If I hear one more word about how outsourcing is destroying our country I’m going to puke. In all honesty, are people just completely stupid? Have they taken any economics classes? I haven’t taken formal classes and even I know that outsourcing actually brings more jobs back to the country. I don’t want to go into deep economic theory on this, but, it doesn’t take too much to make sense of this.
The main reason for outsourcing, is greater output for less money. When you can hire two workers in one place for the price of one worker in another place, even if you sacrifice a small amount of quality, its made up for in quantity, your company will make more money and will be able to sell a cheaper product, thereby giving you an advantage over the competition, forcing your competition to find ways to lower their prices, or make a better product for the same price, and everybody wins. Not only that, but since products cost less, companies in America can afford to hire more workers, (yeah, thats you) and the cycle continues.
Another thing that is bothering me, is how people blame the President for their losing their job. THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT HIRE OR FIRE ANYONE! All the President can do is try and create the right climate for individuals to create jobs. Also, lets think about this. Alot of people want the government to secure their jobs, but they don’t realize the reprecusions of their flawed policies. Sure it sounds good on paper to say, “No one is allowed to fire people anymore.” so that everyone has job security. But lets look at the consequences of that idea.
Before we had refridgerators, ice men delivered ice to people to put in an ice box, where the kept their food cold. When refrigerators became so numerous that ice men were no longer needed, they lost their jobs. Should we have banned people from using refrigerators because it would have caused the ice man to be without work? NO! Thats ridiculous. If the government decided that everyone shoudl have job security, than no new inventions would be able to be created that could possibly harm any sector of jobs.
In conclusion, if this doesn’t make sense to you, go to North Korea.
