Look at tools. A SnapOn brand rachet costs $30. A Walmart rachet cost $5.95 with sockets.
A basic Snap On ratchet is $80+
I own those and Craftsman. But I can't depend on anything but Snap On to stand up for years. The others are perfectly fine for home use, even a lifetime for a hobbyist using it often. But can literally get a Chinese ratchet for 99 cents. Obviously will be very flawed. That's probably a little too low on the scale for a real comparison, a $5 ratchet may work ok for a long time (user has a lot to do with cheap tool longevity) but at 1600x the price you would think so.
Now if a guy needs to accomplish something at home, not his job, what should be buy? '
As a consumer only, not a keyboard economist (I don't even qualify as that for the record) there isn't really much choice to be had. The Snap On ratchet is 100% made here, but even wanting as much as you can to buy American, do you really have a choice here?
10 years ago I wanted to buy camping gear. I wanted to buy USA made, partly because shucks, it's camping! That's when I discovered that locally in my middling sized town, that was not possible.
