Rickymouse, that excuse is a very old one and not accurate at all.
Please consider what happened when cars first came on the scene. Within a few decades all the horse industry employees lost their jobs but many new
and different jobs came along to compensate.
I lived through the introduction of the photocopier. Man, did that cost jobs. Huge numbers of people whose job was to provide a copy of a document
suddenly lost their jobs to a new machine.
These changes are part of a society expanding at an ever increasing rate.
SO we replace the electrical grid with a $2000.00 dollar box. Someone has to make, service and install those millions of boxes. Someone has to
deliver them! Then, every family in the country has a few thousand extra dollars in their pocket every year! They are going to spend that in other
parts of the economy.
Jobs would not be lost, they would change.
The people that would suffer would be the Multinational money sucking aholes. I have no problem with that happening at all!!!
But they are the ones protecting their butts making damn sure that they are the ones doing the sucking!
