Buying America Back

A Real Deal Blueprint for Restoring American Prosperity

by Alan Uke

Book Image Not Available
Overview
The trade gap between the United States and China is a perennial news staple. Our commonplace goods are manufactured in such far-flung places as Honduras, Mexico, and Korea. Why has the distinction “Made in America” become such a rarity? The cynics always talk about the “hard economic realities” of our times. They suggest that American manufacturing has reached the end of its road; this is the price we pay for “globalization”. Alan Uke sees it differently. Buying America Back outlines his plan to turn back the tide with a grass-roots movement to promote American industry by helping American consumers have a better understanding of where their goods (and services) come from. Buying America Back emphasizes the importance of grooming a culture of informed consumers in the U.S.A., while reinforcing this with initiatives from the federal government. Surprising and enlightening, Buying America Back encourages us to take action to do our part as responsible consumers and conscientious citizens. American prosperity is not a thing of the past, and this book shows us the way back!
Description
The trade gap between the US and China is a perennial news staple. Our commonplace goods are manufactured in such far-flung places as Honduras, Mexico, and Korea. Why has the distinction “Made in America” become such a rarity? The cynics always talk about the “hard economic realities” of our times. They suggest that American manufacturing has reached the end of its road; this is the price we pay for “globalization”. Alan Uke sees it differently, and Buying America Back outlines his plan to turn back the tide with a grass roots movement to help American industry by helping American consumers have a better understanding of where their goods (and services) come from. Buying Back America emphasizes the importance of grooming a culture of self-informed consumers in the USA, and reinforcing this with initiatives from the federal government. Mr. Uke, a former congressional candidate himself, has got some attention for this movement in Washington on both sides of the aisle. As a successful entrepreneur, his company Underwater Kinetics has been in business for 41 years and employs 200 people, he is well versed in the problems facing American manufacturing. Buying America Back will surprise and enlighten you. Hopefully, it will also encourage you to take action to serve your small part as a responsible consumer and a conscientious citizen. Alan Uke’s message is a blueprint to help this nation regain the economic prosperity that our parents and grand-parents once enjoyed.
