...Since CFL production is a hazmat hazard, there also might have been extra expenses to ensure worker safety here. They would be able to skimp on those things in poorly regulated countries.
...And of course, the wages and benefits the workers in China get would be far less than what an American worker would be satisfied with.
...Lastly, I'm not sure if they actually do this, but they might buy the equipment in a foreign currency.
