Book Description

Best selling author Barr McClellan presents an extensively researched analysis of the negative impact the exportation of manufacturing jobs overseas has had on the U.S. economy, and how this has fueled the current economic crisis. Over the past eight years, corporate tax loopholes have rewarded companies for exporting jobs while a total suspension of regulations and oversight facilitated an orgy of fiscal irresponsibility. Over 3.2-million manufacturing jobs were lost in the USA, exported to other countries and undermining the very foundation of our economy. McClellan presents a solid case for encouraging the purchase of products made in the USA, as a solution to restoring our nation's economic health. Researched and compiled over a five year period, McClellan accurately predicted all of the major economic events of the past two years, including the mortage meltdown, the stock market collapse and the government's need for emergency measures. Economic recovery for the USA can be quickly achieved, McClellan states, if preference is given to made in the USA products by a majority of Americans for their everyday consumer purchases. Buying USA and locally produced merchandise revitalizes the economy through a multiplier effect that counter-balances the negative impact of every exported dollar. Made in the USA is an insightful and hopeful study of how the average American consumer has the power to protect their own jobs, their local economy and the entire nation through responsible consumerism. McClellan argues that short-sighted business practices, often fueled by special tax credits that actually incentivize the outsourcing of jobs overseas, are ultimately self-defeating in their weakening of the U.S. consumer base that these same companies depend on to buy products.

About Hannover House

Hannover House is a full service media company, specializing in the production and distribution of feature films for theatres, home video and the Video-On-Demand formats for the North American retail marketplace. Formed in 1993, Hannover House concentrated it’s activities exclusively in the literary, book-publishing industries until 2003 when the company entered into the DVD marketplace.

Now, with over 200 titles in its growing film library -- over half of which are in active distribution -- Hannover House has quickly ascended to a dominant role as a leading, independent distributor in the U.S. market. The company is particularly noted for its successes in placing DVD titles within mass merchandisers and key chain stores. Retailers carrying Hannover House products include thousands of independently owned and operated retail video stores and book stores, and most mass merchants and major retailers. In addition to this "core" distribution activity, Hannover House is launching two, major new ventures in 2014.  "VODwiz" is a new video-on-demand portal for independent films, structured similarly to Netflix and Amazon's streaming services;  "Medallion International Pictures" is the company's international sales and financing operation, designed to provide Hannover House with up to five, high-profile theatrical features each year.

Parade of Hits

Hannover's early successes in book publishing were sparked by critical acclaim and commercial success with "Sacred Prey" and "Quietus" from novelist / screenwriter Vivian Schilling.  The Company achieved its first # 1 Best-Seller on Amazon.com (and it's highest position on the New York Times Best-Sellers list) with the 2003 release of  Blood, Money and Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K. by Barr McClellan.  The addition of DVD products in 2003 marked a turning point for the Company, as a steady slate of releases achieved top-selling status for Walmart and other major retailers, both as new releases as well as within the popular Budget Bins.

Top selling DVD titles include (listed alphabetically):  Classic Comedies Pack, Classic TV Pack, Come Away Home, Fun Park, Future Shock, Grand Champion, Martial Arts Action Pack, Samurai Action Pack, Twelve and Zombie Warz. At present, Hannover House is releasing about 24 titles each year to the DVD / Blu-Ray and V.O.D. markets in North America, with three-to-five titles also enjoying some degree of theatrical release.  The new productions being funded through Medallion International Pictures are expected to have broad, nationwide theatrical release support.
