Damn that cheap European labor force!!
The Financial Times' Francesco Guerrera and Alan Beattie report on a new trend in offshoring:
Multinational companies are favouring Europe over Asia when expanding abroad – a sign that they want to be close to customers and suppliers rather than simply tap into cheap labour and plants, according to a new study of outward investment.posted by Dan on 09.18.06 at 09:01 AM
There is a cheaper, higher quality option - Israel. With American Jewish immigration to Israel (between 1000-2000 people a year) it is possible to get American work ethic and American quality at an Israeli salary. of course the potential members of that core of the workforce is very very small but an excellent value!posted by: amechad on 09.18.06 at 09:01 AM [permalink]

A strategic government can overcome a cheap labor force. Now how do we get one?
Someday soon we too will be able to provide the world with cheap labor.posted by: Babar on 09.18.06 at 09:01 AM [permalink]
