I read your post quite well, and i know what type of answer you want to hear. but i am providing you with what I understand from your post and what you want others to say. And please delete the previous posts so this doesn't become a long read for others.


 


You did not read it very well since it had nothing to do with current unemployment numbers.

 

So, if you have some thoughts on this topic, it would be wise for you to read the first post before responding using only mind reading as a basis. Let me simplify that - I'd suggest you offer your thoughts, not what you think I want.

Since we are so against universal basic incomes, the first thing to happen is emigration. Americans will move to developing countries where they can get jobs and live at a decent standard of living. Better be bilingual. Smiley Wink 

 

Then maybe we will wise up. But somehow I doubt it. 


With Trump at the helm, America will no longer be classified as a developed country. More like something out of the remake of the Road Warrior. 

 

Plenty of coal, no forests, no trading partners, walls all around the country while immigrants fly over them in the flying cars we won't have the technical knowledge or capacity to produce.

On another topic a poster very accurately described the changes in the workplace since the '50s and then projected forward to a time when 10% of the workforce can produce all the goods and services needed by our population. That brought up the question - what does the 90% do to support itself?

 

Any ideas??


They  buy from China and because our manufacturing has left the US  the service industries are the one that have grown and they support that 90% that you are speaking about, or don't you believe in the unemployment number these days?
