    Is outsourcing jobs overseas patriotic?

    We now here calls that the U.S. must confront the rise of China. However, China's rise has been facilitated by the outsourcing of U.S. manufacturing to places like China, and selling those cheap goods to U.S. consumers. As such, is the outsourcing of jobs overseas patriotic?

    Nossir. I wouldn't go so far as to call it treason.... but it damn sure isn't patriotic.

    Is doing something that's harmful for the US economy unpatriotic?

    Re: Is outsourcing jobs overseas patriotic?

    It's neither patriotic nor un patriotic.

    I'm torn on the issue becuase I have no problem buying foreign goods, on the other hand I prioritize buying goods in this order

    1) US
    2) Canada
    3) South America
    4) Asia

    In that order, which means I mainly buy US and Canadian goods when there is a choice.

    Sometimes there is not

    Building a successful company is a credit to the US. If outsourcing is what it takes then so be it. Most of the money will be coming to America and to American jobs in any case. Americans benefit from having access to inexpensive goods.

    the people who own those manufacturers dont care about what's "patriotic" it's all about the bottom line

    And the bottom line is exactly what a CEO's focus should be. He has a duty to shareholders to maximize their investment. Economic success makes America great.

    As long as no U.S. laws are broken, who cares?

    The U.S. foreign policy establishment appears to think that the rise of China's power that is associated with the wealth that they have gained from such outsourcing is a problem.
