The world of consumer products, which includes everything that you and I buy and use every day, is a lot more complicated than it used to be. It’s not as simple as American-made products and foreign-made products anymore.
At a time when the world economy is exceptionally chaotic, and the US is running record-breaking trade deficits every quarter, an American consumer wanting to buy American-made products to support our jobs and our economy needs to learn to ask the right questions… and more of them.
Not just, “Where is this made?”
“Where was this engineered and designed?”
“Where is this company headquartered?”
“Where is this company’s parent company headquartered?”
“Where do these materials come from?”
And a lot more.
We’re engineers and product designers who spend our professional lives filling up those store shelves. Some of those things are made in America, and some of them are not-so-much-so… but now we’re also here to try to educate our fellow consumers and simplify the process of buying “more American” for those that want to.
