Go East, Young Man!

(NYC) Editor of the Daily Beast, Tina Brown, is on record as advising young journalists to "go to work in India" because opportunities in the U.S. are at a "transitional moment."

Former NBC anchorman Tom Brokaw also advised young journalists to leave home. "I'd be looking to see what the chances are of getting a job in the Middle East, for example. Or in India."

So, according to two media notables, if you want a job, "Go East!" (to India or the Middle East). Apologies to the ghost of Horace Greeley.

It could be argued that people leaving the U.S. to find jobs is 'outsourcing by default,' a bit different from the conventional understanding of outsourcing as jobs taken away from American workers and replaced by workers in another country. We aren't losing jobs to another country, we're losing workers. (more....)
