Foxconn Technology Co. Ltd.’s move of its flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing plant to Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, must be held to a higher standard than its business practices in other countries if it is to be sustainable. Wisconsin’s government incentives offered to Foxconn have raised serious concerns for the citizens of the village in regards to land, water, taxes, and infrastructure. The goal of this study is to examine Foxconn’s business model of past practices in conjunction with the incentive package that it was offered and predict its effects on the surrounding communities, people and their environment.
