Interesting article about doing commerce with China-

WHY WE LEFT OUR FACTORIES IN CHINA

Ask if goods are made in the USA

“Just as corporations squeeze their suppliers to meet their demands, Americans who care about our long-term economic health, and a strong middle class, should use our collective purchasing power to demand American-made goods. We actually still make things here in the U.S. A.” (Cont.)

No longer made in China: U.S. companies start re-importing some jobs

“Four years ago, La Vergne-based Pro Charging Systems LLC outsourced manufacturing of several key components of its new line of battery chargers to China.”

“The idea was to take advantage of lower labor costs and other advantages the company was counting on as it made charger parts there that would end up in hunting vehicles and golf carts sold in the United States.”

“Over the past year, though, Pro Charging has shifted that work and some other assignments back to U.S.-based suppliers.”… (Cont.)

Where You Can Buy Made in America Building Products

“In all there are more than 120 products from more than 33 states. However, the builders do acknowledge that using American products can be more expensive.

A box of nails is $5 more than those made in China and steel is $146 more a bundle. Even though certain goods are more expensive, in total, the cost of the house is nearly identical. Currently, the all-American home, which is not yet finished , is running only 1 to 2 percent more than a foreign-sourced house.” (Cont.)

“PFNC-“Finally, a home of our own.”

This is a company that provides homes/shelters made out of the abundance of storage containers that the United States has accumulated from the trade disparity.
PFNC

“PFNC stands for “Por Fin Nuestra Casa.” Translated in English this simply means “Finally, a home of our own.” These words are the foundation of PFNC, whose goal is to provide housing to those who most desperately need it around the globe.

PFNC utilizes surplus shipping containers resulting from the United States’ consistent trade deficit. These containers serve as the building block of PFNC housing, but go through an
extensive conversion process to make them a home. PFNC offers an affordable housing solution that is scalable and fully portable. Each PFNC unit includes 1st world amenities for a price of less than $15,000 (US)*” (Cont.)
