Here's an interesting question. I know folks who prefer to "buy American," especially when it comes to big-ticket items like cars. But what makes a product, brand, or company "belong" to a specific nation? Chrysler is now Daimler-Chrysler, since it was acquired by the German automaker. Is a Dodge built in Detroit still an American car? Many Hondas and Toyotas are assembled in the U.S. They may be designed in Japan, styled in California, and built with parts sourced from Mexico. Are those Japanese cars? How do you decide?
Or, to bring things closer to TR's territory, is AMD an American company?
At the end of the day, does it matter to you whether the product you're buying comes from your home country? Perhaps only for certain types of products? Or not at all? Do you have an aversion to products produced in certain places? Why or why not? Discuss.
