How true, the U.S. economy is in a shambles, they are off-shoring everything, especially to their new Chinese colony and letting their domestic workforce languish.

If I were in India, I'd be looking for a job catering to the Indian economy, not tied to America. This may seem odd, but look at Bollywood, they are now the largest film industry in the world, and they got there because they didn't give a rodent's rectum about what America thought of their work.

All the people looking for the best chance to "go onsite" are selling their own country short.

Actually models on which Bollywood and Indian IT industry here work are different.Bollywood doesn't hesitate to accept money from drug lords,smugglers,hoteliers,diamond merchants of Indian dispora spread across the world.Big chunk of black,unacountable money is invetsed in making Indian films.This is not the case with IT company.No Indian diamond merchant or Poteliar is going to invest in IT company where he is not sure of getting the returns.As a result companies have to look somewhere else.

I'm sure the models are different, film has been around much longer than IT. Having been involved in both I don't believe the corruption is actually different in kind (cf. Worldcomm). The point I was making is that it's a mistake to bet your future and that of your country on another economy over which you have no control. A different administration in the states could decide to bring everything back home or send it all to Mexico. Being from Canada provides me with a much longer perspective on this issue.

Canada has been tied to the US for over 100 years, often to our detrement, if you haven't heard of the softwood lumber and beef issues between Canda and the US, you should look it up. These are areas that are supposed to be free trade according to the NAFTA treaty, but the US continues to block trade. On softwood lumber they have lost several trade tribual ruling but continue anyway.

Right now a Californian governor is working to bring the US film industry back to the States, from Canada where production is much cheaper.

You are right.Actually many companies are working on local projects too.For example Tata Consultancy Services,besides sending boys to every corner of world also executes some of the Govt. projects.Patni,although major revenue comes from offshore clients does some projects for Department of defence.There are many midsize and uncounted small companies too working exclusively for Indian clients.
The problem with Indian clients is revenue.You work for Indian client and your company gets $10 a day.You work for offshore client,you get >=$50 a day.Indian client definitely can not give the same as foreign offshore client.The situation is changing slowly.
