On the other hand, there are facts of society and government that get in the
way of simple transactions for engineering work (or any other work) such as:
tax obligations, relative standards and costs of living, military
obligations (or lack thereof), government intervention, worker "protection"
laws, etc.  Unless these various issues are "equalized" (HAHAHA) there will
be little realistic comparison of
 cost or quality of work.

To a certain extent, what you are saying is true. However, such issues as
tax obligations,...,etc.  have nothing to do with the quality of design work
you could get from outsourcing.

I am not calling for US engineers to outsource their work, most probably the
case in the US, like the rest of the world, is that supply of structural
engineers is more than the demand for them.
Just try to maintain an open mind and realize it is a two way street.
