Wale, 

"'investors will always think of recouping their money and making profits' irrespective of any circumstance."

Is that why you asked me if I had experience in banking or investing? :) I think it's just pure business logic. Business is business and it will always be business.

Thanks, Anna.

Then why the option in the poll? I believe it's a business startegy, but not precisely connected with PR.

@Ariella, that mindset is actually helping company's sustainability, fight competitor(s) and that also keep managers on their toes against reckless spending.

@Wale yes, that's integral to the capitalistic model.

Few weeks back i watched a BBC's reality TV show - Dragon's Den. One of the investors told an aspiring enterpreneur who came to pitch his business said, 'investors will always think of recouping their money and making profits' irrespective of any circumstance.

I agree with your analysis. I don't think there is a patriotic motives involved when it comes to Apple. It is simply a business strategy. As indicated by majority votes, I being one, it may well be a business strategy to eliminate negative PR. It's not clear now, but will with time.

Thanks, Ashish. Yes, it helps. 

That's what I thought. (Read my comments to HH below) Maybe I have to Bolaji why this "patriotic move" came up as an option in the poll. I would now like to know what the ones who voted for it say about this.

Why, Wale? Are you suggesting there is poetry in it?

>>We will get high quality engineered products<<

Has Apple once ever produced/manufactured low quality products since it became 'top brand' name in the world? Be it made in India or made in China Apple's iproducts - Apple is known as Apple simply  because its electronics designs are often on the edge. Moving its Mac back to the US for me according to their importance: (1) nothing can be described like that than creation of more jobs in the US (2) to cancel out negative image.
