Check through the various business related sources (books, magazines) that convinced a generation of management that it was cheaper to buy then to build and then, when that didn't work out so well, how they fall-back plan was to outsource overseas because the labor is cheap.

Based upon true events, both plans were embraced by innocent and gullible captains of industry - the articles and books fall under the category of "Fairy Tales" but the actual events, as they unfolded, into many a nightmare.
