another side of the outsourcing debate

i'm somewhat ambivalent when it comes to outsourcing issues. i know folks that have lost their jobs to outsourcing, so i can see that side of it. i also ran a small manufacturing company's production department for a time. we made machines that cost about $2000 to build in Hayward California. we had a delegation from china that offered to build our machines, to our specs, delivered to our company, for a little less than $600 each. there were a number of reasons why we didn't go that way, but most of the reasons were administrative. how does a company compete?

anyway, here is an article discussing outsourcing etc from the online mag Insight.
