Sigh...you REALLY don't know how this shit works, do you? Let old Hairy break it down for ya, mmkay?
1.-Corp A MBA (Master of Being an Asshole) gets hired, he fires everybody and replaces them with outsourcing. 2.- Because you have a broken stock market thanks to the billions pumped in by the feds thanks to 401Ks and 403Bs you have a market filled with gamblers so the second they see Corp A profits went up? Stock bounces, MBA gets credit for his "aggressive cost cutting measures". 3.- MBA cashes out, gets hired by new corp based on his "stellar cost cutting skills" at Corp A. 4.- Corp A goes belly up but by that time MBA has moved on and so gets none of the blame! Lather rinse repeat.
If you want a couple examples of this in action just look at Circuit City, where the MBA fired all the high paid employees (who were making that much because they were highly knowledgeable and good at making sales) and replaced them with any kid they could get off the street. Stock bounced, cash out, company went to shit because the kids didn't know shit and just wandered the store. Or AMD, who is just now beginning to struggle back from the horrible blow dealt to them by their MBA, which at a critical juncture fired all the chip designers and replaced them with automated layouts, which give you more than 10% wasted space and more power usage than hand design. Stock bounced, he cashed out, lather rinse repeat.
So I hate to break the news to ya, but logic and sanity? Really have no place in this arena, we're talking about an arena run by sociopaths that have NO problem burning a place to the ground and costing thousands of their fellow Americans everything they own if it'll give them a 10% stock bounce and a golden parachute. Remember the words of Thomas Jefferson "Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains."
