Tom Peters comes out with a very interesting manifesto on Off-Shroring. "Tom Peters, uber business guru, lays down 20 hard truths about outsourcing. Whether you like it or not, out-sourcing is here to stay. Ignore Tom's words at your peril. "
"Big Companies are off-shoring / automating almost exclusivel in puruit of eficeny and shareholder value enhancement. This is not new or news".
Would needs to be noted is that Big Companies are also rigoursly selling out directly to Indian and Chinese Companies. Today Tyco was sold to Tata in India , as indicated by Tyco International statement.
A spokesman at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said in August that some $30 billion in U.S.-owned international telecom infrastructure had been sold for about $4 billion.
I wonder if all the backbone network G series and dark fiber optics lines, will be owned, controlled and managed by the Indian and Chinese. Just imagine !!! All Phones, Cable, Internet Access etc.
Your communication and existence , will be in the hands of the those off-shored companies !!! Deal with it.
