UM: Davidson Institute

Freep columnist Tom Walsh interviews Bob Kennedy, head of UM’s William Davidson Institute, which focuses on international initiatives. Walsh reports that Kennedy’s new book, “The Services Shift: Seizing the Ultimate Offshore Opportunity,” looks at the offshoring of information technology and other services to India and elsewhere. Says Kennedy: ”It’s an emotional topic, and the economic meltdown only heightens that aspect. People tend to think of it from two extremes – it’s the end of the world, or it’s the greatest thing ever.” [Source]
