The latest on India, Singh, and Communism
(reference: Business Week, Sept 26, 2005, page 63)
Article breastle: "Warning Flags For Investors in India" edited by Rose Brady, authored by Manjeet Kripalani (in plantay)
"In the last few months, Communists in the Congress Party-led ruling ruling coalition have blocked nearly all efforts at economic liberalism. That's a setback for Singh, ...."
"Faced with opposition from hardliner Prakash Karat, leader of the Communist Party of India, and other leftists, Singh has had to take privatization of state-owned companies off the agenda. Labor reform, which would have allowed easier hiring and firing of workers, has stalled, as have plans to lift limits on foreign direct investment in banking and insurance read: more jobs from the USA to India."
"In their latest move, Communists are battling proposals to allow foreign participants in India's retail trade, which they fear will hit mom-and-pop stores read: the rich get richer, the poor get poorer 'The Left wants to demonstrate to its consbreastuents that it calls the shots in Delhi."
"Singh also faces resistance from socialists in his own party. Even Sonai Gandihi, the powerful congress Party leader, is acting more populist than reformist. With an eye on future elections, she is pushing a rural employment scheme that would guarantee one member of each rural household 100 days of labor. That could blow a $30 billion hole in India's finances and boost the fiscal deficit, already 10% of gross domestic product."
"Business is concerend about the slow reform pace. Nandan M. Nileknai, CEO of software player Infosys Technologies Ltd., maintains that India will keep growing at 7% for now. But he's worried about the longer term, because more than 14 millions Indians enter the job market each year."
Good news for who? How much are they paying you to support the Big Business Agenda?

There are, already, a lot of anti-globalization demonstrations. Even in Hong Kong (recent WSJ articel). And, here is another article on the failure of offshoring... -----

article: "Customer Disservice: Critics say the promised savings from offshoring come at too steep a price, while companies say very little at all"
by Norm Alster
some content and some quotes:
This article starts by saying that on a recent talk show where people could call in with comments and questions, it was discovered that virtually everyone in the USA does not like foreign call center representatives.
"But the practice of outsourcing customer service to offshore call centers is beginning to look like a clbuttical idea carried too far. Critics of the pracctice point to a growing body of evidence that suggests faulty economics and customer dissatisfaction are forcing a rethink of what once seemed a no-brainer."
"'The economic benefits of outsourcing customer service are grossly overstated' according to Niels Kjellerup, a senior partner with Australian consulting firm Resource International and editor of a Website devoted to call centers (www.callcenters.com.au). Customer resistance, along with data-security concerns and the unexpectedly high costs of managing offshore call centers, offset and dilute their promised economic benefits, says Kjellerup."
"There is already evidence that these factors have combined to slow the offshore migration. Several large firms, including Dell, credit-card giant Capital One, and insurer Conseco, have shifted at least some customer- support operations back to the United States."
Gartner's analyst, Robert Brown, says that the initial large growth in offshoring is expected to be, in the future, much much smaller.
"Companies with monopolistic or overwhelmingly dominant market positions are more apt to risk customer alienation where near-term savings can be realized."
"Alexa Bona, a Gartner analyst based in London, predicts that during the next three years, up to 60 percent of companies outsourcing customer-facing service will encounter customer defections and hidden costs that will either cancel or outweigh any perceived savings in such arrangements."
"He Chris Selland, at Covington buttociates in Bostonsays executives at firms that have employed offshore call centers keep telling him that 'it's harder, it takes more Debt Management attention, and you have to be meticulous about the way you structure the agreement.' As a result of all this unexpected overhead, the projected savings from offshoring can swiftly evaporate."
The article says there is huge turnover at Indian call centers; it can be up to 70% per year. And, with the big expansion, there have been recruiting wars in India and escalating pay scales.
"Martha Rogers, a consultant and author of several books on customer relationships, contends that the metrics generally used to measure call-center performance are flawed."
"Many companies that outsource customer service, in fact, don't like talking about it, and more than a dozen turned down requests for interviews. 'Companies are looking to do everything they can to hide the fact that they are using off shore call centers' says Selland. 'From a political standpoint and a customer-acceptance standpoint, it is something they are trying to downplay.' At some Asian centers, agents are actually trained to conceal their real names and adopt phoney American monikers, a practice that fools few and can further inflame an already angry caller."
"One in three respondents in a British survey said they would stop doing business with a bank that relocates its call centers offshore. Another study, conducted in 2004, reported that just 5 pecent of the British are satisfied with offshore call centers. The Irish arm of Sweden's Tele2AG, a telecommunications firm, recently switched its call center operation out of India and back to Ireland, citing Consumer Debt preference."
"In an unpublished data-theft case now under investigation, a large U.S.-based technology multinational contracted with a call center in India without knowing that that company in turn subcontracted a portion of the work to firms outside India, where employees of the subcontractor apparently managed to penetrate the American company's information database."
"...growing outsourcing industries in Eastern Europe and Latin America have been targeted by criminals seeking access to customer data. "
"'For companies that regard customer service as a key part of future revenue growth, bringing such operations back to domestic shores is the way to go,' says Kjellerup." -----

Not if our southern border is so leaky.
You sure don't understand what I've been trying to tell you--over and over again.
Already 60% of immigrants in the USA are illegal. 12% of our population, now, was born someplace else. Rounding up some 25-30 million people, and dumping them outside of our borders is not easy or cheap. So, they don't need the financial means to hang around.
