Joi Ito reports that Republicans creating jobs in India:
Although the Republican National Committee denies it, The Business Standard in India reports that the Republicans are outsourcing campaign fund-raising to India. The new law in the US allows people to opt out of telemarketing from everyone except political parties and non-profits.
I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, American jobs are being exported. On the other hand, they’re telemarketing jobs….
On a third hand, it doesn’t really make a difference to people who are interrupted during dinner whether the caller is here in the U.S., or in a call center in Hyderabad.
