Wages, Work, and the Millennium Economy

We have a new economy. Whether you call it the 'global economy' or the 'Millennium economy' is a matter of perception.

There has always been a global economy. Look at the trade routes of the old world, whether they used wooden ships or camels to transport goods. People always want exotic goods.

The Millennium Economy is different in that we now use electronic devices to instantly communicate, control, and pay for our goods and services.

We also have exported jobs to slave wage countries, all the while being told that it 'improves' our country, no matter where you live.

It improves only the bottom line of those who manipulate the economy.

Everyone else pays the price in the cyber-managed markets.

Wages will continue to stagnate until they reach a point of equity with those of the rest of the world.

Don't worry, there will always be entertainment distractions to keep you from worrying about your loss of income and rights.

New Plans for the New Year

I've been following the news about our current employment situation, not only in the USA but Europe and other countries of interest.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to notice that there is growing unrest amongst the working people of this world when it comes to employment rights, conditions and wages.

These topics will be covered in the coming months by the various media outlets and political commentators.

It will be interesting to see which of them understands and explains the developments in the business culture both national and worldwide.

Don't expect it to be a boring year.
