Nevada County over the years has promoted buy local as an economic strategy. The question in my mind has always been is this an effective strategy? I follow the Mercatus Center’s Everyday Economics video series and one of the top questions ask by the participants is “Are We Better Off if We Buy Local?
Professor Don Boudreaux answers the question in this video: https://shar.es/1qQz9L
It appears that Nevada County needs to re-think Buy Local. I highly recommend the Everyday Economics video series.
