    • No worries! Soon it will be trendy to refer to manufactured goods as "Made On Earth"...and then we will find some planet with labor/materials cost advantages...and then it won't be trendy anymore...and Earth will get a reputation for cheap, plastic garbage that falls apart before it is paid for...and everyone will go around all day long telling each other how wonderful they are and how good they are.

      So...Hello there! How are you?

    • As a point of clarification, in most parts of manufacturing, to be 'made in America' (and to qualify for the manufacturing tax benefit), it only has to be 'substantially' manufactured in the United States. That can require as little as 20% of the process being within the United States or its territories.
