||Most product and service companies out-source. And it has always been
||considered correct as long as the company putting its brand on the end
||product ensures quality.  Whats so different about engineering?
||
||As I see it, there are two issues here.
||One is about money being taken out of US citizens and given to
||outsiders.  The answer to this one is simple:
||Americans are better than us at food and entertainment business. So we
||eat at there Pizza Huts(most popular restaurant here), drink Pepsi(80%
||of our cola market) and watch Titanic (braking all viewership 
||records).
||We are better at engineering design and writing software, so the
||Americans buy it from us.
||
||The other issue is direct responsibility:
||My last boss used to sign drawings after first glance through them. He
||was the only licensed engineer in the company and his only other
||contribution was dealing with the clients. But, this was 
||supposed to be
||his direct supervision, since we were working in his office instead of
||remote and getting salaries instead of payment on job basis.
