India is actually starting to outsource some of their IT functions back the U.S.  One example of this is new trend is Tata's new facility:

"Tata Consultancy Services said last week it has opened a development center in a former paper plant outside Cincinnati, with initial plans to employ 1,000 people, which would make it one of the largest U.S. development centers by an India-based IT services company. The 200,000-square-foot facility will include a lab where TCS hopes to show off its experience in such areas as industrial engineering and services. TCS plans to hire Midwest tech talent for the facility."

Tata isn't alone, the trend of IT jobs returning to US shores via foreign employers may only be beginning.  We'll keep our fingers crossed.

I don't think people from India will call tech support and get transferred to a call center in the US anytime soon, nevertheless it is still nice to see we are getting a few jobs from them. With the dollar being so weak, it has become more realistic and more attractive for foreign companies to bring jobs to the US. Recently BMW proclaimed they would be bringing a sizable amount of jobs to their Spartanburg, SC plant after laying off 8,100 employees in Germany.

Thats part of the beauty of a weak dollar (I took an econ class once before I knew what to major in) -- weaker dollar = more foreign investments as then we make money and the other countries save money by investing in the U.S. Also this makes for more exports from the U.S. as well....
