Midwest Book Review Conducts Early Review of How Americans Can Buy American
October 15, 2002:
"Now in a newly updated and expanded second edition, How Americans Can Buy American: The Power of Consumer Patriotism by Roger Simmermaker is a seminal and essential guide for consumers seeking to support American owned companies, so that corporate profits stay in America with corporations (including their employees and stockholders) that pay taxes to the American government. In our increasingly globalized world, it is no longer enough to simply look for a "made in America" stamp or label.
How Americans Can Buy American is filled cover to cover with extensive lists of virtually every imaginable brand of food or household item, complete with up-to-date information on where each company is based. How Americans Can Buy American is a solid, serviceable, consumer-oriented reference and one that should be in the home of every American union member and in the reference collections of every American community library.
"...If you've ever wondered about the domestic status of products you buy, you can find plenty of answers in Roger Simmermaker's book How Americans Can Buy American... The book is an eye-opener that just might influence how you spend your hard-earned bucks." ...More

The Best Way to Keep America's Ship Sailing is to Buy American by Charley Reese:
"...Roger Simmermaker, the author of How Americans Can Buy American argues that it is always best to buy products of American-owned companies, even if those products are made overseas. He argues that the profits and taxes on those profits stay here and that it is easier to persuade American companies to bring jobs back, than it is to persuade foreign companies to keep jobs here.

The Buy America Foundation:
"...Is this an American-made product? Not an easy question to answer in some cases. While many products fall clearly into either the domestic or foreign category, many others fall into the murky, gray area. When some parts of a product are domestic and some are foreign, how should it be classified? And what about the question of company ownership? Is a product American if it is made in this country by a foreign-owned corporation? These are some of the questions addressed in How Americans Can Buy American.
This handy guide lists hundreds of consumer products and brand names, indexed alphabetically. Both brand names and companies are identified as either foreign or domestic-owned.
How Americans Can Buy American is one of the most current and easiest to use guides for those consumers who want to make a conscientious effort to buy American."
