Politics Aside, Congress Won’t Slow Offshore Outsourcing Growth

Partner David Rutchik discusses the outsourcing industry’s ongoing resilience, despite congressional actions aimed at restricting outsourcing initiatives. Sample excerpt: "Seizing on the combination of political expediency, a certain degree of xenophobia, and a U.S. unemployment figure that remains stubbornly near 10 percent, Congress has initiated both rhetoric and legislative initiatives aimed at impeding the offshore outsourcing industry. Despite these efforts, however, the offshore outsourcing industry continues to prosper as U.S. companies avail themselves of a critical tool in their arsenal to remain globally competitive."
