Confused

Lincolnton, NC

#1 Feb 16, 2012
How come plants like this open but yet we never see any stores that sell the products they make.

I recently saw in Walmart they were selling the local Lucky Country Licorice with a sign saying MADE IN LINCOLNTON, NC on the front. Its funny for as "evil and big box terrorizing" walmart is suppose to be its THE ONLY STORE I seen selling something that is supposely made in Lincolnton.

How come we dont have like a Big Dog Store downtown, I been to the one at the beach we got the whole plant here but no store...why?

I am just confused that everytime they annouce a company moving here to build stuff...but where do they sell the stuff they build?

There's no market for the product here and believe me when I tell you this...that is a good thing. You want to manufacture product locally and sell it far away so that your local econony is always bringing in dollars from somewhere else to keep your citizens working.

When you see all the bailouts of Portugal or Greece, do you notice that it's mostly the Germans doing the bailing? It's because they manufacture things like Mercedes benz and BMW automobiles and sell them for way more than they are worth to foreigners. It's the proper way to run an economy. Our problem is that we consume too much foreign crap that we don't need and it takes jobs from the people down the street and sends those jobs to places like China and Germany. Our country will continue to decline until people learn to save their money instead of buying things they don't need and start buying things made locally and spending their money in local businesses so that their friends and fanmily have jobs that pay a living wage.
