Outsourcing for the little guy


Shades of Thomas Friedman! More NYT goodness, with an article about how one and two person companies are outsourcing the grunt work to overseas factories, programmers and other services.

I’m not sure if this is a great example of globalization working, or of people taking advantage of crappy labour conditions that used to only work in favor of major corporations. Either way, it’s an interesting read.
