Submission + - Asia's skill shortage

enrac writes: "An article in the Economist: ry_id=9645045

talks about skill shortages in Asia which could hamper growth for that region:

"IT SEEMS odd. In the world's most populous region the biggest problem facing employers is a shortage of people. Asia has more than half the planet's inhabitants and is home to many of the world's fastest-growing economies. But some businesses are being forced to reconsider just how quickly they will be able to grow, because they cannot find enough people with the skills they need"

You know, they could outsource that work back here . . ."
