Balancing the Budget and Start Buying Locally

The Balance of Power

I don’t have tell you that we are in a deep financial crises. The stock exchanges around the world are literally in melt down. People are seeking solutions and nobody is able to see beyond the tips of their noses. I will keep this short and sweet.

As dumping seems to be the economic posturing of the day and until there is some semblance of fair trading acts and to support the regrowth of the heavy manufacturing sectors in your regions, I am suggesting that when possible, purchase products that have been manufactured, produced or co-produced in your region, or country. Unless we do so, we will loose what ever is left of our heavy and electronics industries and become solely a services based society. If we loose our capacity to produce high tech industrial products, we will become nothing more than a third world group of countries with very little leverage if any.

Comments welcome…
