If anyone had any doubt about the United States devolving into the Third World country, there is the story about outsourcing menial jobs previously done in India to America.
Interesting that in economic down times, "jobs" become so important that the quality of the product is hardly ever mentioned. A job means income and if inferior-quality products bring home the bacon, who's to quibble about something as unimportant as quality?
There is also the fact that many of those sacrosanct "jobs" pay significantly less than what they might have when there was an occasional interest in the quality of the product. Economic statistics pat the economy on the back for its uptick in jobs without examining what those jobs produce or the excellence they imply.
A Third World country is sad. But sadder still is a Third World mind.
