Is "Buying American" a Redistribution of Wealth?
I was thinking the other day what with the term "redistribution" becoming a dirty word, I am wondering, does the purposeful seeking of U.S. made products for purchase at a higher price than a similar or equal quality product made abroad costing less represent to you a redistribution of wealth? Would you be willing to "Buy American" knowing it strengthens the US economy... Or does it really? Is the diminished purchasing capacity offset by an overall strengthening of the broader economy? I value the sarcasm around here but also the intellect once you sand off the acerbic veneer. So answer thoughtfully as well. Thanks....
