Are U.S. Production Companies Becoming Scarce?
We're just a few days beyond the Chamber of Commerce's "Celebrate Local" event at the Tuscaloosa River Market, and this is on the front page of the Wall Street Journal:
One of the main headlines describes how U.S.-Made Goods are scarce. There is a line which mentions Chinese imports. Anyone who has researched any type of goods to operate a business, from promotional materials to the actual production of merchandise to be sold, has found it cheaper to have items produced and imported from China than to produce them in the U.S.
However, there are a number of businesses in the U.S. which actually provide goods to other countries. One of which is Mercedes Benz U.S. International in Vance. Some of the vehicles made here in Alabama are sold across the globe, and this is the only place where they are produced. The same applies to other car manufacturers.
What other products can you name which are made in America and primarily sold and used in the U.S.?
