Southern Asia: Is Outsourcing Worth It?

I apologize in advance to all of my Southern Asian readers but I think it is time I weighed in on this controversial topic. Thanks to the fine folks at The Daily Show, companies can now run a simple-cost benefit analysis to see if it makes sense to send their blue-collar jobs overseas to Southern Asia.

1) Would you rather pay your employees in
A. Money
B. Fruit rind

2) Would you prefer your employees to have
A. Self-esteem and adaptable skills
B. Calluses and deformed knuckles

3) Would you rather employ
A. One 60-year-old
B. Ten 6-year-olds

If you answered (A) to any on these questions, congratulations! You’ve just been fired by the guy who answered (B).
