Why Is It So Important to Buy American Made Products?


Why is it so important to buy American Products? I mean the Chinese products are way cheaper. Isn’t it better for consumers to buy the cheapest products? Why should I buy American made Products when they are so expensive? All of these are good questions and valid ones in an economic environment which is fair and everyone follows the global rules.

But, for decades, since the 1970s every country has been dumping cheap and subsidized products onto the U.S. market which has cost millions of jobs in the U.S.A. The companies like Apple and Dell have taken advantage of low cost labor and lax regulations and environmental rules to maximize their profits. They and many other companies like them have moved factories offshore, which also means that well paying American Jobs have also been off-shored. There has been a systematic gutting of the U.S. Industrial base.

The other countries have allowed their labor to be exploited by these corporations. This has proved to be disastrous for both the people of the U.S.A and cheap labor countries.

We all are consumers in a market economy. We all vote with our money every day when we choose one product over another. We can vote in favor of the U.S.A and the U.S. Jobs when we spend our hard earned money on American made products. This is why you should buy American made products.
