Visions of the outsourced future

Seen on LinkedIn recently.

Hmm, an Indian RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) firm is looking to hire a recruiter (in India, bandwidth is cheap) for a US retailer... that in all likelihood mostly sells products made in China.

First American manufacturing moved overseas and now services like IT, accounting and HR process follow and then what's left? No matter how inexpensive the goods are in this unnamed US-retailers' stores, who will be able purchase these goods? Perhaps tourists from the Far East?
