Made in America Re-dux?

Hmm. Spoke with enough mannies out there to call it a trend: Seems manufacturers with high-quality products are re-thinking having their products made in Asia and are moving production back into the States and Europe. That's good for the consumer and the economy. Between the distance, the language and lack of handed-down-for-generations tradesmanship, the quality is suffering. The 25 percent savings in cost is not very attractive when complaints are up 100 percent. And imagine that, retailers are kvetching -- since they don't want to take on the additional headaches.
