Buying America Back
A Real-Deal Blueprint for Restoring American Prosperity
by: Alan Uke

Buying America Back outlines a 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.

Accurate disclosure would enable consumers to reward local producers or those with high local-product content. Uke points out that this approach is increasingly popular with food, and prevalent in many other countries.

"As more products are produced globally, it's not as simple as buying American anymore. Alan clearly walks you through the relationship between where a product is made and how important a fair trade ratio is to the United States.

Every once in a while, you'll stumble upon a book that significantly changes the way you see the world. This is one of those books...what was most striking about this work is its potential - with no trade restrictions, subsidies, or costly regulations (and almost no cost to businesses or taxpayers!) - to drastically improve the state of the U.S. economy on the scale of tens or hundreds of billion dollars and hundreds of thousands of new jobs annually.
