Made here — intriguing notions

Inspirational story in NYT today about efforts in San Fran to alert locals about products made there.  More important, discussion about smaller, locally targeted, mfg processes which create real jobs.

In particular, I like the values expressed in this statement (esp. in light of the stories of US companies going abroad to avoid taxes e.g. GE):

Jamieson Leadbetter, a fourth-generation baker whose grandfather gave him this advice when he decided to continue the Portland, Me.-based family business in San Francisco: “Pick your community well. You’re not there solely to make money; you’re there to play a larger role.”
