dc.descriptionIn recent years, there has been a wave of outsourcing of by Private Equity firms in the U.S. and Europe. No skilled workers (MIS, AIS or others) are spared from this assault. To paraphrase the words of the Roman Emperor, who, in replying to criticism of his proposal to tax the toilets of Rome: "Money has no smell'. So it is the case with the Emperors of Private Equity. When eyeing high any high-paid U.S / European jobs with a view of shipping them abroad, nothing is off the table. The great conceit of AIS and MIS intellectuals and practitioners is their belief that they are exempt from these outsourcing processes. Some believe that that they enjoy a charmed life; that the demand for their services has an Eternal (shelf) life. They take comfort if the thought that increasing their technical mastery will provides a sufficient bulwark against the onslaught of upheavals in labor and product markets. This act of hubris is reminiscent of King Canute hoping the tide will recede.eng
dc.descriptionEn años recientes, el outsourcing se ha venido convirtiendo en una tendencia tanto en empresas de Europa y los Estados Unidos. Ni siquiera, trabajadores muy calificados se salvan de este asalto. La vanidad de los intelectuales y los profesionales que ejecutan tanto sistemas de información contable (AIS), como sistemas de información de gestión (MIS) es su creencia de que están exentos de estos procesos de outsourcing. Algunos creen que disfrutan de una vida de ensueño, que la demanda de sus servicios está asegurada. Se consuelan pensando que el aumento de su dominio técnico les ofrece una defensa suficiente contra los ataques provenientes del mercado laboral y de productos. Una interpretación desde los estudios críticos indicará que esta posición es un acto de arrogancia, siendo esto el eje de la discusión de este documento. Tal actitud de los profesionales contables es una reminiscencia del Rey Canuto esperando que la marea
