More and More are Losing Jobs

Today, Google will anounce Google Wallet.  Yesterday it was a few others.

Digital Money will eliminate the need for most banks, bank branches and cashiers working at banks and retail stores.

The publishing industry is finally acknowledging the convulsive effect of ebooks and readers.

As we move to online education, millions of teaching jobs will be eliminated......

eMail is already making postal workers, post offices and 200,000 vehicles unnecessary.

IT IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD....JUST THE END OF A WORLD AS YOU KNEW IT....AND THE BEGINNING OF WWW.UDDERWORLD.COM

I would be not be surprised if Motely Fool and Alstry join up one day to focus on this historical transition;)

"Digital Money will eliminate the need for most banks, bank branches and cashiers working at banks and retail stores." - As we have gotten closer to a more credit based economy the number of banks and bank branches in my area has increased significantly. 10 years ago there were 3 bank branch office of any type within 2 miles of my house, there are now 7 with two banks have 2 branch office each.

Your area is not reflective of the current trend.......

In most areas, bank branches are shutting down quickly.

And we have barely left the starting gate on the transition to digital money.....

As far as lawyers...we will not need nearly as many in the Digital Age....as most legal transactions and resolutions will be digitized.

As I told you yesterday, here you are using a few anecdotes and not looking at the whole picture.  Last month the economy as a whole added 240,000 jobs.  You see what you want to see and not the big picture.

I have blogged over 3000 blogs confirming the collapse of the Industrial Age with multiple links in each blog in many cases.....

LOL @  Cato...

Hey Cato  any day ending in a Y  is  suspect and  a candidate for destruction according to  some.

As for job destruction,  i'm all for it.   In fact the sooner these jobs are  destroyed the better.

We were meant for much more than this.

Fumbling his confidence
And wondering why the world has passed him by
Hoping that he's bent for more than arguments
And failed attempts to fly, fly

[Chorus]
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

Dreaming about Providence
And whether mice or men have second tries
Maybe we've been livin with our eyes half open
Maybe we're bent and broken, broken

[Chorus]

We want more than this world's got to offer
We want more than this world's got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life, yeah

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live
We were meant to live

 

Please Jam with the LORDZ  on such  a  glorious day...

Smile and live...............  for today will not come again.....

tommorrow is not promised and yesterday will never come back.

 LORDZ  plays bass...

:)

live long and prosper...

You provide links to a few bad news items.  There will always be bad news items in a good economy and bad economy.  Even in a great economy companies go out of business or cut jobs because of bad management or their product is obsolete.  The economy is constantly changing so many corporations will go out of business.  Newer more innovative companies will take their place. If you look at the whole economy it is growing.
