Johnny Nash once sang, ' I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.' The election is now gone, but will Americans be able to see more clearly regarding offshore outsourcing in 2005? As Daniel Drezner argues in the May/June 2004 issue of Foreign Affairs, 'According to the election-year bluster of politicians and pundits, the outsourcing of American jobs to other countries has become a problem of epic proportion. Fortunately, this alarmism is misguided. Outsourcing actually brings far more benefits than costs, both now and in the long run. If its critics succeed in provoking a new wave of American protectionism, the consequences will be disastrous -- for the U.S. economy and for the American workers they claim to defend.' A key outcome to this session will be that you will have the tools to answer this question: 'To what extent does economic interdependence (such as outsourcing) alter the patterns of world politics?'
