ACC430 Unit 4 Discussion
Unit 4 DB: Outsourcing (ACC430 Accounting Information Systems)
Let's close the textbooks for this one. A lot of people are talking about “Outsourcing”. There is a trend to send accounting, architecture, and computer related jobs overseas to India and other countries because the labor is so much cheaper. It’s become such a hot topic that it became a major issue in political campaigns.
What’s you opinion on this topic? Is this just good competition or unfair competition? Do you think there is a risk sending high tech jobs overseas, regarding possibly sensitive data? Corporations Board of Directors are responsible for the well-being of the company and to maximize profits. Aren’t they just doing their job? What can be done to stop this or should we? Is it an overreaction?
