As a seasoned contractor I got used to a market paying good rates for my skills and now I believe I am able to deliver faster for more clients remotely. It stands to reason that the market for remote teams is a better one than a market for a remote individual. There is nothing to stop software development being more effective and efficient online than it is to house employees. Avoiding massive costs to both sides of the negotiation. Costs can be productively invested.
The issue has been, in the past, trust and credibility. I believe strongly that I have a commercial answer to the problems posed by managing a remote team. By building small teams of developers, linking them into teams and managing projects real value can be delivered. The Open Source community has done this for years. It has driven knowledge progress.
