Look where outsourcing gets us! The theft of tens of thousands of tax dollars because people have been sold on the economies of outsourcing and were not patriotic enough to provide jobs for people in their communities ("AccuPay lawsuits mounting," March 5). And since our very "big" government, according to the Republicans, has been outsourcing its work for the past 30 years to private contractors and subcontractors, does this mean that private American citizens have been stealing from their own government?

Joe Corbi's Wholesale Pizza announced Thursday it has outsourced its fundraising operations to national management firm Fundraising Manager. The Baltimore-based pizza company said the move will allow Corbi's to renew its focus on manufacturing by allowing Fundraising Manager to handle logistics. "Partnering with Fundraising Manager takes us another step closer to that goal because they have the infrastructure, systems, and connections to most efficiently work with the thousands of schools, sports teams, and other groups that love to sell our products to raise money for their programs," said Drew McManigle, Corbi's president.

Today I am wearing my Indonesian shirt and my pants from China. Do we really need an economist to tell us what's happening in our country? While I understand and approve of our trying to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves, outsourcing has to have a downward effect on the economy of the USA. Because this country has been the top economy in the world, there is no place for us to go but down. If China ever calls in our debt to her, we are going to be dead in the water.

In a recent Sun op-ed piece ("What is killing jobs," Aug. 27) a writer parroted the propaganda spread by proponents of outsourcing - that jobs are sent overseas because Americans aren't well versed in math and science and can't compete in the high tech realm. Except most jobs lost to overseas markets are not high tech at all. Politicians can blather about creating biotech and high tech jobs and training all of America for them. The truth is that these jobs will barely make a dent on overall unemployment.

BEFORE WE GET TO today's column, I have an important announcement regarding outsourcing. "Outsourcing" is a business expression that means, in layperson's terms, "sourcing out." It's a trend that started years ago in manufacturing, which is a business term that means "making things." You youngsters won't believe this, but there was a time when Americans actually made physical things called "products" right here in America. Workers would go to large grimy buildings called "factories," where they would take a raw material such as iron ore and perform industrial acts on it, such as "forging" and "smelting."

CHICAGO -- Consider two countries. One is a developing nation with lots of dirt-cheap labor that has become an exporting giant. The other has been importing more and more products from abroad and losing manufacturing jobs by the millions. You might guess that the first country is China. The second? That's China, too. From 1995 to 2002, it lost 15 million manufacturing jobs. Its imports have grown rapidly in recent years. Yet you can hardly say those trends are symptoms of decline, since China's economy is perennially among the world's fastest growing.

William A. Haseltine had a 55-acre, half-billion-dollar compound and a manufacturing plant built for his former biotech company, Human Genome Sciences, despite its having never brought a single product to market. With a facade made entirely of reflective glass, the six-story corporate headquarters juts into the sky almost invisibly. Inside, an atrium-style lobby has a lush garden and a 100-foot-long sculpture that depicts the birth of a protein. The floor is made of fossilized stone tile, and light filters through panels in the ceiling.

IN A RECENT edition of People magazine, there was a description of a new parenting trend: outsourcing. Busy moms and dads can pay someone to teach their children to ride a two-wheeler, to potty-train their toddlers, to bake cupcakes for a birthday snack at school or sew Scout badges on a uniform. And, on the ABC News Web site, there was a report on the increasing number of parents who attend classes and support groups or hire coaches to make them better parents. Finally, a cover story in New York magazine profiled Isabel Kallman, the "Alpha Mom," an energetic new mother who has plans for a 24-hour cable network of the same name that will provide nothing but expert advice for other new mothers.

IN THE LEXICON of civil service, outsourcing is too often a dirty word. It shouldn't be. The truth is governments that effectively outsource services better performed by the private sector have more money to do the important work that many people go into civil service to do - the work that the public counts on and values most. None of this is foreign to Marylanders. Right here in the state, the Army is doing it. The Navy is doing it. And the state already uses private companies to deliver important services, including health care services for the poor, math instruction, operation of the Motor Vehicle Administration's electronic licensing system and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's data and technology systems.

Baltimore-based Mars Super Markets Inc. plans to close its Edison Highway distribution center on March 9 and lay off 78 workers, the company said Monday. The 70-year-old family owned chain, which has 17 supermarkets in the Baltimore area, notified the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation of the closing and said it plans to work with the new distributor to place workers in jobs. The grocer will outsource supply and distribution to Bozzuto's Inc. to better compete with larger regional and national chains, said Chris D'Anna, Mars' chairman and CEO, in a statement.

President Barack Obama is slamming Republican challenger Mitt Romney for heading companies that were "pioneers in outsourcing U.S. jobs," while Mr. Romney is accusing Mr. Obama of being "the real outsourcer in chief. " These are the dog days of summer, and this is the silly season of presidential campaigns. But can we get real, please? The American economy has moved way beyond outsourcing abroad or even "in-sourcing. " Most big companies headquartered in America don't send jobs overseas and don't bring jobs here from abroad.

Marta Mossburg wrote in a recent Frederick News Post column that "people like easy answers" where "facts … often play a minor supporting role in our decision-making process. " Ironically, she proves her point in a different column appearing the same day in The Sun ("General Assembly elevates the trivial, neglects pension reform," April 10) when she notes that Del. Andrew Serafini, a Washington County Republican, has a novel proposal in search of a problem: outsource the duties of the State Retirement System's Chief Investment Officer to a consultant - an idea the facts do not support.

LINVILLE, N.C. -- Globalization seems like a nice idea - if it didn't make people insane. Although there are no such studies that I know of, a graph might show that Americans have been consuming increasing quantities of antidepressants in direct correlation to the growth of corporate call centers overseas.

STANFORD, Calif. - Outsourcing - the subject of intense controversy this election year - is blamed for the loss of jobs in the United States, but outsourcing should be nothing new to Americans. The founding and development of America are the result of English outsourcing in the 17th and 18th centuries. James I was crowned king of England in 1603. At that time, his fledgling nation of 4.2 million people was beginning to compete with its more populous, wealthy and powerful Spanish and French rivals.

Recent stories in The Sun regarding contracting out by the State Highway Administration provide some important warnings to those who recommend the privatization of state services. Advocates of privatizing state services are quick to suggest that such actions save money, improve efficiency, and bring more "business sense" to state government. In fact, such activities often end up costing more, creating duplication of services, and leading to corruption. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees of Maryland provided an early warning to the O'Malley administration of problems in the Department of Transportation through a letter to then-DOT Secretary John Porcari in July of 2007.
