I own equipment mostly made and owned by American companies but also have allot of components made over seas. I will take for example my New Holland TN70 tractor. It is made by Case/New Holland and was made in Italy. So far a good tractor. I guess my thing is are we really saving anything in the long run by sending our jobs over seas or letting foreign companies come over hear and sell there products. Im all for the best product but I wonder down the road if all our in the past higher paying jobs go to other countries who will afford the $50,000 trucks, 200,000.00+ houses and so on here in the US. Im not trying to start a war but just wonder what people think about this as far as the down the road effects. Me personally I guess Im for the best product no matter where it's made but at the same time I try to lean toward who can better benefit the American people. My Dodge Ram is owned by Mercedes (Damiler Chrysler).
