Lure American companies back home
11 of 11
Some U.S. companies that sent jobs overseas 10 or 15 years ago are thinking about bringing them back, since a weak dollar and an oversupply of workers here has made U.S. labor costs more competitive. State and city governments could nudge some of the companies with tax breaks and other incentives to promote "onshoring." Friendly words from Washington wouldn't hurt, either.
