How Buying American Helps

How Buying American Helps

Buying America Back is about restoring our economy and American prosperity. It is founded on the principle that individual consumers banded together with a common cause can transform the U.S. economy, secure America's future, and create a better world as a result of our purchasing decisions.

There are two vital tools that will help us succeed. The first is a more detailed country of origin label on all consumer products, giving accurate, accessible information at the point of sale. The second is you.

Your buying decisions can change the course of our economy. Every dollar that you spend is that powerful.

Did you know?

  • Just one manufacturing job supports five other U.S. jobs
  • Shifting your spending by just $5 a day would return unemployment back to normal levels.
  • $10 a day spent on U.S. made products would cause wages to rise.
  • Any amount we spend on U.S. made goods, or made from countries with balanced trade, brings and holds money into the U.S. economy.
  • Any amount we spend on U.S. made goods, or made from countries with balanced trade, makes the United States more politically, financially, and militarily secure.

You are the Movement.
