Beyond Offshore

(p.202) 7 Conclusion

Jamie Peck

Oxford University Press

This chapter draws together the principal findings and conclusions of the book, focusing on the transformative capacities of the outsourcing complex, from a site of tactical and responsive strategies to the more recent achievement of an “infrastructural” presence. The transnational architecture of the outsourcing complex is the site of a new spatial-organizational fix for globalizing corporations, the logic of which is one of “dislocation.” It is also an engine for commodification and routinization, with significant implications for the quality and location of employment opportunities and for the pace and path of automation. The chapter characterizes the outsourcing complex and its incipient organizational tendencies before assessing its consequences for the ongoing “redivision” of labor at the international scale.

Keywords:   employment restructuring, globalization, outsourcing complex, commoditization, routinization
