This is my point EXACTLY, ABEL. Thank you MrBrau1. Most companies could care less about the "national economy." The most important thing is "Shareholder return." And as long as we here in America focus on "Shareholders" rather than people...we will continue see jobs outsourced.

If you are concerned about your job going away due to outsourcing...create a back up plan...NOW! Get additional training. Hey, knowing that we our contry is focused first and foremost on the "shareholder," I am sure you can fine a good job with a financial company (I would say "answering phones...but I think quite few of these companies have outsourced jobs to India too).


Its all part of the reality of the wonderful world we live in. I will never take another job as a "career choice." I will take jobs as "something that will build skills and prepare me for the next job." Our generation will not have careers.

I agree

I don't really think that this will have enormous economical consequences

Oh, it will. Imagine all those people in India getting a higher income. They want to consume, also want to have those Philips TV's, Ford cars, Apple iPods, etc. There is a huge market emerging for our goods.

C ya!

Hello,

I wanted to post the link to this article for a while, but until now I didn't have the time. It's from the February 2004 issue of Wired magazine. It describes the outsourcing of IT jobs from both sides, the US and the Indian. I thought it was quite a good read. Here's the URL:
http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/12.02/india.html

The article is long, but a very good read. It also points to some developments for the future, what kind of jobs will remain in the Western world (those that require creativity).

C ya!

Marty
