Giant Sucking Sound: Perot Systems Outsources to Mexico – Management News by InformationWeek
When billionaire H. Ross Perot ran for president in 1992, he warned that the torrent of American jobs headed south of the border as a result of the North American Free Trade Agreement would create “a giant sucking sound.” On Friday, the outsourcing company founded by Perot, where he serves as chairman emeritus, disclosed that it’s opening a new service center in Mexico.

Outsourcing critics will be quick to point out the irony in Perot outsourcing jobs to Mexico, while advocates of so-called global sourcing would surely argue that U.S. business investment in Mexico will help to relieve the strain of illegal cross-border immigration as more Mexicans are able to find work at home.
