One of the hottest, most controversial topics in the news is the outsourcing of American jobs to other countries. Outsourced jobs are extending well beyond the manufacturing sector to include white-collar professionals, particularly in information technology, financial services, and customer service. In his new book Outsourcing America, Ron Hira reveals just how much outsourcing is taking place, what its impact is and will be, and what can be done about the loss of jobs. Ron Hira, Ph.D., PE, is a recognized expert on outsourcing, and the only person to testify twice before Congress on its implications. He has appeared on national television and radio, and has been widely quoted in the New York Times, Time, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Times of London and other publications.
