There seems to be evidence the economy is turning around these days, even though the jobless rate is still high and the U.S. is still drowning in twin deficits of budget and trade. Here is what a front page article in the Wall Street Journal said on Tuesday, April 6, 2010:
Stock and bond markets flirted with milestones on Monday, as the outlook for economic growth brightened following a string of reports showing signs of a pickup in the labor market, service sector and housing.
Companies like Toyota are offering incentives and special deals while American national champions GM and Ford give them a run for their money. Even though there is no real competition for a book like How Americans Can Buy American (since no other book actually shows you how to buy American) like Toyota has with GM and Ford, that doesn't mean it doesn't make sense to offer specials from time to time. After all, wouldn't that just make it easier for the right information to get in the hands of the right people?
In my opinion, the "right" people are the ones who use their dollars as a patriotic statement, put their money where their mouth is, and go the extra mile to make positive difference for the United States and its economy.
So now I'm bringing back the "All Three Editions" special I ran briefly before Christmas last year.? Everyone knows that Christmastime isn't the only time we need to be concerned about buying American, so if the labor market is really showing signs of recovery, let's reward the right kind of labor now to help push it along; the labor that takes place right here in America by American workers employed by American-owned companies!
Right now, by ordering the regularly-priced $18.95 third edition of How Americans Can Buy American ($22.90 with shipping), you can get all three of my How Americans Can Buy American editions for that same $18.95 with FREE shipping. That's a savings of almost 20 percent, and you'll get the historic first and second editions for free as well.
With all three editions, you'll have the complete collection of what many have called the Bible of buying American. Even though the first edition was written in 1996 and the second edition in 2002, these earlier two books will give you a historic perspective of buying American through the years. You'll also discover foreign brands and companies you probably thought were American all along.
Did you know Chef America Inc., the creator of Hot Pockets, used to be an American brand (you'd think it still would be with that kind if name) until Swiss-owned Nestle bought it in 2002? Did you know that also in 2002 the Ralston Purina Company of St. Louis, Missouri used to be an American company until Swiss-owned Nestle bought them too?
Swiss-owned Nestle is the biggest food company in the world, and one of the American acquisitions that helped them get there includes several brands of pet food that you might be feeding your dog or cat!
If you already have a copy of the most-recent third edition of How Americans Can Buy American, by ordering all three you can keep the first two editions for yourself, and give the third edition as a gift to that person you know would "Buy American" if only they were armed with the right information.
This is one of the best deals I've ever offered, and you can take advantage of it by going here and clicking on the All Three Editions link.
Thank you for your dedication to unlocking the power of consumer patriotism by buying American and for encouraging others to do the same. If our economy is truly recovering, and even if it's currently not, we can do our part to get it where it should be much sooner and more Americans back to work sooner as well. And that will be welcome news for all Americans, regardless of the industry or sector you work in.
