The 25 Riskiest Outsourcing Hubs in the World

Now this was interesting:

After a year that saw terrorist attacks in Mumbai, kidnapping for profit in Mexico, and the unexpected meltdown of Satyam, one of India's biggest IT services firms, corporate America's cries for the CIO to get things done "better, faster, cheaper" offshore may begin to be drowned out by the more moderate mantra of today's outsourcing customer: "safer, more stable, more secure."

  1. Bogota, Colombia
  2. Bangkok, Thailand
  3. Johannesburg, South Africa
  4. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  5. Kingston, Jamaica
  6. Delhi/Noida/Gurgaon, India
  7. Manila/Cebu/Makita, Philippines
  8. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  9. Mumbai, India
  10. Jerusalem, Israel
  11. Curitiba, Brazil
  12. Dalian, China
  13. Juarez, Mexico
  14. Brasilia, Brazil
  15. Chandigarh, India
  16. Colombo, Sri Lanka
  17. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  18. Quezon City, Philippines
  19. Accra, Ghana
  20. Pune, India
  21. Chennai, India
  22. Hanoi, Vietnam
  23. Bangalore, India
  24. Hyderabad, India
  25. Kolkata, India

I do not have access to the book so I cannot really comment on the methodology involved, but I would be very hesitant to take this at face value, as with everything, ranking of such cities is very judgemental and not to be relied upon to actually base your long term service delivery decisions upon.
