I wouldn't necessarily agree with you. When the Honda is made in the US, US workers are benefitting. That can easily be a better situation than say a U.S. company with few employees that is importing products.

On the issue of made overseas vs here in the USA, if an American company makes it overseas but under the American moniker, do they avoid tariffs and capital gains taxes when the item is brought and sold in the USA?

Tariffs? There isnt a system in place that shields American companies from foreign tariffs? I figured there would be costs, but tariffs drives the costs up for the end purchasing consumer.

No, school you on how I roll. I have been deemed a nasty mofo by many on these boards and quite a few folks know I can get downright indignant. As opposed to going there, I opt to leave it alone. Now, if you persist, I'll get out of pocket and embarass you. Is it worth my time? No. Are you hurt that I called you a dummy? Its apparent that you are. In the interest of not hogging ANOTHER thread with my diatribe, I apologize for calliing you a dummy. Now, can you let it go? This is really getting old

There are a lot of problems with being a manufacturing country. Everybody is always looking for the cheapest. I remember when Japan was making everything. And Mexico was making everything. Now it's China. Manufacturing moves before anybody becomes the super power. With all the bad products and increasing costs China may be bumped soon.

Not bad products, they cut a lot of corner. China needs unions, but that wont happen in a socialist/communist country. Unions question authority and you know what happens in China when that happens...you get people run over by tanks in Tianamen square

I would call all the recalls on toys bad products. Wouldn't let my kid play with lead. The lead is probably the result of cutting corners.

Default american made

bxpitbull, you spend alot of time talking about others and your own interests, which it looks to me that it has offended a few people!! what i think you need to do is take one hand at a time and grab ahold of your ears and pull your head out of your a$$!! You obviously know nothing about a union american/state. The labor unions you speek of set the pay scale so the working class can make a good living. The big coorperation are the ones going over seas and hiring the lowest bidder not the labor unions. This might as well be the 1920s, we the people need unions more than anything right now given the fact that jobs are so hard to find. I happen to be one of these over payed un ejucated factory workers that you so ignorently speek of. I would like to know who it is that got us to this pay scale with the kind of benifits we auto workers have ???? THE UAW!!! You must be one if those pencil pushers up north that make stupid decisions to cut the work force putting people out of work. Last but not least I am not sure if you are educated or not I woulod hope not because being an educated idiot is far worse than being a plain working middle class dummy!!!!! The next time you call the fire department or the police look outside and see what it is they are driving its probably not a honda or a toyota,we need to depend on them to get were they are going . Keep on keepn on and dont forget to be sure and dupport your local union and buy american...

everything we sell to china gets taxed and they base the value of their currency off ours to maintain a financial advantage. think of it this way. there is only so much money in the world.. it's either leaving the country or coming in.. i'll take coming in.. honda making cars here to seel to us does us no good unless those cars are exported throughout the world.. chevy can make cars anywhere where to sell anywhere and the profit comes here.. i sold all my associateds when they sold out..
