In The Digital Age....We Simply Don't Need As Many People
Vudu Movie Service Acquired by Wal-Mart for More Than $100-Million
We don't need video stores and tens of millions of square feet of retail space
We don't need bank branches, hundreds of thousands of employees, and hundreds of millions of square feet of retail space
We don't need P&C insurance agents as sales move online
We don't need as many airline workers...
Continental Airlines Inc. - 600 Reservation Agents
We could get rid of more than half of the over 20,000,000 people working for government
We don't need as many nursing homes and home health care workers as the millions of unemployed can now care for their parents
We could go on and on and on.......
The problem is all those people were paying into Social Security, Medicare and retirement accounts so our current retirees could relax.......
