Quite frequently when someone ask about what tool to buy online folks chime in with which tool to buy and then the conversation usually ends up with one or more persons saying this brand use to be great when it was made in the USA. Has anyone really had a direct comparison by having the product made in the states and the newer product made in China or somewhere else overseas side by side?
I’m wondering is this claim true that non-American products ar inferior is really true or is it our “buy American” fervor kicking in ? If you feel they are inferior who’s fault is it? is it the manufacturer for not requiring high enough standards for the products they order from overseas? Is it our fault for wanting lower prices? Or is it just the fact there made by people getting very low wages?
What’s your take on the subject?
