You make a very valid point...

But in the end I think the free market would regulate that.
If another country wants to subsidize, sure it is a fools game. However given two American companies making similar products, in the end the cheaper, better quality and or better value will usually win out.

I don't think a buy American scheme is all that bad, and does not necessarily protect them from competition.

Just look at the auto industry in the 70 and 80's....
There was a big buy American push, but that did'nt help as the Japanese were putting out a better, cheaper, more fuel efficient product. Now those cheap Japanese cars may have given them a push through product loyality, however the tide has turned as the US can now match the quality and often exceed in luxury. Unfortunately, we are our own worst enemy handicapping ourselves through high pay unions, epa regulations and high corporate taxws.
