Paying to stay dumb

Today I came across an article about students (most IT-related) who "outsource" their work (even complete dissertations) to India and Romania. Students contract their work to the lowest bidder.

Question: who are the smartest? The ones who try to pay as little as possible to not getting educated? Or the ones who get payed a little while enhancing their skills?

Question 2: who will eventually rule the world? The ones that build skills or the ones that leave the opportunity to learn?

How stupid can you be!

They are mistaking what to outsource.

If Americans are paying Pakistanis and Ukrainians to write their essays, it won't be long before Americans have to pay Pakistanis and Ukranians to run their companies. (See my post on Essay Fraud.)

Whoops! According to some software industry leaders, this is already starting to happen. (See my post on the Globally Integrated Enterprise.)

That's life.
It's like buying some simple BASIC program and sell it to IBM. That's the way to get the king of the world. Unfortunately! ;-)
