Presentation of the topic

When writing your essay, it is of utmost importance to begin by defining the concept of “insourcing” of jobs to America. “Insourcing” means bringing back jobs from other countries and developing production in the United States. You may compare it with the opposing concept of “outsourcing”, which means the decision of American companies of opening factories and, implicitly, the job market, in other countries. In the last few years, America has dealt with the phenomenon of “insourcing”, an event worth analyzing.

In these study notes, we will focus on the reasons why “insourcing” has become an important phenomenon in the United States,  discuss the concept of “American pride”, and help you reflect on future prospects for the American manufacturing process.
