We're the victims of our success. We have regulations to 'protect' our workers and environment. Our children want to enjoy life more... Most cannot compete with their counterparts in the Far East. Our politicians buy votes by giving generous welfare. Why they want to take a job that means taking out the free health care?
The worst has yet to come. For every 10 jobs returned from China or Mexico, only one job is gained due to automation and robots. The rich will be richer as the companies will be more profitable by hiring fewer employees.
