I have been reading the book “The World is Flat” by Thomas Friedman and it does bring some interesting topics to the fore. This gives a very good perception of the world around us as is thought by the average American and what he thinks of the way outsourcing and off-shoring work. He has in this book brought out some interesting concepts and observations about India and the outsourcing concept. He has brought out a very good point in this. Companies have an ulterior motive by coming to any country. They wish to increase the spending power of the people there so that more money is circulated and the company in turn earns more a people will spend more. This concept is gaining ground in the major Indian cities and thus, fulfilling the prophecies set down by the Organizations which moved in here; hence, making them profitable.
