The End of Employees – WSJ

Never before have American companies tried so hard to employ fewer people. From Google to Wal-Mart, the outsourcing boom is cutting costs for firms and job security for millions of workers.

I told my children when they were leaving education that they would be well advised to look for customers not bosses.

It’s been exactly seven years since I read Charles Handy’s The Age of Unreason.  And if you are familiar with Handy’s work the WSJ’s article should not come as a surprise.  The surprise is how long it has taken for companies to figure out how to outsource effectively.

I hope you read books.
