Services Offshoring Working Group Final Report

Although the scale of services offshoring has likely been modest so far, it will inevitably grow and stimulate changes in the United States economy — both positive and negative — through the relocation of work and the internationalization of innovative activities. Effective policy responses to these changes require a clear, detailed, and timely view of services offshoring and related economic changes based on solid economic data. Good economic data also provide appropriate market signals for companies, workers, students, and educational institutions.
