Why We Should Buy American
POSTED ON NOVEMBER 3, 2011 BY Attorney George Wolfe
Kudos to ABC’s Sharyn Alfonsi for recently airing a subject I have been advocating for 25 years. It is apparent to me that when we buy exclusively imports in large numbers, collectively we may lose jobs, tax revenue, and wealth. Nevertheless, in these hard times Americans and institutions continue to buy and promote products without regard to their country of origin.
In this story, reporter Alfonsi reveals that each year, college students spend $800 each on average for back to school items. Colleges promote companies selling imported products. If 3 million students bought $800 worth of US made products, it would create 500,000 jobs and $46 Billion in revenue for US companies. If we all paid attention to how we spend money, there would be less demand for tax increases or budget cuts. So, my friends, pay attention to those labels. Take some extra time to research your purchases. Send feedback to merchants.
