    If I got $45,000 (~£26,500) for programming I'd be pretty happy. I don't know what typical American programmer salaries are (I just checked >>> $90,000), but £26,500 is about typical for someone with around 2-3yrs experience here in the UK. You'll probably find that Indian programmers take home only about $3,000 (a guess) of that $40,000 figure quoted, with the remainder going to cover the cost of having work done overseas.

    There's another superpower on the rise. Still far away but coming either way. The european union.

    I dont see what the 'problem' is with someone else doing the same job for less pay. Now, if its that your nation might be harmed by that, then your nation needs to adjust.

    Einstein was right...

    I think I am going to rename this thread to "The Argument Thread". Or delete it. One or the other....
