People want the best deal they can get for their money. Most people never look to see where a product is made. If it is a good price, they will buy it. More and more people are willing to sacrifice quality for cost. That is not to say that all American made products are better or more expensive than foreign products however you usually get what you pay for. Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware.

I try to buy made in the USA products that is why I rarely shop at walmart. YES, your pay more for US made products, you can thank the unions for that, however, the quality is much better. shop on line at Made in the USA websites...our family does!
We got tired of throwing our hard earned money away on buying cheap foreign junk! Also, I rather support our people (and I dont mean the rich union mob bosses) with jobs so they can feed their families.

I consider myself to be patriotic. I always bought American but then realized that doing so keeps funding the unions which I consider at this point in time to be a detriment to this country. Now I buy everything foreign that I can. The cycle has to be broken b4 its too late. Has anybody checked out detroit lately? Utica, and dozens of other once great cities. Things aint gettin better folks and its not all Bushes fault no matter what you read on huff post. Times getting short...

I agree. And I am more than willing to pay more for a product made in the USA. I also try to seek out the smaller business. I look locally first, then try on-line. Etsy is a great resource as well and you can see where the business is located.

If all Americans started buying American made products and supporting their local merchants most of our financial problems would get better. American manufacturing would have to hire more people because of the demand. Economics 101 unfortunately our politicians are nitwits.
