Bogomtale fra forlaget.

Leading experts analyze the impact of the rapid growth of offshore outsourcing in manufacturing and IT. For some it promises more rapid economic growth and for some developing countries it is an opportunity to leapfrog, while others are sidelined but it also means labour and governments may lose bargaining power vis-à-vis globally mobile capital.
