Um, the same place as the guys who outsourced their RPG programming.

If I were concerned about buying American I'd be more concerned myself with
the majority of participating employees in the manufacturing process and its
supporting departments.  Where do they lay their heads?

If American business owners make decisions to outsource labor and materials
to other countries I can understand the driving forces of cost and/or
quality and/or competition.  I no longer view these businesses as purely
American anymore.  If I buy a BMW made in South Carolina or a Japanese
Chrysler import or a Toyota made in California I have to be realistic about
the fact that I'm compromising principles while supporting more than one
economy.

That seems to be what you mean by a global view, but it's more complicated
than we realize.
