How Fortune 500 Companies Can Save $58 Billion a Year -- Just Send 1.5 Million More Jobs Overseas

Eric Chabrow of Information Week reports on a Hackett Group research study that as much as $58 billion a year can be saved, by America’s fortune 500 companies, by sending back-of-the-house and administration functions overseas.

I haven't seen any studies on just what the loss of 1.5 million white collar jobs would do to our economy and the effects that a loss of that magnitude might have on their clients. Since The Hackett Group bills itself as "global strategic advisory firm" a study like this should be viewed self-serving.
