What are the positive effects to the economy of outsourcing or offshoring jobs?


The labor cost is one of the factor why companies or manufacturing industries outsource jobs and in general we think that this is a negative thing. Are there even positive effects to the economy if we outsource the jobs?

    Why outsource? Sooner or later someone in the outsourcing country will decide to clone the work you are outsourcing and sell it direct to your customers for less. Outsource making shoes and suddenly shoe factories will spring up.

    But that is capitalism, in order for the business to have more profits, the costs should be reduced, in this case, labor? Do you believe that when a company profits, it will increase its investments and in turn gives more tax to the country?
