Wow--Flat picker-- read the article. Interesting--but the math is simply wrong. The assumption are also all wrong. For example--The author is looking at in a static business case with no outside pressure from competitors! Certainly you can agree that taxes at any rate won't help if your competitor is making widgets cheaper, selling them cheaper and driving your enterprise out of business?

I hope the people that look at the video take the time to follow the link to the article that inspired the song. Government policy controls outsourcing, not the worker. Americans cannot work cheaply enough nor become un-union enough to keep jobs here. Only government policy can keep jobs here. The article explains the tax structure that makes it profitable to lay you off or send your job out of the country.

I guess one solution to this problem is keep 30% of the jobs reserved for Americans. This will solve both the problems, Companies will benefit from outsourcing as well as some jobs stay within US.

Feel sorry for Phil & Anne. But the job outsourcing is inevitable. Obama's current efforts of going around the world for bringing jobs back to America is like bringing back water in teaspoons after a drought.
