GE still talking up idea of bringing home manufacturing. I hope it works.
Did the CEO give you a consumer breakdown, or marketing numbers? (I assume we are going beyond washers and dryers, however...for the purposes of discussion...)
How many buyers want innovation?
How many buyers want product differentiation?
What is the cost?
(What about price?)
How long will it take to begin to make a profit?
Any thoughts on market penetration with the new, innovative, and differentiated products?
Having broken even, they are now where they were 10 years ago. Do they have the money to invest?
What innovations have taken place over the past ten years?
Does the public want these innovations or did they buy the item based on price, brand loyalty, pre-approved credit, or other considerations?
Whose idea was it to bring manufacturing back to the U.S.?
Now we delve into the empirical method of analysis:
Did that person do the study and arrive at the conclusion that this will have a positive effect. (More Jobs...as opposed to running the company down and causing more people to lose their jobs?)
Did that person come up with an idea, is now trying to sell the idea, and is out seeking the metaphorical "yes men" to supply the company with the numbers they want to see?
(Did they hire a consultant? :-p) lol
