"Driven by Quality and Patriotism, U.S. Shoppers Will Pay a 10 to 60 Percent Premium for the Made in USA Brand Across a Broad Range of Product Categories, According to a Boston Consulting Group SurveySe calhar a minha ideia era mesmo absurda e até há massa crítica, os decisores é que estão tão amestrados pelas ideias do homo economicus que não ousam contestá-las.
More than 80 percent of U.S. consumers and, perhaps more surprising, over 60 percent of Chinese consumers say that they are willing to pay more for products labeled “Made in USA” than for those labeled “Made in China,” according to new research released today by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG).
About two-thirds of U.S. consumers are willing to pay a premium for ten key product categories that were tested—from baby food and appliances to electronics and apparel.
The premium they are willing to pay varies, ranging from about 10 percent to more than 60 percent in the categories tested.
In every one of the ten categories, at least 20 percent of U.S. consumers are willing to pay a premium of more than 10 percent.
Aside from American and Chinese clients, the study probed French and German consumers to find out that 65% percent of those consumers would prefer to spend more money on products produced in their respective countries."
