the prevailing buzz amongst analysts is that we are at the end of the manufacturing age in north america, and i tend to agree.
the analysts speak of us entering a service economy wherein we will all be gainfully employed in providing a service of some sort......
...everything from baby-sitting to counceling to sales.
except that money (capital) is moving so quickly these days that the service jobs are being taken by new immigrants, or outsourced overseas......as anyone who has spoken to a call-in service department recently will understand.
and with the emerging next economy involving total connectivity and information management, only those with a complete understanding of this technology and administration will be able to capitalise.
so it begs the question......
