Buy American: What Does It Mean in Today's Global Marketplace?

Friday, February 20, 2009Buy American: What Does It Mean in Today's Global Marketplace

You might drive a Ford that was assembled in Mexico, or a Toyota from Georgetown, KY. The steel going into that new construction project might be from China, but distributed by an American company. Or, the shirt you are wearing could be made from cotton grown in Georgia and put together by stitchers in California. So are they all American products? If not, what constitutes "made in America" and does buying American made products hurt or help the US economy? These and many other questions have been bandied about lately due to a "Buy American" clause in the stimulus package. So, we thought we'd try and get a little clarification. Join us on Friday when we discuss the ins and outs of buying American made products in a global economy. And call us with your questions.
