Is “Made in America” what you think?

Refractron participated on the WXXI program Connections with Evan Dawson to discuss when you see a label that says, “Made in America”. A recent piece in the conservative publication, the National Review, argued that “buying American” has little meaning in today’s global supply chain and we should scrap the phrase, or stop giving it such romantic idealism. Writer Kevin Williamson says “if everything you bought were truly local, our economy would be similar to that of North Korea or Venezuela”. Evan discussed what “Made in America” really means with Kent Gardner, chief economist for the Center for Governmental Research, Scott Bartkowski, President of Refractron and Adam P. Crandall, Manager of International Sales and Strategic Partners for Refractron.
