Summary

In the debate over outsourcing, one fact is clear: Most companies still believe they can save a tremendous amount of money by shipping jobs overseas. But how much is too much? Revised and expanded, this new edition of Outsourcing America exposes the hidden ways this alarming trend affects us all, revealing just how much outsourcing is taking place, what its impact has been and will continue to be, and what can be done about the loss of jobs.

More than an expose, Outsourcing America shows how offshoring is part of the historical economic shifts toward globalism and free trade, and demonstrates its impact on individual lives and communities. In addition, the book now features a new chapter on immigration policies and outsourcing, and advice on how individuals can avoid becoming victims of outsourcing. The authors discuss policies that countries like India and China use to attract U.S. industries, and they offer frank recommendations that business and political leaders must consider in order to confront this ongoing crisis.
