  2. 2. Outsourcing: A Zero Sum Game? <ul><li>Contrary to widely expressed apprehensions, the US has always benefited from Outsourcing. This alarmism has always been misguided. It was never a zero-sum game, with benefits from other countries' investment including: </li></ul><ul><li>Job Creation </li></ul><ul><li>Economic Growth </li></ul><ul><li>These economic efficiencies have only worked to the benefit of the US. That is the only reason that the administration has continued to stay on the side of outsourcing, which is now an integral part of global trade. Even now, if its critics succeed in provoking a new wave of American protectionism, the consequences will be disastrous -- for the U.S. economy and for the American workers they claim to defend. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Job Creation and Economic Growth <ul><li>The US economy has experienced a positive effect by offshoring work to other countries. Restrictions on outsourcing may save a few jobs in the short run, but they will come at the expense of better jobs in the future, jobs that will not be created. Increased economic globalization has caused jobs to move to the US as well as away from it. And because of the higher, increasing productivity of American workers, the jobs that move to the US pay more than the ones that leave. </li></ul><ul><li>The truth is that outsourcing is far less of a threat to American workers than they imagine. Their apprehension over outsourcing will diminish as the economic expansion reduces the unemployment rate. </li></ul>
