So who is that article a shill for? Is it to pacify the masses? “Well, I can’t find work today, but I’m not alone, so it’s not so bad.” Is it to soothe the employers? “Everybody’s budget is tight. I have to make money.” It sure isn’t for the unemployed.
Technology is, however, lost in itself. Wouldn’t be the first time an industry has generated too much product for its own good. We are awash in microprocessors – and we just don’t know what went wrong. How can it all have become so affordable?
