Do we have anything similar in the United States? Consider the breakdown of the $10,000 you pay for a General Motors' LeMans. $3,000 to South Korea for labor and assembly. $1,850 to Japan for engines, transaxles, and electronics. $700 to Germany for styling and design engineering. $400 to Taiwan, Singapore, and Japan for small components. $250 to Britain for advertising and marketing services. $50 to Ireland and Barbados for data processing. $4,000 goes to strategists in Detroit, lawyers, bankers, lobbyists, insurance and health care workers all over the country and to General Motors shareholders all over the world. The suppliers listed here are not all independent companies operating at arm's length but are corporate subsidiaries, joint ventures, or suppliers that have agreed to a longterm arrangement to provide products or services. Together they make up a global network of interdependent companies that repeatedly deal with each other across borders.
