2004 A World Connected Essay Contest: The purpose for the Essay Contest is to foster debate and dialogue about important global issues. We are not looking for a particular perspective, rather well-reasoned essays that contribute, in some meaningful way, to the debate on how to achieve a better, more flourishing, more cooperative world.


First Prize: $5,000

Second Prize: $2,500

Third Prize: $1,500

Honorable Mention: Four prizes of $250 each.

Outsourcing the use by businesses of labor from foreign countries has been the subject of much debate recently.

Read the following two recent articles on outsourcing and write an essay no longer than 2500 words that considers the arguments made by each author. Deadline: June 1, 2004

Daniel Drezner, "Outsourcing the Bogeyman," Foreign Affairs, May/June 2004

Jeff Madrick, "Questioning Free Trade Mathematics," New York Times, March 18, 2004

You might also consider the following questions in writing your essay: What effect does outsourcing have on the American economy? On the economies of other countries, such as India, which receive outsourced work? On businesses in both the America and in other countries? What are the potential benefits or problems of outsourcing? How should governments respond, if at all, to outsourcing? Are companies that employ foreign workers as part of outsourcing betraying an obligation they have to domestic workers? Prizes will be awarded for the best essays as judged by staff members at aWorldConnected.org and our distinguished panel of judges. aWorldConnected.org will announce winners in September, 2004.
