Offshoring vs Reshoring

There was an interesting article last month in Forbes about how manufacturing costs are really rather irrelevant for niche products. Link here. Makes a lot of sense.

And now we have another interesting case about a similar theme. It's Harley Davidson this time. Link here.

Its good that we have swung back from the extreme. Hope the bandwagon doesn't go the other way now. We already saw Google / Motorola try domestic manufacturing with some of their electronics (Moto X, Nexus Q)...didn't really work it looks like.
