    XI’AN, China — For years, many of China’s best and brightest left for the United States, where high-tech industry was more cutting-edge. But Mark R. Pinto is moving in the opposite direction.

    Mr. Pinto is the first chief technology officer of a major American tech company to move to China. The company, Applied Materials, is one of Silicon Valley’s most prominent firms. It supplied equipment used to perfect the first computer chips. Today, it is the world’s biggest supplier of the equipment used to make semiconductors, solar panels and flat-panel displays.

    Xi’an — a city about 600 miles southwest of Beijing known for the discovery nearby of 2,200-year-old terra cotta warriors — has 47 universities and other institutions of higher learning, churning out engineers with master’s degrees who can be hired for $730 a month.

    President Obama has often spoken about creating clean-energy jobs in the United States. But China has shown the political will to do so

    Will Boeing move to Beijing? - DailyFinance

    Boeing (BA) CEO Jim McNerney is eager to move the company to China. Whether moving Boeing to China means shifting its headquarters from Chicago to Beijing is up in the air. But Boeing already has $600 million in supplier partnerships with China -- such as a deal with Shenyang Aircraft Corporation to build an assembly for the 787's vertical fin. And Stan Sorscher, who spent 20 years at Boeing before taking a post at the Society of Professional Engineers in Aerospace (SPEEA) in 2000, told me that engineers he spoke with believe that McNerney is hooked on the idea of shifting more of Boeing's aircraft development to China.

    Why Engineering is Moving Offshore

    by Alan S. Brown

    While the numbers are hard to pin down, there is no doubt that more and more engineering is moving abroad from the United States.

    Engineering jobs have followed the factories that began moving to countries like China and Mexico in the 1990s. Major corporations have built gleaming new engineering and R&D centers in India and Eastern Europe. These facilities are aggressively seeking the best students and the most accomplished local engineers.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Soon, we will have zero manufacturing. So much for the "free market".

    China is pro-growth. The Obama regime is not.

    The Republicans are not. When do you think all those jobs moved to China. Why did Bush created that 2.4 trillion dollar tax cut? So that money could be used to move American Jobs to China. New factories are expensive to build.

    I have no idea why Republicans love Communist China. They claim they hate our president for being a communist, yet they build up China and tear down this country.

    Someone, anyone, please give me a single Republican policy to bring jobs here or keep jobs here. We both know you won't be able to.

    democrats should stay out of economic discussions. It's really not fair to bring a butter knife to a gun fight.

    The EPA is responsible for the loss of a manufacturing base in the US.

    And they're just getting started.

    Unfair Chinese trade and currency practices caused the loss of as many as 2.4 million U.S. jobs between 2001 and 2008, according to a study released on Tuesday.

    Unfair China Trade Costs Local Jobs

    Unfair China Trade Costs Local Jobs
    Robert E. Scott
    March 23, 2010

    The computers, electronic equipment, and parts industries experienced the largest growth in trade deficits with China, leading with 627,700 (26%) of all jobs displaced between 2001 and 2008. As a result, the hardest hit Congressional districts were located in California and Texas, where remaining jobs in those industries are concentrated, and in North Carolina, which was hard hit by job displacement in a variety of manufacturing industries.

    -------------------

    You sit in front of the Internet. Go learn something true. Bush gutted the EPA and replaced OSHA with Voluntary Compliance in 2002.

    It won't be many going, China produces 8x the number of engineers that we do.

    The EPA is more determined than ever to crush US manufacturing, under Obama.

    But, hey, start a trade war with a country that paid for your "stimulus" and see what happens next.
