: : Of course it does Gee, we cant all be winners, basically Capitalism says get with the fucking program or fail and die.
: You seem to be thinking of life as a 100m race - where there is one person ho crosses the line forst and 9 losers. Not so in economics. If you get the lovely job I wanted then I dont turn to dust, I get the next job. no deaths
Good grief Gee...were in the era of global economics now. Entire factories pick up and go. It's not a 100m race, it's more like a marathon to the bottom, as competition requires competitive pricing which is achieved by outsourcing from regions with the cheapest labor and most lax environmental standards.
Even the so-called miracle of "silicon valley" is beginning to experience this same effect.
