    which is pretty much true. companies learned how to replace as many jobs as they could with automation. the problem is we dont have any jobs that can replace them. service jobs dont pay any where near a middle class (as we had it) wage. and since 99% of consumers are employees, it make it even harder on business who sell any thing, as their customers are stressed just making ends meet, or their customers are stressed by the same (at some even companies that sell to other companies end selling to a company that does).

    I am re-reading, circa 2000, DEVIL TAKE THE HINDMOST by Edmund Chancellor, which is a great book on financial speculation and excess.

    Next on tap, Henry Adams’ classic THE WAR OF 1812. Adams was the great- grandson of John Adams.

    I am avoiding current blunders ad scandals by visiting old ones.
