The trade gap between the United States and China is a perennial news staple. Our commonplace goods are manufactured in such far-flung places as Honduras, Mexico, and Korea. Why has the distinction “Made in America” become such a rarity? The cynics always talk about the “hard economic realities” of our times. They suggest that American manufacturing has reached the end of its road; this is the price we pay for “globalization."
Alan Uke sees it differently. Buying America Back outlines his plan to turn back the tide with a grass-roots movement to promote American industry by helping American consumers have a better understanding of where their goods (and services) come from. Buying America Back emphasizes the importance of grooming a culture of informed consumers in the U.S.A., while reinforcing this with initiatives from the federal government. Mr. Uke, a former congressional candidate himself, is in the process of creating a congressional initiative for more accurate product labeling to help consumers have a detailed understanding of the component parts of their products come from, (not simply the “country of origin” point of assembly). Copies of this book will be handed out to members of Congress as part of this campaign.
Surprising and enlightening, Buying America Back encourages us to take action to do our part as responsible consumers and conscientious citizens. American prosperity is not a thing of the past, and this book shows us the way back!
