Offshoring Individual Work

Seems that you can make it happen.  Read this post regarding the ability to offshore competitive site analysis for $15-$20 an hour.  The author refers to this as sub-shoring.

It would certainly be interesting to see a micro list of offshoring jobs that are billed by the hour.  Need to input a bunch of disparate data into a single, beautifully formatted spreadsheet?  Would you rather have your $100,000 per year Executive do that work or have a $15 per hour person in India do it?  That's going to become an easier and easier question to answer as more and more white collar tasks are available by the hour off shore.

Ross, why can't more sites be as good as yours!!! You see I am changing my life at the moment and I have decided to start a work from home directory site. I am trying to get inspiration so I can become easier to talk to. You site has given me some ideas. I talk to a wide range of people and I need to relate to everyone I come across so thanks for your posts! The title 'Offshoring Individual Work' caught my eye so I thought I'd post on this one. Cheers.
