The goal is no longer maximum efficiency for institutions, but rather maximum economic stimulus using local labor pools. Debating the merits of outsourcing is moot. CEOs, CIOs, and CFOs should no longer have the option of outsourcing when they are receiving bailout money from taxpayers.

As people of other countries become more aware that we’ve migrated slavery abroad, they’ll rise up – and put us into the same, if not greater, ‘crisis’ than we had with the oil embargo of the 1970’s.

We’ve hired these people to come here, too. So very many of them live together in apartments filled only with mattresses and laptops.

Even a conservative Republican, Senator Grassley, is complaining that – perhaps – Microsoft is laying off at the same time as a morose Bill Gates went before Congress to plead for more H-1B visas. Just look at the “you’re technically the best” ( US workers are morons, Bill?) hype Microsoft gives to hire more for its burgeoning facilities in India. Poor, filthy rich Bill.

It is sad, too, that so very many of us helped to create this ‘nightmare’ by our development of satellite communications. It used to take days, even weeks, to move large quantities of data to and from overseas facilities.

Now, we dial an 800 number for technical support and get connected to the home of an Indian contractor. In a real sense, we sealed our own fate.

Unfortunately, americans, while capable of independent thought, are willingly allowing themselves to be influenced by the next smooth-talking politician or media personality. Even in the face of facts, we swallow the latest biased report or speech as if it were the bare truth. (i.e. doing nothing about political scandals, following a notorious bill through congress while a dozen more like pass under our noses, or electing officials based on their good looks/personalities, NOT on their experience and track record).

When the company I worked for computerized its operations, it cost them a few million dollars (a couple years back, remember) and six years to get a truly awkward program. I do wonder if custom programming farmed out to India is a false lead, and the input from the users in a generic program shouldn’t be tried first.

It is interesting to read the comments from educated Indians in defense of their country and from working class Americans blaming others for their problems. Both viewpoints are right to a degree. I wonder what comments would be made by Chinese workers making toothbrushes and toys for ten cents an hour. Indians and Chinese are naturally defensive about their new-found role in the global economy and want Americans to look elsewhere for someone to blame. Americans have been internally outsourcing manual labor jobs to illegal aliens and automating every clerical job once held by educated white-collar employees. Computers have probably cost Americans more high-paying jobs than India and China put together. American CEOs have been brutally focused on shareholder interests and have done everything possible, legally and illegally, to artificially elevate their stock prices. CEOs who do not lay off thousands of workers, outsource, automate, and consolidate are replaced by CEOs who will do these things. When corporations run the government through lobbyists and the ordinary civilians are denied basic needs like health insurance and pensions it is called fascism. Global overpopulation, modern transportation, and the internet have reduced the value of human labor to near zero. We are entering a new century where jobs and resources will become so scarce our children will starve. I miss the 20th century.
