The article reports that some investors and the companies are discovering the disadvantage of offshoring. They are realizing that for every step forward they take by going to India or China, they may be taking two steps back in terms of disloyalty, defections and theft of ideas. As a result, some are turning to a relatively new phenomenon called "inshoring" or sometimes "insourcing" and farming out those operations to areas of the U.S. that offer cheap labor and/or tax incentives. George Hoyem, managing director with venture capital firm Blueprint Ventures said that an alternative to India and China is outsourcing to low-cost local geographies.
