For every dollar Americans spend on Chinese goods, only $0.25 is returned. It doesn't take a math wiz to figure out that eventually we're going to be pretty short on cash.
The American Revolution was also about economic independence from a foreign power. Remember the Boston Tea Party? If everyone were to focus their attention on buying American products and avoiding imports from countries who shun our exports, we could make a real dent in this country's economic problems.

An amazing review of Buying America Back. From the review: "Every once in a while, you'll stumble upon a book that significantly changes the way you see the world. This is one of those books."
"I already expected something interesting after seeing endorsements from two famous people who rarely, if ever, agree on anything: former Green party presidential candidate Ralph Nader and the very conservative congressman (and former House Armed Services Committee Chair) Duncan Hunter. That makes this book's ability to exceed my expectations even more remarkable."

Alan Uke talks to KUSI News "Good Morning San Diego" about his book, "Buying America Back" and about a group preparing a bill in Congress with Congressman Brian Bilbray to change our product labels.
Uke explains that the government and people of countries that are doing well right now have a preference for their own products, and how when we buy products from countries that do not have equal trade with us, the money leaves the country and does not come back.
