My brother reminded me of this old maxim and I am finding myself following that advice as much as I can. It's better for the environment and economy. While it is not the chic thing to do, American businesses are as Fair Trade and all that hippie mumbo-jumbo as any Chilean made coffee house garb.
We can't keep exporting our manufacturing and have everyone work at Starbucks. Making things is important and it's high time we get back to work doing the best work we can.
