long as the Chinese artifically depress the value of the Yuan, it may be a necessary evil. And besides, it isn't a tariff, which is a no-no in free trade.

EU is simply cleaning back result of its gappy laws with giving some €s to "Poor" ex-workers of NXP. From very begining EU legislation would need to block such sales agreements. If they are so concerned to help on EU work force in trouble, should start with workers of GE(opel), AMD etc. What makes NXP guys so special? Anyone idea?
