Forget India outsource to Arkansas

CNBC: One woman believes that companies can send jobs to rural areas and save just as much as they could sending them to places like India. I thought something like this made sense because of lower over all cost of living etc. However, I think there could be multiple outsourcing strategies.

In Romania is CHEAPER than india to hire a programmer.
If u dont beleive it research it its true.
To some extent the work is following where workers are.
There’s a cost of living arguement which is true also. Cost of a decent house is way too high in eastcoast and california.
so pure sw types may find it economical to move to arkansas and buy a mansion and commute once a month to once a week to sanjose or boston.
But the personal productivity of such individual in US must be VERY HIGH for managers to accomodate them.
For call center type work rural us worker or a retiree in florida is a safer bet than india/china/romania etc
