Made in the USA, the Luxe Edition

Posted in Uncategorized by echan on August 31, 2010

A Continuous Lean pointed out that some of Louis Vuitton’s handbags are now made in the USA.  Perhaps this can serve as a template for economic growth in America.  Instead of Florence Henderson, we could hire some glamorous spokespeople to push luxury goods that are manufactured or handcrafted in the United States.  While the manufacturing costs may be a little higher, this segment of the consumer goods market is the most able to handle the increases.  When people are already dropping two or three grand on a handbag or $800 on a pair of heels, then what’s another fifty dollars?  Supply sliders could rejoice because this would be a true, domestic trickle down effect.
