Re: Buying Local

Take that mentality to a global scale and you now have the recipe for the downfall of America. We all thought the same, why not buy from Wal-Mart and other stores that carried goods made in China as they are way less expensive and just as good? Fast forward 40 years and China now owns a huge chunk of our debt and we have a huge diminishment of the middle class because manufacturing is only a shadow of what it once was.

If possible, I would prefer to buy local to support people in my community. If we only think about buying the cheapest we are not always serving ourselves.
