Made (Kinda) in America

Made in America with Nicole Lapin

We Americans have a long history of standing by our products.

We dumped British tea into Boston Harbor, not only to famously oppose taxation, but also as a rejection of British products in order to support a domestic economy. During the Great Depression, publishing-giant Hearst’s 26 newspapers sponsored a large-scale buy-American campaign. And in the 1970's, the International Ladies’ Garment Workers Union ran kitschy advertisements asking consumers to look for "Made in USA" labels.
