There is a big difference between Built (assembled) in america or not.
Where was it designed
Where was the tooling built.
What is the percentage of USA parts
What is the total nbr of american jobs created (suppliers, Contractors,
Where is the material for parts from (Steel, Glass, Plastic etc)
How much of the money stays in the USA
What is the precent of cars for the company that is made in America ( over
50 % of all toyotas are
from Japan and elsewhere.
The design and tool business was big time in the USA now its disapearing
You are correct. Search the US Department of Commerce site for who actually
uses the most AMERICAN parts and materials.
Toyota buys it parts and materials, for the vehicles it assembles in the US,
whenever it can from Japan and other Jap suppliers in the US that assemble
parts in the US and Canada for the less than half of the vehicles it sells
in US that are assembled in the US and Canada.
Even Toyota says the Camry is "assembled in the US of world sourced parts."
What Commerce Department Website? Commerce Depart. has 100s of websites.
If you are correct, it should be simple for you to cut and paste the URL
of the site so that you can back your claim, WMBA.
Get real, dummy. I told you were to look for the facts, YOU are saying
that the source I quoted was not factual. Therefore it is up to you to
prove otherwise. Is it any wonder that we consider you a blowhard?
It was not found, because it is not there. Please provide the URL of the
actual site or better yet, shut up.
You're making the claims. It is up to you to prove them.
I don't who considers this poster a blowhard (nice personal attack,
btw), but he is not the person in this thread I would consider a blowhard.
You keep saying that over and over so that must be your opinion but I found
the information I posted exactly were I told you to search for the
information. If you can't find anything that proves what I posted is not
correct, that is YOUR problem.
The fact is the reason you can not is because what you chose to believe in
wrong. The fact is Japanese corporations have never paid a penny in US
federal corporate income taxes in the US because of tax credits paid in
Japan on their corporate income, period.
No, it's your problem. You can't back your claim. If it is so easy to
find the information, just post the URL.
Stop acting like you're a apoilled brat..
The fact is that the informatoin is not there. If I am wrong, just post
They're not Japanese corporations. They're US corporations that happen
to be owned by Japanese companies. That's a big difference.
Bottom line, you're not worth my time.
I won't reply to your stupidity on this thread again, unless you can
back your claim. You don't know what you're talking about.
