I do not think that where it is made changes if people will buy it, it is the quality of the product that people care about. It really changes a lot of things depending on the quality of the product and not on where it is made. Even if we were to make them, people would buy them, but like I said if we do not make them of the same quality people will not be buying anything.Jak Manson | http://www.finfunmermaid.com/swim-suits-and-sets/tankini-sets.html
Most Ameri ans don't care where something is made. Ask in a store and the clerk looks you like you are from another planet.Rremember that every Japanese car is cheaper in than U.S. than Tokyo. Their government subsidizes the manufacturers so they can undercut American cars. Think we won WWII, guess again. Americans are stupid ehough to buy all this imported garbage until we make nothoing here. It may be too late.
TARIFF. A simple solution to solve a debt issue and even the playing field.Wake the F___ up government!
The jobs are still going oversees. Just saw another (DEERE) building big manufacturer plants elsewhere and these stories are so commonplace, I can't even remember (where at) overseas it spoke that will get the new plant. I cringe these days when I hear through data being released that the consumer just isn't shopping. Shopping? Or, how about when the government talks about "our debt" out here. Too much of that, too!!! Now, what is that will really help this country out. Getting rid of our debt, or shopping? Someone help me because I am really confused!!!!
The story about Dell really struck a chord. A lot of corporations are relocating to get 10 years of no taxes. After the 10 years are up, they move to another state and get10 years of no taxes. After that they relocate to China, and pay very little taxes.
Have any of the high priced geniuses in our government ever considered that TARIFF is not a dirty word, not when it means our survival. Americans take profits and split them among stockholders. Chinese take profits and invest them in better technology and property, yes property in the U.S. Our economy is under attack, rigid tariffs are the only defense we have left. What will countries such as China do, retaliate? They don't buy any products that mean anything from us anyway. Companies like Walmart will just have to adjust their prices. And my fellow countrymen will have to get over the cheap ride we've enjoyed and pay the price before it's too late. Tariffs collected could be used to finance domestic production to any patriotic American merchant. For the sake of our future generations it must not be too late.
I was going to comment on this story but Claire Gordon is not as smart as she thinks she is
Have to hand it to Wal Mart in showing China how to produce things cheaply and then convincing America to buy these cheap things and allowing American jobs to go away in the meantime. brilliant business strategy. So glad all the Walton family members are worth $20 billion each or so. And they don't owe anything to this country?
Little late....the jobs are gone.!..if we try to compete now ...china will dump stuff below cost and force you under .!......then take the market back.!...with Walmart's help...yup !...Last 10-15 years ..where were your cries ?? American co. don't want a 10%-15% profit....40%-60% is much better !..greed !..it's the "new" american way !
Of course we won't buy it, we like sending our jobs overseas. I am always amazed by people who continually buy foreign made products (cars especially...what else do you spend $500/month on?), and then complain how their manufacturing job was terminated when their company set up manufacturing overseas. Sure you can save a buck on the low cost imported products, but you are BUYING yourself out of a job. I have been telling people for over 20 years that our economy cannot support itself if we lose our manufacturing jobs, and to buy American whenever they could. If you want to buy low cost imports, why do you complain when your company sets up manufacturing overseas so that they can compete for your business? Your buying habits are causing this problem! Another problem with bringing the jobs back is the lack of equipment. The Chinese and others are buying our manufacturing equipment at firesale prices and taking if out of the country. We will not have the capacity to recover our lost jobs, because we won't have the equipment here to to the job anyway.People need to look in the mirror when they complain about the economy and see who the real culprit is. If you are blatently buying imported products (how about that Lexus?), then don't complain to me when you lose your job.
