Ep 9, S3, Is Harley-Davidson really an American made motorcycle? International Business Professor, Frank Dubois, PHD gives insight.
Ep 9, S3, Is Harley-Davidson really an American made motorcycle? International Business Professor, Frank Dubois, PHD gives insight on this complex issue. What is American Made mean? Does it need to be manufactured in the USA? Can it have products made outside the United States? What about if the products were made in the US and shipped overseas to be finished? Very few things are 100% American Made. Seven Criteria are considered, including profit margin, labor, and research and development location, among others. Mark does his absolute best to set John up on who drives the most American vehicle, when it backfires on Mark. Check out the KoGod Index which analyzes products for this very topic.
