    In dollars, how much does such a position get? Is such a position pay about
    what a McDonald's position pays in the US? Just curious.

    Good question as US programmers will end up working the fryer at McD's
    as they ship our jobs off-shore.

    Heck, you work the fryer, I want to be at a cash register, that way I can
    talk to all the girlies. Maybe I can meet a rich girl and marry her for her
    money. That way I won't have to work, and I can just program for fun instead
    of for some cheesy guy who wants me to have 30yrs for java experience and
    6yrs of c#, etc., and pays McD's salaries because off-shoring costs that
    much.

    Well, how much does McD's pay? You can get around USD 1,000 per
    month. And you can lead a lavish life over here (in Bangalore)
    for that kind of money. You won't get rich by any standards
    (not even Indian standards), but presumably you aren't getting
    any rich in the US either.

    If you're not a citizen, then you have the problem of getting a
    work permit. I guess the "leading multinational" can take care
    of that.

    $12k USD per year? Wow...are you saying that cost of living
    in Bangalore is that cheap? There's not much info on this
    job, but a typical Java programmer with 3-10 years of exp can
    make $50-110k per year in the US. This depends on skills,
    experience, job responsibilites, and the individual company.

    Many developers here in the US worry about this type of drain
    to foreign shores, but I have to imagine that as you have more
    and more affluent people, the cost of living will go up, but
    in the mean time this causes serious problems till some sort
    of balance is achieved.

    You can see why so many companies find it attractive to farm
    their development oversees for prices like this.

    $1 == Rs.45-Rs.50 (more or less)

    A bottle of 200 millilitres Coke costs Rs.5/- (10 cents?)
    Does that compare well with the US? (Maybe that's a most stupid
    way to compare.)

    Yes, and some poor Indian programmer here once dreamed of having
    a job in the US :) making that kind of money. For a moment, if
    you ignore the American vs. alien thing, you realise that the
    offshoring fad has affected *everyone*.

    Standard of living will go up, and we shall consume more
    American products. The Indian consumer is already living on
    foreign stuff, in line with the open-trade policy of the govt
    since 1991. Even the govt buys Microsoft, IBM and Oracle
    (though there has been a movement to push the govt into buying
    open source software). This will only make American companies
    richer.

    The problem is that a few rich Americans have decided to get
    richer at the cost of the rest. I'm not an economist, but I
    believe that's the way it works.

    Making USD $75k per year puts you in the top 5% of wage earners
    in the country. Unless you're living beyond your means, you are
    getting richer.

    Coke is as good as anything else, I guess. Where I live in
    New Hampshire, cans of Coke go for like $0.75 and have about
    330ml (I think). So that's considerably more expensive.
    Bought in the supermarket it's considerably cheaper, 2 liter
    bottles for like $1 which is about the same price.

    That's the way capitalism works, like it or not. It's also
    the reason many American software companies have started to
    use offshore programmers, it's cheaper and while selling the
    software for the same price they make more of a profit. Of
    course many of the larger companies like IBM are hardly
    exclusive American companies anymore, they are large multi-
    national corporations.

    Yep, it is. I have no objection to someone making lots of
    of money, I have the same opportunity, it's just a matter
    of being able to see it and exploit it before anyone else
    or better than anyone else. Wish it was as easy to do as
    it is to describe.

    As far as offshore programmers, it makes an exploitable
    opportunity now, but the cost for doing it will gradually
    rise to the point where it makes less and less finacial
    sense which has to be weighted against the problems involved
    in doing it. At least I hope so. In any event, I have to
    adapt to the situation, no use getting pissed off at it.
    Only constant is things change and trying to stop it means
    getting squashed and left behind.

    So if anyone knows of any decent Java/C++ postions in the
    North Boston Metro area, I've got a resume to send you ;-).

    I think at this point the strategy should be to form small
    software (outsourcing) companies that outsource work to India.
    You can get the cost advantage, which you offer to your clients.
    Small businesses can't afford to set up their own operations in
    other countries like India, so getting the work done for them at
    a low cost would be win-win.

    Some US programmers should/will take the lead and become
    businessman/managers.

    If anyone wants to outsource small projects to India, I've got a
    few contacts who would be willing to take it up. This way you
    can bid a low price to your client. The tough part, as usual,
    would be managing the project.

    An interesting thread, thanks for participating Manish.

    Managing the project is always a challenge. In fact, my response to the
    "outsourcing" movement has been to move up the food chain by starting my own
    company. Ironically, it is a Project Management software package that
    supports utilizing resources that are on differing schedules in different
    time zones. It is written in Java of course.

    I haven't outsourced the development though, I'm the only developer and I
    don't want to move. ;-)

    Project Management is used most extensively in service/consulting companies
    as they are bidding and trying to make sure they don't underbid. Is project
    management a common activity among Indian tech companies Manish?
