The United States of Walmart

I have gotten a bunch of emails from time to time, challenging me (and about 100 other people) to see where the products we buy are made. As an ardent free trader, I usually click “mark as read” since where my products are made is of very little importance to me.

One email starts like this:

Check this out . I can verify this because I was in Lowes the other day
for some reason and just for the heck of it I was looking at the hose
attachments . They were all made in China . The next day I was in Ace
Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there.

It goes on, but I’ll spare you. You know where the email goes. So tonight I was at Walmart, and had to buy some goods, and for some strange reason, this email came to mind — because, the internets told me that we don’t make anything here anymore…. So I did some homework and made a little quiz. I’ll post the results later with some interesting data, but take the quiz for now. Click “Read More” to take the quiz.
