Economix Blog: Facebook Chat About the ‘iEconomy’ Series

On Thursday at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Charles Duhigg will join an hourlong Facebook conversation about The iEconomy, a series that examines challenges posed by increasingly globalized high-tech industries. The chat will take place on The New York Times’s Facebook page: facebook.com/nytimes.

The first article in the series, published on the front page of Sunday’s newspaper, provided a detailed look at the reasons that manufacturing jobs at Apple were drawn overseas, and are likely to stay there. The second article examines labor conditions inside Foxconn, one of Apple’s most important manufacturing partners.
