The United States has the leading economy in the world, but Americans
still find that much of the consumer goods they buy are not made here.
Consumer goods are produced all over the world, and American businesses
have always had to compete internationally. We have a small portion of
the world's population, (about 4.5%) and we manufacturer almost 20% of
the worlds goods.
Some people may complain that the US is at a labor cost disadvantage. I
don't think it's a disadvantage to have the highest standard of living
in the world. That's why labor costs more.
Smart business people will recognize a tremendous natural
advantage...95% of the potential customers for goods we produce are in
other countries. If we make consumer goods that Americans want, there's
a very good chance people all over the world will want them.
The challenge is not trying to compete making cheap consumer goods. The
challenge is to make elegant high value products, and to find
innovative ways to lower the costs of producing them.
