The guest on this week's nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money radio show is Charles Duhigg, an award-winning reporter for The New York Times and author of the new book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. Duhigg was part of the team reporting the recent story about Apple and worker conditions at the Foxconn facilities. In this audio segment Duhigg states that "40% of all electronics that you touch have been assembled by Foxconn." Thus, while the spotlight is currently on Apple, other major tech companies are involved as well. Ultimately, Duhigg believes Apple is in a position to help revolutionize the manufacturing industry.
