Summary note:
"The rapid growth of offshore outsourcing in manufacturing and IT-based services is unleashing dramatic changes around the world. The book brings together leading scholars and practitioners to analyze the implications of this huge transformation. For some observers, offshore outsourcing promises more rapid economic growth for both developed and developing countries. For others, it unravels the social contract in today's rich countries, as labor and governments lose bargaining power vis-a-vis globally mobile capital. For yet others, it offers some developing countries the opportunity to leapfrog, while pushing others even further to the sidelines."--BOOK JACKET.
