 The value chain and relationships presented in this report is messed up. This statement while not untrue is missing the point completely:"Apple has a long way to go to ensure workers are laboring under safe and fair conditions." It should be:"*We have* a long way to go to ensure workers are laboring under safe and fair conditions." ... where We = Chinese government, China Labor Watch (the author's organization), Green America, Catcher Technologies and all their...
That's correct. I would also implement such measure if I were to open another company in China. A friend had to fire the entire team of workers and managers because they gang up together to make the book after a year+.Another friend had his money stolen by his Chinese partner overnight (and ran away).Yet another had his entire source code stolen by a staff. The latter set up a competing company taking some of my friend's customers with him.You have to find the right people...
 Apple already have the belief, people and platform to fight those things.All they need now is to work with the various governments to understand their platform(s).
 [chuckle] Possible ! May be he will scout for a writer to help write a book first. The PR Chief job with Apple sounds very hands on and intense. 
 Dalrymple is of course well connected to high level Apple folks to be so accurate over the years.He basically said 'nope' to the rumor that Carney 'was being "bandied about" as Apple's new PR chief'. Hence, not the Katie Cotton replacement. But if Bloomberg and Re/code insist that Carney did speak with Apple, then it's not unreasonable to infer that he's talking about other roles. Based on his expertise and the current challenges we know Apple face, the government team...
 Because of all the articles about repeated Government failure*s* to recognize Apple's contribution and position ? They clearly need help understanding Apple better. Apple should be proactive about it.It's not just Apple. That NSA fiasco hurt all American companies big time. I personally know of many overseas deals in assorted US companies getting stuck or rejected because of it. The press, whether it's Bloomberg or Re/code, generally don't understand Apple fully. I...
 And why would you ? Tim Cook doesn't report to you or anyone on this forum after all.
 They are separate but related. The Bloomberg and Re/code rumors may have gotten the roles mixed up. 
She may need help to tackle this on a worldwide scale.  Most large companies have a separate government and policy team (different from PR). After the stupid NSA fiasco, these teams have been busy trying to explain to foreign government that they don't work with NSA. That's another item on the dude's job description.A lobbyist don't generally have experiences dealing with these global issues.
 EC Commission, FCC and the Chinese government generally downplay or fail/refuse to recognize Apple's contribution and commitment in industrywide goals. EC Commission ignored "Ask to Buy" destined for iOS8. FCC slammed Apple *after* it has already sorted out the in-app purchase issues on its own. And the Chinese state media on various occasions accused Apple of non-existing issues. Someone like Carney would understand how these people work better. It may not be a bad idea...
