Taxes in Europe, in general, is crazy that I'd never start a business there. Scandanavia is even crazier, so if you're happy with that small happy heavily taxes and subsidized life, many other people don't. That's why most people from all over the world want to come to the US, not Denmark or whatever..

They act like savages in the name of tradition, but they ignore the fact that when they started the tradition there were thousands of whales and dolphins, no pollution, they had no machines to hunt etc.
I've stopped buying anything made there.

America is one of the worse ones, its like a 3rd world country, armed civil people on the streets, racist country and nearly a police state (thats the fact, no matter our opinion).

I for one seen the effects of the world relying on said country for cheap consumer goods and have made a change in early 2020.
Every country should be mandated to produce at least 55% of goods sold in that country by that country, outsource the rest.
Why should I be paying a mandatory carbon tax on my fuel for a vehicle that I need to get myself to my place of employment? I don't live within walking / cycling distance and there's no public transport. It's all BS is what it is.

There is a chip shortage because of the trump adminstration....he started the trade war with china...and biden didnt finish it...now china is retailiating because America wanted chipsets an even cheaper rate.

brace for higher chip price from higher production costs

US is forcing TSMC and Samsung to transfer technology to US companies and also open up customer lists for "inspection"

But go right ahead, call me a Samsung fanboy or whatever. If you didn't know Samsung has factories in China aswell.

If USA would have factories, the problem would have been a minor one in my opinion. About the raw materials as far as I know Japan is among the best here. They are very serious about this.

Mobilemaster, 23 Nov 2021It is another good news. TSMC is making a factory in Arizon... moreCorrect, we need more semiconductor factorie in different parts of the world. Its too valuable comodity to be concentrated in one country.China have a lot of room for abuse.
But even if they build the factories we still have the problem with most of the raw material coming from china.
