Default Is Outsourcing Tech Support Overseas a Good Idea?

When manufacturing left the United States, the tech sector was
supposed to be the new frontier. Americans rushed out to be retrained.
Students set their sites on computer engineering. Our tech sector was
so good, it created the very systems that made it possible to replace
itself. Corporations discovered that an Indian college graduate will
work at a call center for 10,000 rupees a month, or just under $60.00
a week. I have no malice for our Indian friends, they only want to
work. But our kids are going to have to become proficient at more than
playing video games and watching movies to compete with this highly
educated and driven mass of hungry labor! Math anyone?

Is eating out rather than cooking a Good Idea?
Is building your own funiture a good idea? etc, etc, etc.

Is all about economic .....

Yet, there are far less engineering graduates in the U.S. than India and China; a huge difference than 30 years ago.

Are any of your children engineers?? If you don't have one, why not?
