I need to write a 5 paragraph essay defending my position on why I don't want American made products only, and why an open economy is better. Can I get some links/opinions or something to help me with this..?
First, it's almost impossible to find American-made products.
I urge you to go to Wal-Mart or a similar store and spend an hour or so trying to find American-made clothing, household appliances, or electronics. My hunch is that you'll find nothing. American workers can't compete with the very low wages in developing countries that manufacture these goods. Write down the prices of a lot of these products.
Then, study this site that lists American-made goods. What is the difference in prices and the ease of obtaining these goods?
Study these sites about open economy.
P.S. -- did you see the site I posted about the Islamic center near Ground Zero?
If not, I'll be glad to repost it for you.
No, I didn't get to see it. Reposting it would be great.
Thanks for all the help Ms.Sue! I reallly appreciate it(:
You're very welcome, MC. I hope you really learn a lot and enjoy this school year. :-)
