News.com ran a 4-part series on offshoring this week:
U.S. needs reforms, not rhetoric: Government officials, business leaders and academics agree that the future of America’s technology complex depends on education, professional training and research investment. Companies guarding ‘secret sauce’: Although many U.S. technology businesses are contracting or considering some form of foreign outsourcing, they are adamant about keeping intellectual property at home–for now. How India is handling backlash: In stark contrast to the heated reaction among many U.S. workers, the country that is most associated with offshoring is both subdued and puzzled by the opposition that has arisen. The next technology battlefields: Rather than trying to reverse the outsourcing wave, the best way for America to fend off foreign competition is to invent technologies that will drive a new industrial cycle.
