Submitted by: Alitum Press
Portland, OR (OPENPRESS) June 14, 2012 -- Alitum Press announced today the release of its first book, The Moral Case on Outsourcing: How Good, Bad, or Ugly is it for America and the World?
The Moral Case on Outsourcing provides a thought-provoking and comprehensive look at the social, political and moral implications of one of today's most controversial business practices - Outsourcing. Along the way, it directly confronts the conventional wisdom on both sides of the debate. With a wide-ranging list of both costs and benefits, The Moral Case on Outsourcing also introduces a set of moral frameworks to gauge just how good or bad outsourcing really is for America and the world. These tools allow readers to decide the moral case on outsourcing for themselves.
"Many people are worried about outsourcing, its impact on the economy and the future of jobs in America," said author, Scott Phillips. "This book is for them. It seeks to provide a fair and balanced perspective on the political, economic, social and moral impacts of outsourcing on both sides of the ledger. It gives people a chance to decide for themselves based on the facts rather than hyperbole, emotions or the politics of the day."
Regardless of how each individual weighs the case for or against outsourcing, everyone will agree that it is critical to chart a course to recovery and prosperity for all Americans. The Moral Case on Outsourcing concludes with a set of policies - ranging from how to improve access to higher education to the case for a stronger safety net for workers who lose a job - designed to help all Americans prosper in a world increasingly characterized by outsourcing, globalization and an ever increasing rate of technological change.
The Moral Case on Outsourcing is available in hardcover from online retailers in the U.S. and U.K. It may be ordered through most retail bookstores. Digital versions for ebook readers will be available in early July, 2012.
