CIA Warns of Asian Tech Domination - CIA Warns of Asian Tech Domination
Mon, April 19 2004 | 10:23PM | PermaLink Feedback?
I suppose the CIA hasn't *ever* looked at the stickers on the backs of all the PDA's, cellphones, audio players, computer monitors, PC's, printers, faxes, DVD players, LCD projectors and whatnot that dot its Langley offices. Just about everything electronic is made in Taiwan, China, Japan, or Korea. It should come as no surprise that China and India are forecast to direct the development of technological standards by 2020, and yet, the CIA seems surprised according to this VNUnet article.

"China and India will increasingly set the standards for the global technology industry, according to a report from the CIA. In its predictions for the world in 2020 the CIA's National Intelligence Council warned that these two global players will increasingly dominate the focus of the world economy. The agency expects that the technologically literate populations of China and India will spread around the world, filling jobs currently performed by workers in Western countries." The CIA's National Intelligence Council report can be seen here.

So tell us, has your job already been outsourced to another continent?

We Asked. You Told Us.

Jeff let's it fly on the subject of tech job outsourcing...
"I'm a designer working for a School Manufacturer/Contractor in Southern California. My job has always been somewhat secure, but this company has this [person] that's always trying to convince the company to outsource our design and illustration work to his friends in India, and it's truley starting to [tick] me off... I have no problem outsourcing our EXTRA work to India, China, etc. but this guy is trying to eliminate my department entirely. He's not even responsible for the company budget, or the budget for any department of the company. Don't these people (the ones trying to outsource to other countries) realize that keeping me and people like me employed aids in the stimulation of the economy?"

Would anyone responsible for outsourcing decisions care to counter? Drop us a line.
