Barr McClellan's "Made in the U.S.A." now in Bookstores

The power to transform the world’s economy and end the current recession is in the hands of U.S. consumers, says author Barr McClellan in his new book, “Made in the USA” now in bookstores from publisher Hannover House.

"Made in the U.S.A." offers an insightful, timely and thought-provoking look at the economic decline of America and its clearly identifiable causes. McClellan explains how the loss of U.S.A.-based manufacturing jobs to overseas suppliers not only exports consumer dollars but undermines the American economy. His solutions range from the closing of governmental loopholes and tax incentives that encourage the outsourcing of jobs, to simply asking American consumers to buy products that are "Made in the USA."

“American consumers are the most powerful economic force in the world,” said McClellan. “But over the past forty years, daily purchasing choices have increasingly favored imported goods over domestically produced items. The result has been the loss of U.S.-based manufacturing jobs, and a general decline in all primary economic factors. The U.S. trade deficit is now at an all-time high, and the emerging new economic powers of China and India have grown at our expense. The irony is that American retailers pursuing cheaper products have chased manufacturing jobs out of America, and ended up hurting their own local economies. We are being force-fed cheaply made, inferior quality imports that quickly break and must be frequently replaced. The short-term goal of corporate profits has a long-term poisonous effect to the economy, the environment and to our quality of life. The power to restore America’s economy and national stature must come from consumers who demand that retailers carry and promote ‘Made in the USA’ products,” he concluded, “because we add jobs, the heart of our current, persisting problem.”

Barr McClellan has 40 years of experience as an attorney and entrepreneur. He was instrumental in obtaining cell phone licenses in Texas and was also involved in the politics of the presidency as a partner in the Clark Law Firm, which handled personal legal matters for former President Lyndon Baines Johnson. McClellan’s best-selling, “Blood, Money & Power: How LBJ Killed JFK” (Hannover House 2004) uncovered the conspiracy behind the assassination.
