Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From wikipedia:

Economists use the term "global labor arbitrage" to refer to the tendency of manufacturing jobs to flow towards whichever country has the lowest wages per unit output at present and has reached the minimum requisite level of political and economic development to support industrialization. At present, many such jobs appear to be flowing towards China, though some which require English are going to India and the Philippines.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
