Pregnancy Process Outsourcing

I wrote about this a month back in another forum. I wanted to post it simultaneously here, which I could not due to stiff neck problem and an extended break from online activities.

Change - Where are we heading?

I accept, "change is inevitable". But the following news (refer Guardian - How to split up: Vienna hosts world's first divorce fair) gives me an impression that for business sake, people will go to any extent to bring change by force !!!

"Detectives will explain the benefits of spying on your partner while experts in DNA will be present to talk about paternity tests"

"Almost every second marriage fails in Austria, and in Vienna, it is as many as two out of three marriages"

I had doubts about future of marriage and wrote about it few years back. Then my apprehension was from individual perspective. Now after reading the above news, i can confidently suggest VCs and companies to get into this vertical for business sake. They can have separate SBUs like Love SBU, Love-Making SBU, Unwanted Pregnancy SBU, Marriage SBU, Divorce SBU, Single Parent SBU, Re-union SBU, Remarriage SBU, Old Age SBU, et al.

What all new businesses are we going to see in the days to come?

One, which came to my mind was, Pregnancy Process Outsourcing (PPO). PPO will be a profitable business in future. Considering the ageing population in the west and almost nil or negative population growth in few European countries, people may opt for the easy way out to keep the economy running.

yup you probably are the first person to use the term - pregnancy process outsourcing.

But I feel you have left the term itself without a definition. It is not clear what you mean by PPO from your article. It would have been good if you had defined the term better after coining it.

Anyway thanks for submitting this as one of your best blogs :)
