So William will we be seeing more our red white and blue then reading green tonight.
Not yet have there things are looking up in the US but we're not going to replace all those low skilled manufacturing jobs that went to China right away.
But there are a lot of these sites dozens of shopping sites dedicated products specifically.

Compared to a low skilled manufacturing job in the US where that -- gonna pay.
2000 dollars a month in all likelihood.
However wages in China are expected to increase by up to 30%.
By 2015 that's gonna eliminate some of their competitive advantage.
Also in some businesses like furniture fabricated metals plastics some electronics.

But in the global economy you know we are just completing -- China but Vietnam in Mexico.
And we still have an edge in highly skilled manufacturing like aerospace and heavy equipment but do not expect that we're gonna see a return to say fifty years ago.
When 28% of our jobs in the US for manufacturing jobs compared to just.
But things are looking up and if we start thinking this way.
That could lead to more of us thinking hey you know if there is a by USA store.
For Christmas you'd be more inclined to go in that I think.
Rather than just online sales that are -- agreed good way -- think there thank you very much we appreciate it like much that's going live for us.
