I support this, however many of the "Made in America" products I have used have been just as bad if not worse than Made in China goods. The best products I have used were made in Germany and Japan. They have an obsession for perfection.

Yes! A made in America search option would be great. I would use it . I don't believe it would be tricky. The product would have to have been actually made here employing American citizens.

Amazon I will spend 10x's as much with You, if You add a "country of origin" to every product that must be filled in by the manufacturer and a 100% money back guarantee if they list it wrong.

Wallmart, target, etc loose hundreds of dollars a month from me by refusing to sell american for many products. I spend considerable time hunting them on the web. You could be my first stop for goods with that simple option.

Often this is because they're trying to be "price competitive" with slave labor in china. It should be illegal to import goods manufactured using policies and conditions that would be illegal here.

If chinese goods could not be imported unless the factory met US epa requirements, their workers were paid american minimum wage, and the company paid equal to american company taxes on those wages, no goods would be built there, and quality here would return.

You are so right. I have notice that some things are qualified in very tiny print....for example large print says "Made in America" assembled in China. I am presuming they are talking about things like the lumber that is cut and put on ships and exported where things are "made" and then sent back to us and labeled "made in America". So many countries are raping our country and our leaders have allowed it. I am so happy to hear there are so many others that want to keep our industry here going! When we buy American products, our friends and neighbors can eat for another day. Keep it up and keep it home people!!!

would be awesome! Bump. C'mon Amazon! do something for the people of the U.S. you wretched soulless bastards!

Cheap prices and slave labor vs. higher prices and voluntary labor; I vote "Made in America". My New Years Resolution is not to buy anything made in PRC; so far, I'm keeping this one. If only I could lose that twenty pounds and stop smoking...

SAM says:
Made in America search option seems straight forward enough, but how would you define made in America? What if one component out of 100 in a product is made elsewhere is it still "made" in America? Where do you draw the line?

I agree with Modelbuilder's statement that unfortunately "Made in America" is not always a moniker of quality. Why would I want to spend my good money on bad quality? The profit-greed that leads to cutting corners, reducing material and labor costs, inferior packaging, etc. is not something that I would support. Pride in production and quality, sustainable job creation by manufacturers and "reasonable" profits going back into R&D are things that I can support. Until that happens for the products I use I will continue buy the products that give me the best value for money AND are from companies that know what civil obligation means - no matter where they are located.

Great idea. I can support this as long as the products aren't shotty quality.

I think this would be a wonderful thing!!! A "made in America" search filter would also shed light on the millions of "american" corporations that outsource their products. It would be almost impossible to buy a DVD with this filter... I'm sure many customers have noticed .. but Warner Brothers (also HBO) for example, as well as Disney (Buena Vista) outsource all or most to Mexico. I believe these companies, especially with the additional exposure from a company like Amazon, would reconsider these practices.
