It is very gratifying when a post I have written gets mentioned in the blogosphere.  It happened a few months ago when a writer at Forbes.com discussed my post on whether Apple could assemble its iProducts in this country.  Tim Worstall of Forbes disagreed with the conclusions I reached, but responded to them in a respectful, intelligent way.  Well, just the other day, my same Apple post was linked to by the author Richard Eskow in his post in the Huffington Post.  Now all I have to do is convince Forbes.com and the Huffington Post to allow me to be a guest contributor for them and the compelling need to put members of our ican family back to work by buying American products would be heard throughout the land!   But I am not holding my breath until that happens.

About John Briggs

I live in Seattle and love telling stories about Americans, the places where they work and the things that they make. I have just published a book, Simply American, encouraging Americans to purchase American made products; the book can be ordered at www.simply-american.com.

    It should be noted that the 67,000 jobs that are not in the USA because Apple makes its products in foreign countries, means thousands of people on unemployment compensation and/or welfare in the USA – a big expense for the taxpayers. It also means there are homes those unemployed people can’t afford to buy – a big loss of value for home owners who wish to sell their homes. There are IPADs that those unemployed Americans can’t afford to buy – a big loss for Apple. How many IPADs or anything else can those poor Chinese workers buy with their low wages.

  2. Great job. Keep up the good work. -Jack A
