However, for the amount of money that is saved by offshoring, a major company 
can afford to fly the project manager overseas. This is barring the fact that 
detailed emails, IRC, and other forms of communication are often sufficient.

If a company *knows* what they want, they can simply spend the time writing 
out a very detailed spec upfront. A good practice when working with US or 
offshore coders.
