Does "Made in America Matter"?
America’s Industrial Revolution defined the 18th and 19th Centuries in the United States. Economist would say it was the most important event in the history of humanity and impacted every aspect of life. It gave birth to manufacturing, new materials and power systems, numerous inventions, and the modern capitalist system that created a growing standard of living.
Let’s face the whole truth though. Made in America has meant many things since then. Back in days of planned obsolescence in the 20th Century, American made products often were inferior in quality, frankly they were designed to fail and get the consumer to buy more.
That led American companies to leave a big car door open for manufacturers outside the U.S. to sell better made products that were cheaper. Rather than make the U.S. product better and more affordable to compete with foreign manufacturers, many American companies gave up making stuff and went to faraway places to have things made.
Yes, things got cheaper, and cheaper, And things seem to be good for Americans.
Or at least until consumers figured out what they bought often was junk, unsafe, or didn’t work. Just another version of planned obsolesce.
The neat thing about the American spirit is that we are always working to figure things out when a new challenge confronts us. Today the U.S. is experiencing a resurgence of U.S. manufacturing because consumers recognize great quality and affordability can best be bought in America.
Now days “Made in America” stands for:
High Quality standards and it works
Good Value for your buck and affordable
Safe, non-toxic and meets stringent safety guidelines
Made with high ethical standards for workers and customers
Reliable service from people you can trust
Creating jobs in America
A resurgence of American pride and patriotism
Green, Clean and kind to the planet
Cutting edge Leadership in products, that are Built to Last
Maybe the late, great Walt Disney said it best about what America stands for:
If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started by a mouse.
And we'd say, Only in America!
