Question by honesty_counts: Would you pay double or more for something “MADE IN THE USA” ? (Even in this recession?)?
Everyone is talking about how this unemployment problem can be fixed by building stuff here in North America and I think that is a wonderful idea, but i remember how my mother told me about how everything was so expensive until the trade started to come in from other Asian countries, and then finally she was able to afford to buy newer clothes, not always used clothes at a thrift store ( this was a long time ago.)
So if you want to buy something made in the USA, and it cost 3-times more than a very similar item made in China and sold in Wal-Mart, would you buy it, or would you go to Wal-Mart instead?
How much of your hard-earned dollars are you willing to spend to try to support local manufacturers?
Wal-mart sells sneakers for $ 20, if I sold the exact same thing but made in America, for $ 80, how much sales would I get for my stuff ?
