My shopping preferences are for local goods and for maximum value.
To win my money, the best quality products must also have a price point situated in such a position so that the quality per dollar ratio represents what I take to be "good value". (I will gladly pay $2 dollars for a cheaply made plate or cup instead of paying $1,000 for a really well made plate or cup, because the $2 item has a greater value.)
So, if I had access to high quality and high value foreign-made goods to the exact same degree that I had access to local goods of lesser quality and lesser value, I would be in a quandry.
Due to costs of shipping, I would hope that locally produced goods could make up in value what they may have to compromise in quality so that those locally made goods can still be the best value product.
