GOING GLOBAL


ODDITIES OF GLOBALISM


  1. Honda & Toyota make more cars in American factories, using American labor, than Ford, Chrysler, or GM do. Japan makes more of its Komatsu tractors in the U.S. than John Deere makes of its tractors.

  2. Ultimately, consumers cause sweatshops (when they purchase products made by workers paid less than they can live on), but they don’t know it.

  3. American Wal_Mart shoppers are helping the Chinese economy (which manufactures almost all Wal-Mart merchandise) more than the American economy.

  4. Global corporations are more patriotic to global markets than to their own home nation.

  5. Women hold the key to 21st century economic growth (because they are the most under-employed economic asset in today’s world).

  6. A high currency value is not always best for a nation (because it makes the nation’s exports most expensive for foreigners to purchase).

  7. American tax cuts over the past 30 years have weakened U.S. global power (by increasing federal government deficits financed in large part by foreigners.)

  8. Most of China’s exports belong to Western companies (who off-shore their manufacturing to China).

  9. The largest global companies have more assets than most nations.

  10. In the 21st century, economic power makes nations more powerful than military power.

  11. The most valuable corporate assets today are invisible (patents, copyrights, invention and innovation).

  12. $3 trillion crosses national borders every day.

  13. The richest nation in the world (the USA) is also the most indebted nation in the world.

Cars.com disqualifies models with a domestic parts content rating below 75%, models built exclusively outside the U.S., or lines soon to be discontinued without a U.S.-built successor.


Foreign cars made in the USA. Honda's Ohio-built Accord is 70% domestic parts. Toyota's Corolla is made in a California plant alongside General Motors models.

American cars made abroad. Ford's hit Fusion sedan is made in Mexico; only half its parts are from the USA or Canada. GM pitches its small HHR sport utility and giant Suburban straight at the American market, but they, too, are built in Mexico. HHR has only 41% American and Canadian parts.

Famous American names and foreign owners. More than three-quarters of the parts in Dodge's new Nitro SUV, which is assembled in Toledo, Ohio, are American or Canadian. But the profits go to Germany because Dodge is part of DaimlerChrysler. Chrysler Group, meanwhile, just became the first major automaker to announce it's going to make small cars for the U.S. market in China.

Ford Motor's (F) popular F-150 pickup truck contains so many foreign-sourced parts that it failed to make Cars.com's top rankings of its American-Made Cars index for 2010. Meanwhile, Japan's Toyota Motor (TM), had more models on the list than other manufacturer, taking three of the top 10 slots. Just 55% of the parts used to manufacture the 2010 model of the venerable F-150 come from domestic sources, the online car-buying guide says. In past years, the F-150 has held steady with around 80% domestic content. The 2009 redesign reduced that amount to a still-respectable 75% rating. Other Ford models did make the list, however: The Escape SUV and Focus compact took third and fourth, respectively.

The F-150 typically tops vehicle sales charts in the U.S. year in and year out. But its two competitors for that No. 1 sales spot, the Toyota Camry and the Honda (HMC) Accord, contained the most domestic content of any popular vehicles sold in the U.S., according to Cars.com's analysis. Camry's first-place ranking was a repeat for Toyota. The popular sedan, manufactured in Georgetown, Ky., and Lafayette, Ind., displaced the F-150 last year to take the top spot. At No. 2, with a 75% domestic content and strong sales, the Accord is new to the index. All Accords sold in the U.S. are now assembled in either Ohio or Alabama.

America's other top nameplate, Chevrolet -- General Motors' "baseball, hot dogs and apple pie" brand -- had only one model on this year's top 10 list: the Malibu midsized sedan, built in Kansas City, Kan., ranked No. 5. GM's Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-sized pickups once regularly appeared on the American-Made Index. But with production of both trucks now split between the U.S. and Mexico, today's models have only 65% domestic-parts content.

Chrysler Group's Ram 1500 and Toyota's Tundra pickups, however, did make the top 10, finishing seventh and eighth, respectively, with Chrysler's iconic Jeep Wrangler SUV, built in Toledo, Ohio, taking ninth. In addition to the Tundra and the Camry, one other Toyota made the list at No. 6, the Sienna minivan, which is made in Indiana.
