America has always been a country of entrepreneurs, builders, and creators. As we work to restore our economy, it is important to stand behind the American companies that make good products, maximize U.S. employment, and earn the loyalty of their workers and the communities of which they're a part. Roger Simmermaker introduces to us fifty companies doing just that, and explains how we can all be part of a strong national recovery.
- President Bill Clinton

"When it comes to buying American, I tell people to start with the smaller items," advises Simmermaker.
