A. Barton Hinkle on How Average Americans Are the Worst Outsourcers of All

|

Know who else is a horrible outsourcer? You. Chances are you have moved at least once in your life. If so, you took work away from your local grocer, hairdresser, and plumber and outsourced it to somebody else. What kind of evil, greedy monster are you?

Well. If we can save some jobs by stopping outsourcing at the U.S. border, writes A. Barton Hinkle, then just imagine how many more jobs we could save by forbidding companies to move jobs between states. And if Obama and Romney really want to create jobs, then they should propose a ban on interstate trucking – and maybe in-state trucking, too. Wall off the cities and make the inhabitants fend for themselves. That will keep 'em busy.
