I think he is right - replacing American workers by cheap foreign
workers (called outsourcing) is excellent for America - for
rich America. Replacing American $80k/year engineer by $5k Indian engineer
saves corporation $75k/year - which means bigger bonuses for corporate
management. And not only big management gains - they can spend more
money on lobbying the Senate and Congress - that means our politicians
gain too.
And the truth is that American voters overwhelmingly support this trend
- about 80% of them will be voting for Bush/Kerry team - both support
replacing American workers by cheap foreigners.
