    The categorization over time is ahistorical.

    In 1901, Amalgamated Copper and US Rubber were very much the high tech of the age…

    I think this is instructive. It shows how the focus of the economy has shifted to intellectual property (tech and healthcare = good) and financial engineering (not so good).
