Apple’s Billions

Dear Apple,

If you’re really looking to spend some of the $23 billion in cash you have on hand, I have a proposal for you.

Rather than buying some shiny new baubles, you could do something that would be both a PR sensation and help your local economy.

Announce that all future Apple products will be Made in the USA. Not just “Designed in California” or “Assembled in the USA” but Made in the USA. If you’ve got all that money just burning a hole in your trousers, buy Foxconn and move their operations here.

Spend a few billion and build – or rebuild – your own facilities closer to home. California could certainly use the help.
