ASU grad sees rural Arkansas as corporate outsourcing post Arkansas News Bureau (m/dd)
"With the best and the brightest leaving, rural areas are left to their eventual, imminent decline," said White, who sits on the corporate boards of Mattel Inc. and Certegy Inc.

And that represents a double whammy against Arkansas and especially the Delta, which has seen thousands of blue-collar jobs transferred overseas.

At the same time, many U.S. corporations are outsourcing technology-related jobs to such countries as India, China and Pakistan. Instead of those white-collar jobs going overseas, ARS envisions bringing many of those positions back to rural America.
