The trade off here is whether the stuff made in America has quality that is as good or better than what is being made in other countries. I'm all about supporting American manufacturing, but only if the product is good. I'm willing to pay more for American made, but not if the quality isn't on par with what I can get elsewhere. I'm not buying garbage just because it's made in America....
I'm with you on that one. I don't mind paying for "Made in America" products, it's not so much about the quality to me, but more about there needs to be some pride/craftsmanship of the product too
. Not, "Hey, they want American, let's just pop out some of this & that as cheaply and fast as possible!" No, I would prefer "Hey, they chose American over Foriegn, let's give them something to make the competition jealous and wow the consumer!"
Let's take Japan for example (yeah, I know, I know, Asia is not a great topic of discussion right now..
), the Japanese are extremely proud people, who have a system of honor in everthing they create. That's why they try to excell, the "creator's" reputation is everything.
