Guess What Is Now No Longer Made In America?
Certain things are just supposed to be made in America. Even as the outsourcing trend continues and America’s manufacturing base continues to erode. Unfortunately, it an eroding economy complete with high unemployment and higher costs, companies are forced to find the cheapest labor in order to stay profitable and stay in business.
Guess what business is now moving more manufacturing overseas to India? Harley-Davidson. The iconic American motor cycle brand will now be made in India.
What is next? Apple pie? Maybe we can start building NFL arenas in India and playing football over there too?
Unfortunately, we have a government full of people leading this country that either have never worked in the private sector or would utterly fail a test on basic economics. Rather than create an environment that keeps companies in America – and BRINGS companies TO America – we are driving them away with higher regulations, higher taxes, etc. and then trying to compensate for this erosion by borrowing money and printing money.
Recipe for disaster.
This economy is broken and unfortunately, until the idiots in Washington get out of the way, and Congress gets rid of the Federal Reserve, the course is set. So while more and more jobs are shipped overseas, you better be taking action to prepare yourself for the realities of the day. That reality is a lower standard of living.
