Blue Cities Face Higher Risk of Offshoring

Democrats take note: offshoring will impact your economies more than the national average.

According to this report, 10% of all jobs in the US face the risk of offshoring. However, 11%-16% of all jobs in the metropolitan areas of Alanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and San Jose face the risk of offshoring.

Berkeley researchers, Bardhan and Kroll, say that the widely quoted Forrester Research (an independent technology research company) report issued in 2002 that 3.3 million jobs would be lost to outsourcing by 2015 already seems conservative.

An old article (2003) but has great pictures. The entire report is located at the end. It's easy to read, especially if you are a wonk.
