Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Made in America VS Global Capitalism

The philosophy of Andersen Studio ( Andersen Design) Ceramics has long been committed to being a made in America product, but the philosophy of the centrally managed economy of the state of Maine is to embrace global capitalism. Andersen Design is well aware of what global capitalism is because ceramic is one of the first western industries to be exported over seas to global low wage labor markets. And so as Andersen launched a new website dedicated to crowdfunding a mold renovation product of its extensive line of wild life sculptures and contemporary functional forms, with a goal of having our product produced through a network of American ceramic slip casters- the question arises - Is Andersen Design naive- OR are the central managers of Maine's economy short sighted?
