Newslink:How important is it to you to buy products made in America? /Consumer reports

How important is it to you to buy products made in America?.

From a survey done by Consumer Reports of 949 people on March 12, 2012, the results are in:

74% had tried to buy U.S.- made product in the past year.

60% said they’d always or sometimes rather buy U.S. – made good than those from another country. People 55 and over were much more likely than those 18 to 34 to feel that way.

41% of respondents who tried to buy a U.S. made product in the past year said that they couldn’t identify which ones were made in the U.S.

39% said no products in the relevant category were made in the U.S.

The last two questions are problems. On some items, there is just no way to identify where the product is manufactured. And over the years, many products are no longer made in the U.S.

The Consumer Reports also offers links to other pages such as which appliances are made in the USA and the top picks of American made cars, both articles will I post over the next two days.
