A Flat World and Outsourcing

A Flat World

A flat world is the world becoming globally interconnected, allowing businesses to compete equally. Outsourcing is when a company has certain jobs done outside in the company. Businesses often do this when they do not have the specific skills or knowledge for a specific job. They many do outsourcing to save money.

How Does this Effect Future Jobs?

  • U.S. loses jobs for Americans
The job opportunities lost deprives Americans of making money. So although companies can produce products cheaper with outsourcing, some Americans will not have the money to buy these products.
  • Job loss leads to people living off government assistance because it is difficult for them to find another job
