The Trump Effect

2016 - 11 - 28


Markets worry about president-elect’s trade policy would be bad for Apple. Trump has publicly stated that he would force Apple to move its manufacturing back to U.S.


1. 川普想讓蘋果回流美國製造及組裝
2. 川普請蘋果創造美國工人就業機會
3. 川普想對中國進口貨物課反傾銷稅
4. 川普想對企業調降海外盈餘匯回稅


縱然搬回美國製造在財務上所大幅增加的人工成本(不論是否轉嫁消費者)尚不致於讓Apple進入負毛利,美國依舊找不出任何一個地方能生出那麼大量的skilled labor來建廠。

(3) 會帶來兩種效應,一是逼使iPhone搬去印度組裝(Foxconn在那兒佈局甚早,郭董是早就預測到了川普會上嗎?),二是中國對美企進行報復(各國企早已開始的「去IOE」(IBM, Oracle, EMC) 已經讓這些老牌B2B的IT廠很慘了,這下再燒到B2C的庫克,他想,萬一日後iPhone在中國被禁售…..)

(4) 確有可能。但是想用它來當誘因,拱Apple執行(1)(2),一樣機會渺茫。

Trump-Tsai call Complicates U.S-China Dynamics

It happened two days ago but we haven’t written any comments because most of the mass media, U.S media included, haven’t figured out why Trump took the call, breaking all precedents, and tweeted about it. 事情發生了兩天,我們都未評論;是因為包括美國在內的各大主流媒體,都還沒想明白川普不僅破例接了蔡總統的電話、更主動發了兩則推特的盤算,究竟是什麼。大家放上頭條忙著分析了半天,有講跟沒講一樣。以下為我們的看法:…
