Do you buy a product that was made in your country or made by a company that is from your country?

Forums - General Discussion - Do you buy a product that was made in your country or made by a company that is from your country?

As a general rule; no, I don't. Not out of spite but mostly because goods produced at home are insanely expensive due to salary costs, transports and abnormally high taxation across the board.

You mean US?Because America is a continent, you know?

To the OP at hand, I buy the best product available, be it national or international.I mean, price factors in, but outside of that, I go for quality, not for a country.

So you're that guy, eh?

Lol.It may seem a silly thing, but we are in an international forum.I personally think its best to be the most precise you can, because not everyone here is fluent on English, and they might not always understand the references.



I guess so, all we ever had is Philips TV's around the house. And lightbulbs, obviously, even though I think those aren't made in The Netherlands anymore. Video game-wise, I never played Killzone, but we did have the G7000 in the second gen instead of an Atari, Atari's are actually less common here than Philips's system (Odyssey2 in the US) in general. That and food and consumer goods but there's really hardly a way around that since we're a huge producer of these things in the first place.



I refuse to buy anything from Japan.

I ask this question because I tend to do this all the time. Even if the product is inferior. I try to buy products that was made in America or if the company that made it is based in America. I feel like I'm helping this country everytime I do this. Now a lot of you know I'm an xbox fanboy and I like the xbox one the most out of all the consoles this generation. However, I will still buy the xbox one and buy xbox one games on the system over the other competitors no matter what. Even if I found the product inferior. Thoughts?

They make xbox in the U.S.?

Foreign companies have U.S. offices and employ U.S. citizens? O.O

Besides food and cheap electronic products from China, I don't care where a product was made.



This explains a lot.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


Nope, I couldn't careless. I usually buy what I think it's best. Almost everything is made in China anyway.



I do so whenever it's a competitive option, i.e. doesn't necessarily have to be the best option but can't be too far from it either. And at least for groceries, I don't mind paying a little extra since they often seem to be of slightly higher quality. I guess those regulations are good for something.
