Some businesses are finding that it can be economical to move manufacturing back to the USA when the "total cost of ownership" of international operations are considered. In addition to shortened supply chains, they find improved intellectual property protection, reduced travel costs, narrowing gaps between domestic and international wages, and improved efficiency in communications between development and manufacturing teams. (Bloomberg Business Week Feb 6-12, 2012, pages 17-18).

On Valentine's Day, no less. Sounds like a token gesture, but still it's encouraging to see. What a pleasant surprise it will be if the Advanced Manufacturing Office can actually get results.

Also, are 'US'(US anymore ?) BANKS helping by investing in this ? Or, do they have a conflict of interest with Indian and Chineses Dept's OF Commerce. Just 'what' are these US banks anyway ? Market driven yes, on paper and in textbooks according US politicians, but... in reality are they now Indian/Chinese/fat cat rich US elite banks ? i.e. The neighborhood friendly US bank are now historical artifacts, for Indian and Chinese gov't to laugh at as they watch the US gov't scramble to use tourism to 'show the Chinese and Indian gov't embedded H1B's a good' while they spend dollars from their US H1B jobs, in what ? US manufacturing sector ?

Intellect Property/US jobs leak quickly to Asia via internet by (1) H1B's embedded in US by Indian+Chinese gov'ts, and by (2) US corp hiring H1B's. (1) H1B's literally carry in Digital Cameras to work-SAT NEXT TO ONE,and (2) note some 'US' companies, even those classified by US gov't as US minority businesses are led/mostly staffed by Indian workers and hire a few US workers to get the contracts. MAYBE WERE TOO LATE... THEY"RE ALREADY HERE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF stateside US gov't attempts to revive US middle class ....

Is it fair to assume that any of those so-called "Advanced Manufacturing" projects in nanofabrication and automation will bring "manufacturing jobs" back to Silicon Valley?

A modest effort to revive U.S. manufacturing.
