A new poll out yesterday (July 18th) found that Americans say they want to buy U.S.-made goods, but they don't want to pay more for them. Seventy percent of Americans said in the Reuters/Ipsos poll that it's "very important" or "somewhat important" to buy products made in the U.S. But 37 percent said they'd refuse to pay more for U.S.-made products, 26 percent said they'd only pay up to five percent more, and 21 percent said they'd only pay up to 10 percent more. Lower-income Americans were the most enthusiastic about buying U.S.-made goods, even though they are least able to afford to pay more for them.
