Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Over in the Breakfast thread we were discussing the possibility that Peugeot would move the plant to Slovakia, so the jobs are definitely not "going home" to France.

If the plant is profitable, it might be a question of opportunity cost. It might be more profitable elsewhere.

If Peugeot expects most of future sales to be in Eastern Europe, the "logistical costs" will be reduced by moving production, not to speak of lower labour costs.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
