With the upcoming presidential elections it is important to consider some of the country's most controversial issues such as the outsourcing of American jobs. Americans from all different walks of life have a unique voice on these issues. This question prompt is meant to encourage you to find your unique perspective on outsourcing. For some Americans, outsourcing is a key business tactic that allows them to live on a fixed income through smart investments; for other Americans, outsourcing limits their employment opportunities; moreover, some akin outsourcing as a modern-day form of slavery.

Agreed. I particularly like the word 'corporatocracy.' It definitely characterizes what the entire political world is becoming. Did you coin this word yourself? I think it's brilliant.
No bro, it's even an official word.
I was curious too. I looked it up. Interesting. Its etymology shares being of 17th century origin. A peek may be found at Govermentvs.com . . . Thanks for introducing me to it :-)
I don't understand why we are obligated to make sure that these people make money by outsourcing and denying Americans jobs. Why are they the privileged few just because they have money"
You can't get rich without enriching others in some way with products or services. Entrepreneurs are what make capitalism work. Average people have 401ks, mutual funds, & IRA accounts for retirement. When these companies fail it hurts us.
Trying to restrict outsourcing will only restrict global trade, which benefits no one in the long run. Outsourcing of jobs is a symptom of a weak economy an important cause in our case is the worlds highest corporate tax rate.
Great point. The fewer people and companies who pay taxes the more the remaining taxpayers have to pay.
Thanks, Mike! It would be a wise decision to bring American jobs back to American soil. The big businesses would easily disagree with us though. Why pay employees $10 per hour in America when they can pay $0.05 per hour for employees overseas?
