The Economy works by people getting paid to do a job and these people spend their money to support jobs for other people. We are supposed to be
making most of the things we sell. But this isn't the case, instead of creating jobs we are creating computers to take these jobs away and still
outsourcing all the services and manufacturing to other countries. I bet China has more of our money than the regular people in this country have.
We may own things, but we really do not own it, the banks own most everything legally in this country.
Look at all the land the feds and states own, look at the loan guarantees that the government makes. They use this to figure in assets, so we don't
look like we are so far in the hole. Yet even with that collateral, we are still deep in debt. Nobody pays taxes on this land, so they raise
everyone's property taxes to make up for the loss.
The government is a corporation, a business of a sort. We, the consumer of their services pay for everything. Now communities everywhere apply for
federal match funds to do things they do not really need. This leads to a raising of taxes everywhere. One percent of the people in this country,
the leaders of communities, are spending a real lot of money, they don't want to tell their people of their communities that something isn't cost
effective, instead they try to promote government spending to build the businesses in their communities. That isn't a problem if there is a real
need for what they are applying for, but half the time they are not needed.
So what has this got to do with robotics? Well if there were more people working in factory or production jobs then we would have a more stable
economy. Everything would go better. Computers do not save most companies money, the cost of the programs are huge, and they need to be upgraded
often at high costs. Also these programs are plagued with flaws and need patches or additional paperwork to be created to cover this. Look at the
few medical clinics that just got over 4 billion from the medicare scam they were running, there was no person there to say, how can a little clinic
be doing three quarters of a billion in medical work in a year? Computers can't do that. Now this brings up the cost to the taxpayer of medicare.
These were just a few that got caught, how many smaller ones slipped through the cracks.
