Our Tax Dollars at Work

Those of us who thought the economic stimulus was ridiculously small--such as the outgoing chair of the President's Council of Economic Advisers--should have been pleased at the news that the Obama Administration is being millions to help create IT jobs. The catch is, they'll be created in Asia.

From Information Week:

Despite President Obama's pledge to retain more hi-tech jobs in the U.S., a federal agency run by a hand-picked Obama appointee has launched a $36 million program to train workers, including 3,000 specialists in IT and related functions, in South Asia.

Also, in what I suppose is one of those trademark shrewd moves to head off critics who would say that Obama is showing favoritism to South Asia due to his fond memories of his Indonesian childhood, he's also using our tax dollars for a similar initiative in Armenia.
