Consumer Outsourcing? Worker Outsourcing?

Marginal Revolution has an interesting post on a different kind of outsourcing. What happens when consumers of medical services go abroad to make their purchases? What about medical workers attracted to leave the United States by better working conditions and arrangements abroad?

I dunno. I imagine construction workers and cafeteria workers in places like India get jobs. And wages in the U.S. would eventually have to drop.

Bad for us, but wouldn't it be a terrible injustice to try and stop it? To force sick Americans to either pay the much higher prices they face in the U.S. or die--and at the same time, refuse poor third-world workers this opportunity?
