To allow free individuals to accurately determine value, some things must be known to the buyer. The seller provides those pieces of information to the buyer, who demands this information to decide if to make a purchase. Quality, Service, and Price are the key pieces of info in determining value to the buyer. 

Now, in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis, we ask the U.S. Government, to require that the Country of Origin must be PROMINENTLY DISCLOSED on products and services in our country. This means that the seller ACTIVELY DISCLOSE where the product or service came from. In short, the two most prominent pieces of information disclosed shall be 

1) Price

2) Country of Origin

This requirement will allow consumers to fully consider the value offered. For example, consider that a bicycle made in a totalitarian country and is for sale to the public for $200.00 each. However, another bicycle of the same qual is available and made in a country with a good human rights record. Let us say, the cost for this choice is $300.00. A buyer may prefer to pay more for products of a particular origin, and the ability to make such a selection would be provided if adopted.

Internet commerce is the area most in need of this proposed requirement, but this disclosure shall be required on all transactions occurring in the USA (although the adoption of this petition by all countries is encouraged).
