John Robb : This points to a bigger problem. It was common to pick up a book in the eighties (and even earlier) and find smart writers pointing to the coming boom in information service jobs. I don't see that type of forward thinking today as information service jobs are under pressure. What's next? I don't buy into the idea that inward looking jobs (just selling to Americans) are the wave of the future. We need something we can sell to the rest of the world.
One inadvertant strategy (that may be in process) is that we plunge the world in chaos and sell them corporate mercenary services, weapons, and more.
