Forbes on Where to Offshore


Forbes has a special feature, "Where to Outsource Now," which covers the same worn ground as other recent articles on the topic. A brief pop-up slideshow provides details about total exports, IT expertise, average annual salaries for programmers and BPO workers, and a factoid, such as this for The Phillipines: To encourage tech investments, the country gives tax breaks and promises smooth dealings with government.

The countries you'd expect make an appearance:

  • India
  • Canada
  • Ireland
  • The Phillippines
  • Russia
  • China
  • Mexico
  • Czech Republic
  • Poland and Hungary

I'd have expected more from the magazine, but perhaps they figure the executives they're addressing have a short attention span and don't really want to get mired in the messy details. Pity.
