Abstract:     
"I am a programmer with a Masters degree from a prominent college in the United States. I work 10 hour days and come in on weekends on a regular basis for my company. I pay my taxes and still manage to give back to my community. So why is my country doing nothing when my job is being threatened by international competition?"

"I am president of a company that took a hard look at cost numbers before embarking on outsourcing. Apart from the cost of labor, equipment, and incidentals, are there other aspects that we should have looked at?

This paper attempts to delineate the relevant pieces of information needed to address the above types of questions, as well as other outsourcing related questions, such as:

* What is the United States doing to encourage/discourage outsourcing? Are these actions legal under current international trading rules?

* Is the United States a net beneficiary or net loser when outsourcing occurs?

* How will the continued outsourcing of professional service activities impact different industries?

* How can intellectual property be equitably protected in an economy that involves growing levels of outsourcing?

* How can intellectual property be equitably valued and shared amongst concerned constituencies in an environment characterized by significant outsourcing?

* What is the 'ultimate scenario' for outsourcing, and how will this impact the jobs of those in the U.S. and abroad?
