Abstract: Globalization is a phenomenon of great worldwide interests. Owing to advancement in production technology and lower transportation and communication cost, fragmenting and contracting out production processes have spilled over into international arena with outsourcing of numerous material components and service activities. With a significant increase in the degree of internationalization, outsourcing for the time being is loosely coined. It is therefore clearly difficult to understand the explicit impacts of outsourcing in the economy. In this thesis, both theoretical and empirical frameworks aiming to analyze the economic impacts of this ongoing phenomenon have been developed.
