Hate to inform you but in the 21st century MOST things are manufactured outside of the US. The great majority of those things are made in China
So it’s okay that someone who markets herself as that good ol’ southern gal goes along with the flow and puts her name on the same ol’ Chinese garbage? What’s the point in her having a brand?
Don't be suckered by the hype. 40% of our imports come from China, with only 2.7% of consumables, which isn't even a "majority," let alone a "great majority."
A common rebuttal I got was, How can it only be 2.7% when almost everything in Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT ) is made in China? Because Wal-Marts $260 billion in U.S. revenue isnt exactly reflective of Americas $14.5 trillion economy. Wal-Mart might sell a broad range of knickknacks, many of which are made in China, but the vast majority of what Americans spend their money on is not knickknacks.
88.5% of consumables are made in the USA.
