The price of the labor means nothing if they're good. Maybe Hindustan Computers Limited isn't the best at writing airplane software. Some of the smartest people in the world are Indians making $9/hour. Some of the dumbest are USicans making $400/hour. If wealth was fairly distributed, there would be a recession.

Software written to buried sections within a million page spec tends to miss the details that come from casual use. The relevance of a piece in the big picture gets lost. What happens if the piece fails gets lost.

Boeing has a long feedback loop beginning with a guy in Seattle who just writes a spec, a guy in Mumbai who just implements it, & a pilot who just tests it years later. We've all applied to large aerospace companies. All they want are PhD's in exactly 1 function, who have spent their entire lives doing 1 function without ever seeing anything else.

Maybe if the guy in Seattle implemented it & had a way to test it instead of writing out a spec for someone else, the loop would be shorter.
