"The philosophy associated with producing the world's goods and services has changed dramatically in recent years. As multi-national corporation struggle to minimize coasts while maximizing effeminacy, there has been a signifact increase in the location of manufacture facilities and jobs in foreign lands. Many firms have found it more efficient and less costly to distribute products from a facility that is in close proximity to their customer base. Other have found it more cost-effective to produce their products in places where labor is cheaper, quality higher, and government policies more favorable for doing business. Therefore, it is no longer unusual in the realm of global production for a firm to have dozens of production facilities in many different countries." Page 109
