The second edition of How Americans Can Buy American: The Power of Consumer Patriotism is now available. This new book is not only the best guide to buying American products available - it is the only guide available. Upon searching the bookstore shelves, Amazon.com, B&N.com (Barnes & Noble) and BAMM.com (Books-A-Million), it is amazing that especially after September 11 woke up the sleeping giant of patriotism in many Americans, no one else is writing about this subject in book form.
Buying American has surfaced as a more-popular topic on talk radio, and has received more ink in America's newspapers than it ever has in a long time, but we must do more than just talk about this issue.
Americans have more power available to them than they ever imagined to steer the global economy in a direction that best benefits America - and ultimately themselves. As most of us know, the United States has a horrible trade policy, but if concerned Americans all across the country leave foreign-owned, foreign-made products to rot on the retail shelves, there is nothing any governmental trade policy can do to overcome such a united consumer strategy.
How Americans Can Buy American puts the steering wheel controlling America's fate into the hands of those who care about it most - The American People. We can't always stop foreigners from buying our country, but we can stop giving them the money with which to do it.
