  3. I would like to say that this video is quite accurate from an Indian perspective as well. The final 1/3rd of the video is even better than the rest of the piece, which is itself pretty good. Must watch for all those who want to understand what the heck a “global economy” means and to understand that while outsourcing benefits everyone; we need to expand the sphere of globalization so that it benefits more people (and not just 3 million out of 1.1 billion people). It underscores the need for basic amenities like water, sanitation, nutrition and education for most of the developing/”3rd world” countries.

  6. I agree. The video brings Banaglore alive to people that have never visited India. I use it in my classes and executive education sessions to discuss the broader shifts underway: it’s not just about insourcing or outsouring. It’s not about offshoring or onshoring. It’s about the shifting geography of work because of the technology. It creates second-order effects that Tom Friedman shows in the video.
