If it was crap, no one would buy it

The simple fact is that many products coming in from overseas are as good or better than anything we once made in this country. There are also segments of industry where overseas products are the only ones available: Try to find an American-made television, camera, or high-end stereo.

Your solution is not only inadequate to the scope of the problem, it's essentially impossible. If people aren't even hiring, what makes you think they're willing to sink millions into building a factory and equipping an assembly line to build American-made products. No one is willing to go back to paying $800 for a small TV, simply to employ Americans.

The global economy has given the American consumers trillions in disposable income, and they're not going to give that up.
