<quote>So the choice is to make them overseas or don't make them at all.</quote>
In this case ( and others ), the company had the workers, was presumably profitable, and the company elected to outsource anyway.
So, I am not convinced this argument flys always.
<quote>The problem is you are now paying tariffs and more money for the items.</quote>
You are not paying tariffs, by definition. You are paying ( more, I will certainly grant you ) for the items, but you are paying that within your economy.
At levels consistent with the cost of other goods in your economy
( this is what the turkeys pushing for outsourcing dont get, not only do you loose someone paid enough to afford the expensive goods you are trying to sell ( here, because, by definition, they cant afford them where you are outsourcing to ), but you are performing wage arbitrage. Sounds good to them "cheap wages now, and later on too!", but you cant sell at the price points you want, because you pushed money out of your local system ( and if you believe the other countries participating will reciprocate, I have a unicorn to sell you ) and made less available to yourself. All because you think "ill have an extra helping now, screw those who come after me". )
<quote>This is the problem with trying to centrally plan an economy.</quote>
Why bring in "central planning"? There is a lot of area between "all planned at the top" and "nothing planned at the top".
