"U.S.-based manufacturer, Alan Uke, makes the case for moving your money to Made in America and provides the point-of-sale labeling disclosure solution to give you this job-producing information. Vote with your pocketbook for a more self-reliant U.S.A. closer to home and your ideals. The kinetic Alan Uke wants to label America all the way to really 'Made in America'."-- Ralph Nader, Activist; Presidential Candidate; Author, Unsafe at Any Speed
"Alan Uke provides simple, breakthrough ways to empower the American people to actually impact our trade deficit. Anyone who is a consumer and is concerned about the state of the U.S. economy should read this book."--Carlos Gutierrez, Former U.S. Secretary of Commerce and former Chief Executive Officer, Kellogg Company
"Buying America Back makes this simple point: Workers and consumers are economic allies and they should be empowered. Putting informed buying power into consumers' hands should be part of a concerted and comprehensive national manufacturing strategy."--Richard L Trumka, President AFL-CIO
"Buying America Back is an easy read for anyone who is interested in stimulating the economy without using taxpayer dollars. As more products are produced globally, it's not as simple as buying American anymore. Alan clearly walks you through the relationship between where a product is made and how important a fair trade ratio is to the United States. By educating consumers on this, Alan proposes using consumer choice and economic freedom to succeed where the big government programs have failed--moving the economy and producing jobs."--U.S. Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-CA)
"In this remarkable book, Alan Uke, an American-based small manufacturer and a concerned parent and citizen, helps us understand how the unbalanced trade championed by the financial elites on Wall Street and in the multinational corporations has undermined our national prosperity and strength and the standard of living of our people. He explains how and why a citizen-led consumer movement focused on buying goods made in America by Americans can be an important part of the process by which we rebuild our national well-being. This is an important book which fortunately is appearing at a key moment in our national history."--Patrick A. Mulloy, former Assistant Secretary in the International Trade Administration of the Department of Commerce and a five-term member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission
