eldavojohn writes “Bloomberg Businessweek has an article of interest resulting from a three-hour interview with Foxconn founder Terry Gou (single page), whose company manufactures 137,000 iPhones a day. The article profiles Gou’s rise to Foxconn but also offers some interesting tidbits you might not know. On why he is not opening factories in the United States, Gou frankly states, ‘If I can automate in the US and ship to China, cost-wise it can still be competitive. But I worry America has too many lawyers. I don’t want to spend time having people sue me every day.’ If you’re interested in how a modern day Henry Ford thinks, you can read the rest about the man steering the ship of the world’s largest producer of electronics components and China’s largest exporter. This unprecedented transparency was part of an agreement Gou made with his customers during his delayed response to an increasing number of Foxconn suicides.”
