“American Jobs for American Workers”

U.S. business group works to kill Buy American plan

In the House version of the bill, the "Buy American" measure would require all public works projects funded by the stimulus package to use only U.S.-made iron and steel. European steelmakers object, saying that would violate U.S. commitments under the World Trade Organization's government procurement pact.

    ‘According to government statistics, U.S. imports from Europe declined from a 1929 high of $1,334 million to just $390 million in 1932, while U.S. exports to Europe fell from $2,341 million in 1929 to $784 million in 1932. Overall, world trade declined by some 66% between 1929 and 1934.’
