Outsourcing and comedians

Comedians are having a heyday with outsourcing. Dubai Port World is the butt of jokes from both  Bill Maher and Jay Leno. Bill Maher described President Bush’s recent South Asia trip as an effort to avoid nuclear conflict in the region that could damage India as US jobs – (being done from India)- would be jeopardized!

Tonight Jon Stewart will undoubtedly have some jokes on this topic in the Oscar’s. I feel that as comedians take over a topic organizations and people become more ready to deal with a question. In this case academics like me will find more organizations now willing to talk about outsourcing and how to do it better and educational institutions trying to really address how better to train the American workforce for the 21st century. All this will happen with a smile 🙂 – I guess…
