It's not often I find a quote this classic:
"Anybody who thinks the federal government is going to do anything to reverse the outsourcing trend is smoking dope," said Mahoney."
It's from this article, about how outsourcing is a cross-industry architecture shift, rather than a short-term management fad.
I find that conclusion dubious, to say the least. Jobs will flow to where labor is the least costly - not simply the cheapest. The full costs of outsourcing have yet to be exposed - when they are, they're going to end up being a lot bigger than most people think today, because they're strategic costs, which are hard to attach to cells in Excel which are broken down per worker.
