My local Wal-mart just tripled the number of auto checkout counters. Another couple hundred thousand entry level jobs will soon be gone. Of course, those checkout counters require software and skilled design. Engineers who can do those thngs will always have expertise to sell. Those countries with cultures that produce capable producers will go to the forefront. This used to be us. No more. We do turn out the most and best lawyers, but lawyers produce nothing except re-distribution of the production of others.
