Shifting jobs to lower-wage countries--a form of what is known as offshore outsourcing--is an increasingly popular practice among U.S. businesses seeking to cut operating costs. Outsourcing has also become political shorthand for presidential candidates to describe what is perceived as unfair international trade and its costs for U.S. workers. The issue has become highly emotional because of outsourcing's two dramatically different effects: it leads to layoffs and dislocations for thousands of U.S. workers, even as most economists say it will ultimately strengthen the U.S. economy. With the U.S. economy still in recovery ...

The Next Deal: Deflation and Other Interesting Econ
by Chris Farrell). I have always enjoyed economics and this book is about the most compelling econ book I have ever read. The main premise of the book is that we are moving into a deflationary period thanks to the following factors: 1. Federal Reserve Policy 2. Overproduction (Mostly from China) 3. Productivity advances in the service sector 4. Outsourcing He looks at previous deflationary periods such as the deflation of the 1870s-90s, the Great Depression and Japan's deflation of the 90's. Of course, if you look around you will say that he is nuts. Fuel prices, education, health care and raw materials are all higher. ... market research, surveys and trends

Women sew garments for the needy as part of a stimulus project sponsored by the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression. (Photo: Works Progress Administration)     We're all struggling with how to think - and what to do - in the face of the "great recession." An initial progressive response was to advocate better regulation; then Keynesian economic stimulus; now nationalization; perhaps in the future some kind of socialism.     One theme that has reverberated through periods of "hard times" in the past is the idea of "production for ... market research, surveys and trends

WHITE-COLLAR OUTSOURCING : Outsourcing American Jobs
President Bush reported to Congress that the movement of American factory jobs and white collar work to other countries is part of a positive transformation that will enrich the U.S. economy over time, even if it causes short-term pain and dislocation. President Bush’s chief economic advisor, N. Gregory Mankiw testified before Congress and supported the President’s position that shifting jobs overseas is a good for America. He said, “Outsourcing is just a new way of doing international trade. More things are tradable than were tradable in the past. And that’s a good thing.” The International ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Exporting Blame: With All the Anxiety Over Outsourcing, Where ...
As unemployment remains high and once-stable jobs mysteriously vanish, Americans are becoming desperate for answers: How are workers supposed to deal with unprecedented economic insecurity, where are these jobs going, and who is to blame? Interest groups and politicians have decried outsourcing as the American worker�s nemesis, fueling public anxiety about the dangers of globalization and a new protectionist mindset that reacts against the free trade doctrine of the corporate America. Kerry, backed by the AFL-CIO, has blamed Bush for the loss of jobs to cheap overseas labor markets.

The impact of outsourcing on white collar jobs
Outsourcing is becoming more commonplace these days particularly with respect to larger corporate companies.  Outsourcing usually follows a cost analysis of outgoing spending and will be implemented in line with the company's budget. A typical example in the workplace of outsourcing would be that of a call center. A lot of companies today will opt to outsource this section of their business and will usually opt for the cheaper option available. The outsourcing of work to external sources will usually cost considerably less than the internal going rate per internal employee. IT and telecoms, for example, may choose to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What are some of the most innovative outsourcing solutions that ...
The most innovative solution I have ever seen mid tier firms apply is one of co-sourcing. Where they don't have the scale to deliver the right economics, these firms have partnered with other mid to large tier solution providers to work together in delivering innovative solutions with the understanding the capital investment will be made by the solution provider to get the solution up and going, they will also commit to a minimum years of service and will trade their IP in developing the solution. This gives both parties a win - the outsourcing company gets the reference and critical industry IP to start off an industry ...
