You often hear buy American, but what does it mean and why does it matter? Aside from the obvious benefits of quality, value, better warranties, superior customer service and support, it matters because money you spend here gets pumped into our economy and re-spent again and again within our economy producing jobs and income. That’s known as the multiplier effect and can result in multiplying every dollar you spend by six or seven dollars pumped into our economy.
We have bilateral and multilateral agreements with many countries that maintain fair trade practices and a level playing field in trade. Trading with friendly democracies in North and South America, and British Commonwealth Countries, like UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada is like buying Made in USA products.
Buy American? YES! Buy from your Friends? Yes! And know who your friends are! Buying from unfriendly nations puts our financial wellbeing and safety at risk.
