I'll admit I have mixed feelings about this research: what does the US make anymore that can be exported? The less cynical side of me says "way to go!"

I suppose once China has more disposable income it will only be the design that is done in the USA as production and order fulfilment will be done "locally" in China.  The tax and accounting implications of this will become quite interesting too.

We have already begun to see such a shift as companies look to India and Brazil as key markets not only for fulfillment but for production as well.

does the quote signify that the actual production would be taking place in India and Brazil rather than in the US? Or would it mean that they will be playing a role in the supply chain for manufacturing in the US?

This is indeed very encouraging news. I wish it creates many more hitech jobs and brings manufacturing back to America.
