Well, if you're a Ford shopper, you're a Mazda shopper, at least partly. Or at least were, going back to the 90's or so. Along with the shift to internet shopping as the default, IME the days of a product being exclusively "made in _______" are over. Some assemblies and portions are subbed out and come from elsewhere. Sometimes the engineering and design is done from some other country that the parent company has an affiliation with. Oftentimes, I think "made in" is now more correctly stated as "assembled in," and if there's any advantage to the country/location worth listing, IMO it's just marketing. IOW, they will find some region with a lower-cost labor workforce, less regulation costs, and so on. ...What's interesting is that there's been a few occasions when I've Googled the town/province/whatever where assembly occurs, and oftentimes find out that the country itself is probably irrelevant - the company's manufacturing costs are purposefully as low as they can be, by choosing the specific state/town/province. IOW, it's a rare thing to have a thriving "made in location" that's somewhere adjacent to a town or area that citizens would purposefully choose to move to, to live in, to raise a family in, and have extended careers with long-term (decent) prospects in. Case in point for me was that I recently got a call from a recruiter/headhunter about a long-term contract/project in KY (for software development, which I dedicate a percentage of my income-making time to), and the recruiter clearly pointed out that their HQ was "just over the state line" in IN. IOW, much lower cost of operations in KY (insert "duh" here), so it sounds like a decent percentage of their labor force would be leveraged at the lowest costs possible. Whatever they were trying to tout to me as advantages to relocate (sounds like they would put me in IN and not KY), I just wasn't buying it. I guess these "hybrid workforce approaches" are probably the new norm, and they probably do manage to cobble up some folks from the metro areas to come work out in the sticks, so to speak. ...I'm just bringing up the above example because it hints at how Joe Citizen (e.g. me), wherever this person may be in the world, is getting incorporated into this new variation of the decentralized business paradigm. I have no doubt that they coordinate it with strategies that market, sell, and distribute the products online.
