As poll after poll has demonstrated, consumers want to buy “Made in the USA.” In fact, it’s an obvious proposition. Americans overwhelmingly recognize that unless the United States maintains a strong and diverse manufacturing base, the nation’s overall economic standing will suffer.

To the Editor: Re “Making China’s Markets Transparent” (Op-Ed, Jan. 18): Scott Kennedy rightly criticizes the Chinese government’s manipulation of stock and currency “markets.” Such interventions are increasingly unsettling to global markets. His solution is to hector the Chinese by raising the issue at every opportunity. But harder talk and more public talk are inadequate.

Bush 'inherited' from Bill Clinton. To see if Hillary's claim holds any water, let's review a little history.
