The Economics of
Where did our jobs go..?
When we throw away an electronics product, it goes into a
landfill and rusts. We then purchase new products, which are
made more cheaply, and our money goes to Korea and China. An
alternative is to have our older products repaired. A repair
might cost as much or even more than a cheaper replacement, but
often the older units are built better - more ruggedly
constructed and able to be serviced. Dollars spent locally on
repairing older products provide jobs here and now in
Cincinnati, and our money stays in the U.S.A., instead of going
to foreign lands.
