Exactly! That’s why it drives me nuts when people blame evil corporations. Corporate profits fall within a pretty narrow range over decades of study. They go up a little in booms and down during recessions. Companies aren’t doing things because they are greedy and trying to increase profits. They are reacting to the consumer and providing what consumers want to stay alive.
When they move production to Mexico to save money, they aren’t increasing profits. They are lowering the price of the product to keep up with competitors. Their percent profit is staying the same. If they didn’t move production, then their sales would consistently decline because few people would pay more for a product built in the US.
