The fact that some people can laugh at what others deem offensive demonstrates free speech in our society. One of the creators of “Saturday Night Live” once said the show finds humor around potentially offensive topics because you can’t ignore the elephant in the room. Exporting jobs to India and China may be that elephant, and unemployment is certainly no laughing matter. But let’s be clear, our economy depends on companies outsourcing services: It’s been estimated that more than 70 percent of the North American workforce serves companies that perform some form of outsourced services. Let’s understand what outsourcing really is: A business strategy where one company performs a service for another company (or individual) that chooses not to do it themselves. For example, using an accountant to do your taxes is outsourcing. Going to the doctor is contracting with a subject matter expert. Have you eaten at a restaurant? I love letting a skilled chef cook my meal. From where I sit, politicians and the media have completely distorted the truth about a strategy that is inherent in our society. It’s offshoring, not outsourcing, that really rankles: Having someone from another country do work that could be done at home (and even that often makes strategic sense). It’s time to quit bashing an industry we depend on and to honestly face today’s economic realities. If at the same time you can chuckle at an elephant in the room, why not?
