Wal Mart is trying to do a "Made in America" push. Would you pay a bit more to buy a product "Made in America"?

At one time, Proudly Made in the USA as a "Wal Mart" staple. Then, after Sam Walton died, it became "All China" products, or so it seemed. Now their corporation seems to be pushing to restore American manufacturing. Would you pay a bit more for a product knowing it was made in the USA and thus helping support our infrastructure with taxes and spending domestically?

I buy what I can afford. If I can't afford it, then it doesn't matter to me where it's made.

Honestly it would depend on how much higher it was. I proudly support America and American made products but my bank account is only so big.

As a profound Wal Mart hater I probably would not go there. I think this is a step in the right direction for them however. But how would we really KNOW these products were made in the USA? They could have a special warehouse just for exchanging the China labels for USA labels. I guess that's how much I distrust Wal-Mart! In other stores I try to buy things made in the USA. It really IS the only way we will straighten out our economy, give our people jobs and not be dependent on inferior and possibly toxic products.

I'm all for things being made in America, but I'm not going to not buy something simply because it isn't. I buy affordable quality, end of story.

I think it's a good idea, but it depends on the price really. I'm not exactly the most financially well off. I would figure it would still be affordable since it's Walmart though.

Is the foreign made thing the reason for your "profound hate"?

Yes, but no American worker is going to be grinding out anything in a factory for 80 cents a day.

Because there is government oversight.

Frankly, made in America means nothing. Just because a product is manufactured within arbitrary borders does not make it better or worse than a product from another set of arbitrary borders. It is quality that matters. If a Chinese firm can make a sex toy at the same quality of an American firm but at half the cost, I’m buying the Chinese toy. It all boils down to what real economists understand as Subjective Theory of Value. If someone values the MinA product enough, they will pay a higher price for it. If they don’t they will buy the less expensive product, or not buy at all and save. For those who might be interested, I’ll link to an excellent page that will help explain what I mean more in depth. - C
