ABSTRACT
A value chain is a core concept of manufacturing economics. Yet, business reporters often misuse the concept when discussing global outsourcing in electronic equipment manufacturing. This confusion is, fortunately, correctable with one big insight: There are two distinct strategies for improving a firm's value chain. Once these strategies are clarified, it exposes the problems with today's policy debate about outsourcing.
