A man in America outsourced his job. Man outsources own job to China - The Irish Times - Thu, Jan 17, 2013 Described as an inoffensive person in his 40s, the kind of person "you wouldn't look twice at in an elevator", Bob, who was on a six figure salary as a software developer, outsourced his work to a company in China for a fifth of his salary allowing him to surf the web all day (he might even be a poster on P.ie...). The quality of the work was such that for many quarters he was consistently appraised as the best developer in the company.
What does this say about the future of the West's economy? Does it tell us anything we don't know already? Is it a portent of how much our living standards will fall in the future?
