Work at home insanity
I see where the snake oil salesmen of the "service economy" are now trying to sell the public on the "Internet economy." They seem to think everyone will be able to type happily on their computers from home and road congestion will be a problem of the past. There's something called market saturation. It is what happens if everyone tries to buy to same stock. There's a surge, then a crashing reset to real value. There is no substitute for producing food, repairing equipment needed for life, and producing ships, generators, water filtration equipment, etc. The world needs less get rich quick schemes and promises of easy living and more nuts and bolts practicality.
