Homer’s Odyssey-Outsourcing to India

Here is a great episode from the Simpsons about Outsourcing to India and how one set of norms can spread or reach another part of the world. The norms I am referring is to is cubicle norms or norms of labor ethics as identified in the UN Convention on Economic and Social Rights. Also watch out for some delicious rips American ignorance and Indian arrogance and various other cultural references, such as Homer transforming himself into a sort of Colonel Kurtz.
