    Things are gonna keep getting harder, it will take more brainpower to get and hold a good paying job. I got my kids believing, next up is to convince the grandkids... I tell them to educate and train for a job that a computer can't do, or can't do without supervision....

    The answer is simple and can be summed up in one word; GREED.

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greed:

    Greed is the inordinate desire to possess wealth, goods, or objects of abstract value with the intention to keep it for one's self, far beyond the dictates of basic survival and comfort. It is applied to a markedly high desire for and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.

    As a secular psychological concept, greed is, similarly, an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs. It is typically used to criticize those who seek excessive material wealth, although it may apply to the need to feel more excessively moral, social, or otherwise better than someone else.

    Greed of workers wanting more and more for their labor.

    Greed of busniness owners to have more and more profit

    Greed of people who want to do nothing but have the government provided more and more

    Greed of people who want more and more luxeries and thus overuse credit to obtain what they are unwilling to save to get

    Greed of groups who wish to display their superiority over other groupings which causes friction and violence

    Greed of people who want the government to hand out more and more entitlements

    etc, etc, etc... Greed, Greed, Greed...
    the greed works on many levels. the greed of the american worker demanding so much money, but then that same greed causes these same people to refuse to buy goods that are made by people getting that money.

    If everyone in America demands 25 or more an hour and only buys products made for 1 dollar or less we got a problem

    I agree, I only listed a few examples off the top of my head while typing. I know I didn't get them all, by an stretch of the immagination, thus the etc, etc, etc...at the bottom. Thank you for another example. Of course, I said before, most of everything that everyone is posting here leads back to greed of one form or another, the differences is only in the details of what is done and who is the greedy party.

    If you had a brain in your head you'd realize I wasn't refuting your post, I was expanding on it.
