The United States was once the manufacturing giant of the world but almost all of my daily apparel is made outside the United States, despite having domestic headquarters.

I think the United States should make sure to protect its intellectual property from foreign knock off brands if we are going to compete globally.

The manufacturing conditions of China allow companies to create a lot of products for a cheaper price, which encourages businesses to manufacture products in China.


Most customers care more about the price of a product than where their product was manufactured, including myself.
