This paper analyzes and delves into how American outsourcing affects India's government. The paper explains that the Indian government has yet to achieve the level of information technology that is represented by developed countries such as Japan and United States. The paper also notes that the Indian government understands the potential that information technology presents in terms of economic growth, and has implemented various policies in support of high technology development, particularly with regard to the use of telecommunication and computers. The paper opines that regardless of the negative impact that American outsourcing presents to India, it is a worthwhile venture as the positives outweigh the negatives. The paper concludes that American outsourcing to India should therefore be encouraged by the government.

From the Paper:

"There are a number of moral and ethical issues that have arisen from outsourcing of American companies to India. To begin with, there is the issue of exploitation of natural resources in India which in return does not bring as much benefits as it does to the American companies. This eventually depletes India's resources which are irreplaceable. Another issue is that of security of data as in the recent past there has been cases of call center scams that originate from India making American companies more apprehensive about using their services. There also have been fraud irregularities especially with the outsourcing of the tax returns process where vital financial information is exchanged. Another ethical issue concerns the cost benefit analysis of outsourcing to India with regard to the fact that manpower is heavily invested in provision of these services but it is at the service of American companies. Finally, there is the issue of cultural differences that exist between America and India with respect to lifestyle, cultural and religious values. There has been slow infiltration of the American cultural values into India as witnessed by the number of fast food vendors that are cropping up in India."
