We hasten to add that the relationship between financialization and deteriorating relative wages and working conditions is neither straightforward nor exclusive. ’ A number of limitations to offshoring and relocation have also come to the surface. As many press reports in recent years have clarified, these limitations are manifold, especially in the case of manufacturing and servicing moving up the quality ladder. Offshoring may be increasingly disadvantaged as the agglomeration of advantages (rents) in the current home and host countries outweigh its benefits.

Jensen and Kletzer (2007) concluded for 2003– 2005, based on a line rather arbitrarily drawn, that nearly 30 per cent of the US workforce might potentially be ‘tradable’ and therefore offshorable. In 22 Multinational Companies and Domestic Firms a later paper they went into the question of timing, and argued it would be ‘highly unlikely that a significant share of high-wage, skill-intensive activities will move to emerging markets in the short term and even in the long term’ (Jensen and Kletzer 2008, 8).

This gap in research seems particularly odd in light of the widely accepted nostrum that decisions on new investments are equally important as decisions on reinvestment or repatriation of earned profits at foreign locations (cf. Galgóczi et al. 2006, 504). On the other hand, based on data for nine Western European countries over the period 1990–2004, Crinò (2008) found that service offshoring exerted positive and robust effects on domestic productivity: a result that does not seem to match with considerable replacement effects – unless, of course, direct employment losses in the home country from relocation are larger than employment gains from productivity increases.
