Foxconn is reportedly planning to establish manufacturing plants in the U.S. and is conducting evaluations of cities such as Detroit and Los Angeles, reports DigiTimes.

Since the manufacturing of Apple's products is rather complicated, the market watchers expect the rumored plants to focus on LCD TV production, which can be highly automated and easier.

Meanwhile, Foxconn chairman Terry Guo, at a recent public event, noted that the company is planning a training program for US-based engineers, bringing them to Taiwan or China to take part in the processes of product design and manufacturing.

Foxconn is reportedly in discussions with MIT about that program.

Actually, the biggest chunk of US debt is held by ourselves, then comes mutual funds, insurance companies, and state & local governments. Then comes China, Japan, Brazil, Russia, Taiwan, Switzerland and others. Here: from a reliable source you are no doubt familiar with: This is one of the side-effects of having the reserve currency for the world: people invest in it. Oh, BTW, just to be clear: THERE IS NO DEBT CRISIS. A 'debt crisis' would be when no one wants to loan us money. The US is now getting loans at the lowest rates ever. We should now be borrowing more and fixing our infrastructure. The related economic activity and the economic activity of the people and businesses which use it will more than make up for the cost of the investment, just like when we invested in the Interstate Highway system (54 years, over 47,000 miles and a cost of over $400Billion) and the payoff is TRILLIONS in economic activity EVERY YEAR. When the economy starts to recover more we can do like Clinton did and raise taxes and start to pay down debt. As for communism... Corporate influence in our government is rampant. Public assets like roads, bridges, parks, and once government provided services are being privatized. 'Obamacare' was 'soooo bad' that you are mandated to purchase insurance -- mostly corporate. We don't even have a single-payer system like Canada! So, please provide examples of how 'communism is almost in place' because I don't see it.
