Who is more to blame for American jobs being outsourced: the American government and companies, or the other countries that permit American companies to come in and pay their citizens more than its own companies do?

it wouldn't be an option if we didn't ask to use workshops in foreign places.

Companies that pay cheap

Anti-business politicians/laws are probably most to blame.

This is kind of like the question about whether the egg or the chicken came first. If you think about it, this could go either way.

If the other countries didn't pay so cheap and make it so alluring for companies to go there, then we wouldn't have an outsourcing problem.

On the other hand, if our country made it better for business here, then the companies would have no reason to outsource jobs.

It comes down to 1 thing, take care of your own. How can our own government be so simpleminded, as to destroy it's own economy.

How could the other countries pass up jobs?

Companies and Government, they work together and try to make the biggest profit they can, no matter what the cost. They could still make a large profit if they set up shop here, in America, but they decide to file for bankruptcy and get a huge check from the government, then they move to southeast asia or Mexico.

Too much education. Now that Americans are on the whole, becoming more and more educated, they don't want some crappy factory job.

I blame the Irish.

Government and companies. This isn't just America, this is history. Those in power have always supported industry because industries make money, and if they make more money so does the government.

Mostly the companies, considering the U.S. government takes a mostly laissez-faire approach.
