Has the Internet "Devalued" You?
I just finished reading an article with an interesting view on the economic effects of the Internet by Tom Foremski of ZDNet. It made me think a bit about what long term changes the Internet might bring to our way of life and economic well-being here in the USA. We all hear the mantra that losing jobs to other parts of the world will more than be made up for by the the "better" hi-tech jobs that will be created here in the USA.
Sounds great, but in reality not everyone will be equipped to do these "hi-tech" jobs. I wonder if we will eventually become a nation of people with low paid service jobs and high paid technology jobs with nothing in the middle.
