BPO Elite Blog Post #7 – Jingoism, xenophobia and the local news.


Outsourcing can be such a political hot potato and like any business practice has many pros and cons. However, after reading this post by Martin, I shared it and challenged all of my connections on LinkedIn to really question what they know about outsourcing and what they just hear on the news. I’ve found that quite often it’s just sensationalist and jingoistic journalism that can border on flat out xenophobia.

Often it’s an uphill battle to defend the merits of outsourcing in the public eye, so I find encouragement when reading opinions like these. I too will continue to make our case based on my deep convictions about the importance of outsourcing to both the global and individual national economies.
