Re: [PLUG] Interesting Outsourcing Article...

Isn't this just a problem with the underlying capitalism model of
business?  In the short run, it makes sense to reduce costs by any
means, in this case, outsourcing, in order to stay competitive.  In the
long run, however, the thing that keeps the economy afloat is not the
supply side but the demand side, and you need workers with money in
their pockets to buy your goods if you plan to actually sell things.

Just a short note on the basic schizophrenia of the model - nobody stays
in business trying to pay workers extravagantly, but that's the best way
to keep everyone in business.  Just a short note after too much scotch.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming :)
