Perhaps it’s our heightened excitement as we face Germany tomorrow in the World Cup’s final day of group play, or the fact that 30 years ago, American rock singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen wrote and released his iconic tune, “Born in the USA,” or even the fact that we are soon celebrating our nation’s 238th birthday…individually or collectively, these factors contribute significantly to the overwhelming essence of pride which now emanates through the spirit of America. Sure, it’s times like these when we can easily embrace the camaraderie and revel in our heritage, but how often do we truly take pause and consider how our purchasing decisions impact the future economic viability of our great country?
