Flight of jobs from Ireland

DUBLIN -- While reading Adventures in Code by John Sterne, I encountered a paragraph that I never expected to read when first settling down in Ireland in the mid-90s.

It is ironic that, at a time when the biggest talking point in the American software industry is the outsourcing of jobs to economies like India and China, Irish exporters say that they are saving money by creating additional employment at their offices in the US.
