Read about our Books

Now that the Internet can instantly connect the most far-flung locales, shopping for products that are Made in the USA is simple! All it takes is a little online research to put your values into action and help create the demand that fuels American job creation and retention.

We have compiled several umbrella categories for different manufacturing industries along with direct links to their websites. We have also included a listing of conscientious retailers that sell Made in America products.

Though we are constantly adding to our database, these lists are not exhaustive. If you cannot find what you are looking for, be sure to utilize a search engine such as Google, Bing, or Ask to locate the items you are looking for. If you find something new let us know to include it on this site!

A strong economy doesn’t create itself. There has to be a demand for products made in the U.S., crafted by American workers and artisans across all industries. Without this demand, jobs will continue to seep out to other nations with lower human rights standards and less quality and safety oversight. Without a strong job, every time our economy stumbles, it will be that much more difficult to regain our footing.

Create demand through your actions, both as a consumer and as a proactive citizen. You have the power to effectuate change through your spending choices as well as your call to others to also consider American-made choices first and foremost!

All American Wheels (paperback)

American-made automobiles and motorcycles have come a long way in the past twenty years.  According to JD Power and Consumer Reports, U.S.-made cars are equal to or superior to cars made in Europe and Japan.  Now we have cars that compete head-to-head with Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Lexus.  The new Tesla S is one of the highest-rated cars in the world and is taking market share from the luxury German carmakers.  The Cadillac ATS and CTS are state-of-the-art as well, competing with the European and Japanese luxury cars.

 

For the first time American economy cars are taking market share as well.  The Ford Focus and the Chevy Cruze are selling well all over the world.  The Dodge Dart is a world-class economy car with sports car handling. The Ford C-MAX, a very fuel-efficient hybrid, is taking market share from the Toyota Prius.

 

BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Subaru, Hyundai and Kia are assembling cars in the United States. Toyota and Honda manufacture cars in America with as many U.S. parts as GM and Ford.

With the wide variety of high-quality cars made and assembled in the United States, there is no need to import cars from Europe and Asia.  This guide includes a notation where cars are made by union workers.

American motorcycles are making a comeback too.  In addition to Harley Davidson, Darwin, Indian, Janus and Victory motorcycles are roaring back. And last but not least is the newcomer, Zero Motorcyles, a manufacturer of electric motorcycles that are quiet, efficient and beautiful.

Inequality in America: 10 Causes and 10 Cures by Joel D. Joseph

Inequality Cover Revised

Hardcover edition.  236 pages.  Everyone is talking about inequality in America. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are talking about it. Thomas Piketty’s recent book Capital in the Twenty-First Century was a best-seller. However, Piketty proposes only one solution, increased estate taxes, that will be difficult to get through Congress.

This book provides concrete ways to change the country to make it more equal, many of which have bipartisan support in Congress.

Inequality in America has reached the flash point: we are entering a new era in the United States where our children are poorer than we are. Young adults are burdened with college loans, overpriced real estate and a bad labor market. Something has to be done. Inequality in America: 10 Causes and 10 Cures has some of the answers:

  1. International Trade Reform. The persistent trade deficit that drains America of jobs and money has cost us three million jobs. The author proposes new, tougher trade deals with China and Mexico, less outsourcing (especially of government work), a new energy and environmental policy that will put solar panels and solar hot water heaters on rooftops across the nation and impose a carbon tax on Chinese imports to counteract their pollution. In addition, the author proposes actions to raise the value of the Chinese yuan which has been held at low levels to help Chinese industries. Even the conservative Peter G. Peterson Institute for International Economics has found that 40% of the income inequality in the United States is due to international trade.
  1. Social Security and Income Tax Reform. Social Security taxes are a regressive tax that tax the poor at a higher rate than the rich. The author proposes no social security tax on the first $25,000 of income, and lifting the cap. Now those earning more than $107,000 pay no additional social security taxes. In addition, the author proposes imposing social security taxes on unearned income such as capital gains. Putting these dollars back in consumers’ hands will stimulate the economy.

Income Tax Reform. Our current income tax structure exacerbates income inequality. Capital gains should be taxed the same as salaries. Taxes should be simplified. General Electric and other profitable companies must pay their fair share of income taxes. The author proposes simplifying and rationalizing income taxes, getting rid of loopholes and deductions, and having three levels of income tax: 10%, 20% and 30%, with corporations making over $1 million paying 30% as well. The author proposes reducing the tax rate on corporations so that they do not shift income offshore, and simplifying the corporate rate structure.

The book also proposed a Manufacturing Tax of Zero to bring and keep manufacturing in the United States.

  1. Limiting Executive Compensation. The pay for CEOs in the United States is out of control.  Some CEOs are now paid $100 million per year.  CEOs in Europe and Japan are not paid nearly as much. Among other reforms the author calls for mandatory votes by shareholders to approve executive compensation. Crony board members are part of the problem and the author proposes limits on board memberships.
  1. Bank Fee Reform. Banks charge poor customers more than rich customers. The federal government should limit overdraft fees to $1 per item. Banks now earn $30 billion a year on these fees, taking from the poor and giving to the bailed-out “too big to fail” banks.
  1. Credit Bureau Reform. The author proposes that credit bureaus should be regulated. Bad credit keeps poor people poor. The author proposes legislation to prohibit collection and reporting of old debts barred by statute of limitations; Prohibit deductions for applying for credit; and require companies to state the minimum credit score necessary for loan or credit line.

During the Great Recession corporations defaulted on loans, but their credit remained intact. Individuals were ruined by foreclosures. If corporations are people, why are they treated better than real people concerning credit? We need to revise our credit policies to allow poor to borrow more, and the rich to borrow less. Banks only lend money to people and corporations who don’t need it and this needs to be changed.

  1. Health insurance reform. Obamacare is a flawed system that not only hurts consumers, it harms America’s competitiveness. The answer is Medicare for all: a single-payer system like they have in Canada, Europe and most advanced nations.
  1. Higher Minimum Wages. The minimum wage in the United States is at historically low levels. The minimum wage can be raised state by state and federally. As a part of this effort the author proposes untaxing tipped wages. Those earning tips, waiters and other service employees, should not pay taxes on tips. Tips should be considered a gift and gifts are tax-free. Henry Ford doubled wages 100 years ago. Ford sold more cars to its own employees as a result. Businesses will gain when wages are increased. Walmart can raise its minimum wage to $12 per hour by raising prices 1.1%. And Walmart will sell more products to its own employees. Companies would be smart to increase the wages of their employees, just as Henry Ford did 100 years ago.
  1. Law Reform. The U.S. Supreme Court has tilted heavily in favor of large corporations against individuals. Now corporations can force consumers to sign mandatory arbitration agreements so when they cheat consumers, and they do cheat consumers, that the consumer cannot go to court and cannot file a class action. This must be changed. The Supreme Court was interpreting the Federal Arbitration Act and Congress can easily amend it so that it does not apply to consumer transactions. The original intent of this law, to use Justice Scalia’s turn of phrase, was for large corporations to settle disputes with other large corporations by arbitration.
  1. College Tuition and Student Loan Reform. College tuition is out of control. College loan debt surpassed $1 trillion. The cost of the Iraq was about the same. We could have paid off all college loan debt instead of fighting a worthless war. The author proposes more state and federal grants for college tuition and reduced interest rates on college loans.
  1. Strengthen Labor Unions. Studies have shown that the weakness of labor unions has caused the share of national income going to workers to decline. The author proposes making it easier to unionize workers.
