Made in America makes a comeback - CNN.com

Thanks to the resilience of U.S. workers and businesses of all sizes, "Made in America" is making a comeback.

According to data released last week by the Department of Commerce, American businesses exported $2.35 trillion in goods and services in 2014, hitting a record high for the fifth straight year. The United States sold more to our 20 free trade partners than ever before and logged record exports to more than 50 overseas markets.

This is good news all around -- for our economy, workers and wages. After all, U.S. exports have been one of the primary drivers of America's economic resurgence, contributing one-third of our economic growth since 2009 and supporting 11.3 million jobs in 2013. With those jobs paying up to 18% more, on average, than jobs not related to exports, trade promotion has an important role to play in boosting the incomes of middle class Americans.

Yet America's recovery remains incomplete, and unfair foreign practices are threatening our progress. Today, many of our workers are competing against counterparts in countries that lack basic labor rights. Meanwhile, some foreign governments are further skewing the playing field by providing subsidies and encouraging competition without concern for the environment.

At stake is not merely America's status as a place that makes real things, but more fundamentally, the strength of our middle class and the sanctity of our values.

This is, of course, all Obama's fault.

Discuss.

I credit the bravery of American business owners to risk it all in spite of the dumb ass stupid fucks in government doing everything they can to wreck U.S. businesses with taxes, fees, Obamacare, regulations, etc. As for U.S. workers they will out think and out produce any workforce in the world. The U.S.A. rocks!!

This is the dirty little secret that no one wants to talk about. We middle class consumers have TREMENDOUS power that no one wants us to use. Call it the power of the purchase.

IF the American consumer simply said that they would not spend their money on ANYTHING that wasn't made in America, besides the initial slowdown in the economy, what do you think would happen?

On top of that, it is the Chinese who are opening up quite a large number of business's here in the USA.

Guess those hated corporate taxes don't look so bad to the Chinese. They (the Chinese) understand the power of the American consumer. We are still number one in the consumption department.

People would point and laugh at you...because it is absolutely impossible unless you live in a cave somewhere.
