Through the stories of innovative entrepreneurs and businesses who are making things in the USA while successfully competing in the global economy, the film examines both the positive ripple effect that comes from domestic manufacturing jobs and the hurdles we'll need to overcome to start bringing them back, while asking business owners and consumers alike one simple question: what is your part?
About the Film
American manufacturing employment has been on the decline for decades, unleashing a devastating effect on our local and national economies. But it's the stories of communities and the families that comprise them that reveal the harshest costs upon the nation.
As employers struggle to compete in the global economy, the debates regarding unemployment, debt ceilings and the trade deficit rages on in our nation's capital. To many Americans, it feels like there is no one fighting for American jobs--especially the jobs in manufacturing.
Fortunately, the greatest thing America makes is Americans. The ability of average Americans to adapt, innovate and thrive has created one of the greatest civilizations in human history.
American Made Movie is a documentary film examining the factors contributing to the decline of the American manufacturing workforce and the integral role consumerism may play in getting the economy back on track. The movie looks back on the glory days of U.S. manufacturing when there was a more balanced relationship between the goods produced and the goods consumed. The film also illustrates the how the impact of technology and globalization has transformed the competitive landscape for companies doing business in America, as well as overseas.
By revealing the successes of companies that have prospered without adopting the practices of their competitors, American Made Movie shows the positive impact manufacturing jobs have on national and local economies, aiding them in the face of great challenges. The livelihood of our country depends on understanding how we can maintain the American Dream while competing in a global economy.
While the debate about unemployment, debt ceilings, and the trade deficit rages on, the eroding manufacturing sector that once supported the middle class is dragging down the nation's economy one lost job at a time.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, student, stay-at-home mom or a senior citizen, you have the power to transform America's future and be a part of the solution through thinking before buying and through the simple choices you make every day.
