Buying American-made products would likely help with the immediate recession by creating more jobs. But, in the long term, it will damage our economy badly. The rest of the world needs us to once again provide a solid financial backbone, and we need them to produce the tools and merchandise that we enjoy so much. In short, ‘buying American’ is only mortgaging our future. Trade is the route to salvation.
When people create them foreign they do not know who’s going to use them and their getting paid near nothing. (Winkipeida, 2013) Outsourcing jobs does lower the price of products but jobs should stay here in the US to build our economy and give American’s their jobs back, after all the information and facts that have been included I hope you can make the correct decision and do your part to bring jobs home to America.

(Greene, 2006) Outsourcing should not be allowed to cause U.S. citizens to be jobless, or receive low wages due to business relocating their productions to other countries. Moreover, if free trades continues in the way that it is going, it will bring down America's average wage. Furthermore, if big companies still keep getting tax breaks for buying machinery less and less workers will be needed, meaning, that people will be out of work.
The Outsourcing of American Jobs The exporting of American jobs is an issue that is important and will become increasingly so as more and more white collar jobs are shipped overseas. American companies in the past few decades have been sending American jobs overseas paying residents of other countries pennies on the dollar what they had paid American workers to do. This saves the companies millions of dollars on labor costs but costs Americans precious jobs. As the problem of job outsourcing becomes more of an issue in politics, elected officials like the President and Congress will no longer be able to ignore the dilemma. The war in Iraq has been at the forefront of the presidential race but the importance of outsourcing American jobs seems to have been slightly overshadowed.
While John Kerry has emphasized, that he is going to stop the outsourcing of American job . With the presidential election coming up, and the candidates giving mixed signals about the effects of outsourcing, it could turn out to be a decisive issue. A recent poll said 22 per cent considered outsoursing somewhat important while 68 per cent said it was very important . Not to astray, for many years Americans have witnessed the outsourcing of labour-intensive production, such as manufacturing. And the US economy has actully gained from it, in terms of higher productivity.
For us to better our economy and decrease favoritism we have to give better open doors to the working class. The legislature has attempted to help the white collar class by expanding the base compensation, yet as opposed to helping it made landing positions substantially more troublesome. Presently that organizations know the base compensation has expanded they are turning into a considerable measure stricter on the individuals they enlist.

To make the American dream less demanding for everybody to attain we have to defy the most concerning issue we have, which is wage imbalance.
While Bernie Sanders disagrees with American outsourcing, I cannot. Sanders’ argument focuses generally on American jobs, claiming that “We have been losing millions of jobs as a direct result of our disastrous trade policies … We must do everything possible to stop companies from outsourcing jobs” (44). While perhaps low-skill manufacturing jobs are gone, macroeconomics proves that the increased economic efficiency outweighs the initial unemployment. The outsourcing of low-skill labor allows national economic focus on high skill labor outputs. This situation allows the for price of exports to go up and keeps the costs of imports low - a favorable condition for the growth of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
Other countries that are suitable to perform the jobs needed may demand less money to finish the jobs. The main purpose of this paper is to explain why businesses should outsource to other countries that can do the work they need at a cheaper cost. Many Americans blame outsourcing for the current unemployment rates, even though the amount of Americans on financial assistance programs that are currently unemployed and are not looking for a job is high. This paper is intended for those that blame outsourcing on the unemployment rates and for American businesses that want to provide quality goods at a reasonable cost for American consumers. This paper will inform the audience on the benefits of why businesses should outsource.

The lack of knowledge Americans have on the subject of consumers affecting outsourcing is leading our country to economic stress but if we begin to recognize the issue, the jobs we could potentially save may be our own. We have examined how consumers unintentionally assist the growth of outsourcing and the different ways we as individuals can attribute to a solutions. Also we have explored an attempt the government has taken and how people are trying to further this attempt and gain further understanding so we can work towards a successful solution.
This, in turn, is hurting the U.S. industries and contributing to the need for more outsourcing. If we can somehow break this cycle, we can improve the economy and end the foreclosure crisis. I believe that targeting the lack in sales of American-made products is the best way to solve the problem. If business stays in America, if there is a large enough demand for American-made goods, domestic companies will stabilize. They can then afford to keep the jobs in the U.S.
