U.S. Business Schools Show The Way On Offshoring

There wouldn't be any need for money to be "plowed back into the economy" if they didn't "plow it out of the economy" by outsourcing American jobs in the first place. You don't need to be in a top business school to figure that out. --dmullarn

Capitalism is spreading, and America needs to get smarter and stronger in a global economy by leveraging our competitive nature. "Competitive protectionism" only ensures our demise. To argue against a global competitive market is to argue against capitalism. Let's get smarter as a country and show the world what we're capable of achieving, not isolating ourselves from competition. Great collaboration, UC Berkeley and IBM. --Joe

Americans are now being trained to be experts at sending other Americans' jobs overseas? Wow. How proud Mom and Dad must be of their little Berkeley grads. --JK

At HP, Mott Hasn't Changed His Outsourcing Stripes

It's a great thing to see that not all management is working to sell out their fellow Americans. We can compete with any workers from any other country in the world if given a level playing field. --Chris

HP Must Rebuild The Damage To Its Image

Having retired from HP, I have nothing but the utmost confidence in the integrity of Patricia Dunn. This situation is an unfortunate outcome of HP's strategy of "outsourcing" almost everything in the name of cost savings. I hope HP learns from this example, as much more was lost than was saved. --Dave
