Re: Humans Need Not Apply

It has been clear for a long time that we need some sort of new economy, but what that can be is not at all clear. If there is going to be all sorts of excess labor how is this excess going to live. Do we just let them starve in the streets? If they [more]

New Jobs High, Pay Lower

It is announced that the number of new jobs in June was the highest since 2001.* Good news, why are people so depressed about the economy?

New jobs pay 23% less than the jobs lost in the Great Recession may be a reason?**

Re: S&P 500 Aristocrat high yielders

Re: Time to ramp up NASA?

I think that human life is a gigantic experiment by nature to see if an animal capable of rational thought can survive. I also think the jury is still out. The evolution from the first humanoids to the present is only 2 or 3 million years. That is [more]
