    next. Just a couple of years ago, Forbes was extolling the future job potential for accountants. It seems to me that accounting can be outsourced as easily and with more cost savings than "customer service" thanks to the internet.

    Heck, I can remember when petroleum engineers still thought Iranian people couldn't engineer an oil well.

      The accounting profession has been outsourcing to India for 10 years at least.

      Now, lawyers are outsourcing much of their work, too.

      The white collar jobs have been going overseas for a long time - tech guys, programmers especially.  Now, there's a blend of bringing the foreign labor here under special visas.  Bill Gates went to Congress and blamed it on our education system not spewing forth enough geniuses.  

      Actually, now - we have Indian companies forming a US corporation and then bringing their own labor here.  :)

      All sorts of scenarios going on.
