As America plunges in to recession, many consumers are looking for cheaper, more economical solutions to their daily needs. As companies compete against each other to meet our growing demands for cheaper products, many are forced to outsource to China, and India. Such actions complicate things in countries where the companies were originally based, causing many problems. When companies outsource to cheaper countries like China, the most prominent thing that happens is unemployment in the original country. Even though cheaper products is better for the consumer, many times this can lead to a weakening infrastructure and possibly a recession in the country that they were originally based in. Many of those countries need those jobs to support their economy. For example, in America, unemployment rates are rapidly increasing, and more and more main working class people are just hired immigrants illegal and legal. Before, the American image was hard working, doing any jobs for our country. Now, I'm not so sure we have the same image, partly from the unpopular wars that we fight. Outsourcing to only a few main countries also cause other problems. If China's economy falls into a recession, much of their exports will stop, causing a major decrease in the number of supplies to many major countries like the U.S.. Outsourcing is sort of like buying oil from the Middle East; we are sending our jobs and money overseas, that could have been used to help stimulate our own economy, not theirs. If China is to become a world superpower along with the U.S., it won't be entirely from their own actions that cause their increase in power; it will also be from our actions too, handing them our ability to have a true workforce.
