The whole offshoring thing:

Yes, it empowers giant megacorporations to fire hundreds of drones.

But how many people understand this: If you have a normal job, and no extra special commitments such as a family or a house, then you, yes YOU, can also hire programmers in far off countries.

What does this mean?

It means, that by virtue of being born in a rich Western country, you could manage a team as a hobby, in your spare time.

The same kind of gap between the West and Rest that makes corporations offshore whole departments also lets you compete with said corporations in your spare time.

Interesting, hmm?
