With each passing day the prospect of finding products labeled,“Made in the USA” becomes increasingly unlikely. Clothing, electronics, house ware, tableware, the very dishes from which we eat, are all made overseas…primarily in China. “Made in China“ has become the mantra of our economy.
Some companies which had received stimulus funding to get back on their feet, once stable again have moved production overseas.
Not enough that production of the very goods we need, or at least want, are predominantly made in countries other than our own, a recent occurrence sprinkled some salt on an already wounded pride. It involves our very own Keith Theater in Flushing.
It appears that a real estate firm, Canterbury Finance group in Manhattan, is lobbying the project developer in charge of the proposed overhaul of our long-neglected and abused RKO Keith's theater in Flushing, to take on the services of a Chinese construction company.
The firm has more than adequate funds to finance the construction of the project and is based in China. It is possible due to our country's present bleak economic environment that such an arrangement may actually come to be.
