It is import duties imposed by third world countries that cause american goods to be expensive. Believe me, from personal experience, poor people from other countries wish they could buy american goods.
What stuff do we make that poor people cannot purchase just as cheaply from one or more Asian companies? John Deere Tractors?

The country I visited had all imported goods priced extremely high. You cannot purchase a battery powered box fan for less than $240 USD there.
That's exactly the kind of stuff that China makes more cheaply that we do.
