RE: What America must do to compete with 'Chindia'

Hate to be the rain on ya'lls parade, but China and India are destined for nuclear exchange. Pakistan will pick up the pieces of both countries. That is, the parts of China that N. Korea and Mongolia don't colonize after the nuclear exchange between India and China.

You heard it here first.

Education, education, education (sprinkled with some motivation) for our children. Provide a world class education for our children, lead our country to re-embrace moral standing and family values that we used to be known for. America has lost its moral compass. Asians have this figured out - their culture breeds respect for education, elders, and hard work. Asian families stay together, respect each other - and they bring their elderly family members closer - they dont send them away to "retirement communities". Americans have long forgotten hard work.

Isolationism is just prolonging the enevitable failure. Instead of trying to control what other countries are doing - we need to improve ourselves. If other countries are taking the jobs from us - we need to create new jobs (via innovation that is bred by education).....

Federalize the construction of schools - freeing up local property taxes to pay for better teachers and cirriculum...

Blow up every damn TV in america - the F*)*(*in boob tube is sucking the brains out of america and it's youth. Our children are more focused on having a cell phone and winning a pepsi contest so they can shake their booty on MTV than they are with improving themselves. Far too many children are focused on a single big payoff - and know nothing of work ethic or the value of a dollar.

I am a technical person by trade. We are trying to hire 3 engineers at our firm. I have received 100+ resume's for the positions. There are literally only 11 candidates that will make the paperwork cut. Out of those 11, maybe 1 or 2 will be worthy. Most americans are dumb (yes I mean dumb, not ignorant) - until that changes we are set up for failure.

Other countries are beating us becuase they dont sit around and watch the damn TV all the time. We are marketing zombies. We should invest in education for our children - as only an educated employee pool will breed innovation (what america is known for).

TV is not the only problem. How bout video games? The violance in these games are horendous. People cutting off heads with swords and shit. No kid has business playing that crap.
And what about the internet? These stupid kids are ruining there brains on the internet all day long.

RE: What America must do to compete with 'Chindia'

every super power had their legends and foot prints they left behind even after their fall. for example, Nazi'sm left jew hating which can still be seen rampant, soviets left a system of communism, brits lefts a hostiry of monarchy.

smilarly, american have left pornography, MS-colonisation on the world computers and wars everywhere

GW is too busy waging wars than to pay attention on future and economy

Fuel economy!! whats that??

That tells me you are a good parent, Thrill (refreshing).... **not that you need me to affirm that**
Well, there's that, and the fact that I'm married to a woman who was once scouted by Pol Pot to bring new "enthusiasm" into his interrogation squad.

Legal outsourcing: India to get 79,000 jobs

India has huge potential in legal outsourcing, with the number of jobs in the field increasing to 79,000 by 2015, a study by an American research firm has said.
Though India had earned over $6.7 billion in US-based outsourcing services such as software and call centres till March 2005, the field of legal outsourcing was largely untapped, the study conducted by Forrester said.

The study estimated that jobs in the field, which was poised to increase dramatically from about $80 million annually to approximately $4 billion, would grow to 29,000 in 2008, 35,000 by 2010, and 79,000 by 2015.

At present the number of jobs in legal outsourcing in India stood less than 12,000, it said. Outsourcing would reduce costs for US customers as the rates for Indian legal workers were about 10 to 20 per cent of their American counterparts.

"Indian outsourcing offers the following economic advantages: A significant wage differential with Indian firms report paying legal researchers around $12,000 per year. There are also savings in perks, overhead, and working conditions," the study said adding time zone differences allowed for overnight and 24x7 operations.

So far, the legal services work consisted of paralegal, secretarial, and litigation support. However, according to the financial consulting firm, Fulcrum Financial Inquiry, Indian firms now offered more valuable services, including contract review and monitoring, document review for due diligence, patent drafting, simple filings and legal research.

Thanks, D.

RE: Legal outsourcing: India to get 79,000 jobs

China and India seem like the latest and greatest paper tiger to motivate/subordinate/keep status quo the american public. Looks like it is working. Both countries are lacking serious infrastructure, which will likely hold them back for many decades.
To Kirk and Bot... Surely you two weren't serious about the changes to our gov't? Both of you are so radical your drastic changes would bring more hardship than good if your will was implemented. Tell me your were tongue in cheek, or at least tongue in someone else's cheek! [:D]

RE: What America must do to compete with 'Chindia'

im of the videogame generation. nintendo came out when i was 4 and prior we had atari.

we also had the big arcade style asteroids game[:D] ohh those days. now i just have a gameboy ds, i dont like superriffic 3d megaconsole 75 dollar games my amblyopia doesnt allow me to play to completion.

final fantasy makes me sick these days, not figurativly. i have terrible depth perception and "3d" videogames just dont do it for me.

really, we need to focus on being producers again and less on being consumers. the two piggyback, though. you cannot entirely be a producer. like when i am working on a piece and need to purchase materials-- i am a consumer, ultimately, however, i am a producer.

are there any statistical forecasts of wal*mart's finances if we buckle down on the importation of dangerously underengineered, shoddily built procucts? it seems like americans done care about how dangerous a product is, so long as it is cheap.

i wonder how many adults have to be injured by flipping a wal mart purchased, light aluminum pan full of hamburgers on themselves when the cheap handle falls off to realize that cheaper isnt better. buy freaking copper pots, thick, heavy copper pots. theyll last forever. your children will even cook in them!

it seems like people only care if it DIRECTLY effects them, they dont even care that their childrens toys are safe or age appropriate.

ever look at the recall board? its generally only toys and car seats. shows you how much we value future generations over the dollar we saved.

Hmmmmmm.... so to compete with Chindia we should expand Ebay? WTF?? [xx(]
The Chindians made their money by doing 100 transactions at 0.5% instead of the western model where you try to get as much as you can in the least number of cycles.

My friend told me that he would rather make 1% per day and have a 40% return on his money each month than try to force large margins like 15% and make maybe 20% a month.

The economics of supply and demand with the supposing need to recover R&D costs is a false model because it does not distribute benefits and concepts fast enough for the best price.

Instead of seeking the best price the western economies try to maximise their returns using ideal models.

Modz ... enjoy the difference. www.benzmodz.com

The Chindians make their money, because their labor pool is cheap. They are not making the margins - they are a cheap labor pool...

US companies are not moving jobs overseas in order to sell volume - they are moving jobs because the chindian labor pools (right now) do not demand high pay... it's a cost cutting strategy.

Perhaps I just dont understand Aussie... :P.
