CPA is working hard to bring about changes in Washington that will make it easier for manufacturing to return to the United States. Unfortunately that is a slow process and there is a lot of resistance from big money lobbyists who are paid to make sure that does not happen.
As consumers we can be the charging effect that helps makes it happen much faster. By supporting those companies and brands that are making products here now we will be driving growth in a sector of our economy that many had written off as dead. And, it’s happening!
Good point, Frank! Let’s hope there can be a change with that.
Melissa Tallman published Trump Appointees Defy 'Buy American,' Protect Chinese Manufacturing in CPA Press 2019-04-23 09:58:57 -0400
Excerpt: “GOP globalists are a big threat to the economic recovery,” Stumo said. “President Trump’s nomination team needs to have a litmus test to screen out globalists when considering appointees. The president should now be tweeting about these America Last FTC commissioners as vigorously as he tweets against the Federal Reserve.”
President Trump’s hand-picked appointees for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) defied his “Buy American” economic nationalist agenda in a recent case when they voted to financially protect companies who falsely claimed their Chinese-manufactured products were “Made in America.”Read more

First Ever Made in U.S.A. Trade Show
The largest collection of American-made machines and products will be on display at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, October 3-6, 2019
INDIANAPOLIS (APRIL 9, 2019) – MADE IN AMERICA 2019, the first-ever exposition and celebratory event solely focusing on U.S. manufacturing and products made in the USA, will take place at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, October 3-6, 2019. With more than 800 exhibitors and 10,000 attendees expected, this four-day event will bring together the largest-ever network of industrial professionals, keynote speakers and conscious consumers for one common goal: raising awareness for the economic, environmental and community impact of American manufacturing.
“American-made machines and products are the backbone of America’s strength,” said President and CEO Don Buckner, Sr. “We take great pride in our ability to deliver above and beyond with the goods we produce. While everyone has a part of their own industry’s circle, we seldom find the opportunity to celebrate that unique craftsmanship in one place together.”
For this monumental event, more than 450,000 square feet of the Indiana Convention Center has been reserved to showcase American-made machines and products by 800 U.S. manufacturers. While all exhibitors will share a commonality in their U.S.-based productions, the variety of represented product categories and industries will be incredibly vast, ranging from aerospace and automobiles to apparel and textiles. This event will truly be the most comprehensive representation of American manufacturing and production ever in its purest form.
The Made in America Kickoff Show will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2019. This night will include live performances by top-selling American billboard artists and keynote speakers. Friday, October 4, will feature the past, present and future of American manufacturing, with speeches by industry leaders and a celebration honoring U.S. military veterans who helped lay the foundation for American manufacturing. The closing evening event on Saturday, October 5, will be the first annual “Made in America Awards” to honor the American manufacturing tradition and to recognize the accomplishments of American production heroes, the heart and soul of homegrown manufacturing.
