Another Crystal Ball

Posted in Always On
A real estate veteran looks at demographics and comes up with a new view.

Here's what Francine Hardaway of Stealthmode Partners had to say (an extract from article) on global outsourcing, entrepreneurship and small businesses but first, Leann Lachman did the numbers:

• And the office market, because the global outsourcing of skilled service jobs continues. By 2010, 1.7 million office jobs will go overseas, doubling by 2015 to 3.4 million.

• Lachman believes we will replace those jobs with something, but she's not sure what. I (Francine), of course, believe it will be small business and entrepreneurship, lean and mean, with strategic partnerships and strategic outsourcing (but no need for the kind of big office space of the past).
