Manufacturer's Dilemma of marketing "Made in USA"
Manish Sheth   10/29/2015 6:52:35 PM

The Manufacturer's dilemma will get more complex. It would be virtually impossible to tag "Made in USA" to any "smart" product that includes some form of electronics for sensing and/or collecting data. Almost all chips/components/semiconductor devices are designed/developed/manufactured across-multiple continents. In addition, what can a manufacturer do if their product has some software that was developed outside of USA? FTC has some serious work cut out for them for product labeling.
