US falls behind Europe in IT league table


When I read articles like this… you immediately think SHOCK and HORROR , small countries are out performing the US. Statistics is like a bikini. What it reveals is of interest, but what you really want to see is not displayed.

The main reason why technology needs to be so efficient in the Scandinavian countries is because labor rates and employee taxes are so high, so companies are forced to push technology to the limits to compete in the market place.

The US, doesn’t have this issue, partly because immigration policy – legal and illegal and that outsourcing makes it just as efficient to use cheap overseas labor.

To my knowledge. There’s not too many Swedish speaking Indians .
