...Americans are more productive than the workers of other countries, there must be something besides cheaper productivity (which is separate from cheap labor) that is encouraging businesses to leave the US.

Outsourcing Jobs To Foreign Countries - Life Online
Read this article, and there are many others that argue productivity does not drop due to outsourcing, but rather increases due to the ability of companies to hire more workers and still have costs lower than would be possible in the U.S.
It's completely un-American to insist those businessmen must be forced to stay on the oppressive business environment of the United States.
Why are companies outsourcing? Wage expenses, overhead expenses, benefit expenses, taxes, and regulations.
Want those companies to do business in the US? Rectify their problems, don't stick a gun in their face and say "or else".
Obama is a socialist and if he thought he wasn't promoting socialism, he wouldn't be doing it.
The reality is that free men don't need permission from their government to business with other free men.
The reality is that using the tax code to punish behavior, as people on this thread propose, is the most certain way of forcing whole businesses off shore.
The cost of living in these places is way different than in the U.S. that and would you rather work for $4 day and eat or not work and not eat.
Another thing you can do instead of working for $4 a day is rummage through garbage and hope to get enough from scrap to feed yourself.
Lets hope you don't get a cut with an infection.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
