3. Everyone has to lower their standards. Everyone, but the people in control.

Energy: "They don't care so much about pollution. If you want to stay competitive you have to accept more pollution"

Jobs: "They'll do it for less money. If you want to stay competitive you have be paid less"

Healthcare: "They don't have healthcare. If you want to stay competitive learn to live without it"

Housing: "They live in corporate housing as part of their pay. If you want to stay competitive you might want to do the same"

The last one isn't familiar to Americans but is more common in China. I could see something like that eventually spreading.


What's the point in progress if it doesn't improve peoples lives?
