Skills shortages
I'm hearing this lovely phrase doing the rounds. Now that business is picking up again economies in the west are complaining of skills shortages.

The problem is that companies don't build skills in the naturally quieter times of the economic cycle. The paradox is that shareholders are rewarded for cutting costs and offshoring tasks where the skill is developed and stays in that country, regardless of whether it makes sense.

So, here we are again with skills shortages.
