nathanjonny asks: what do you think the US goverment should do to save the industry, i mean the economy of usa depends competly of the foreing handwork now.
» We say: The thing that would sincerely help more than anything would be to encourage jobs in industries that need them. We have incredible disparities between where the jobs are and where they need to be, and some of that is responsible for the unemployment rate. (There’s a whole concept about this called the Beveridge Curve, which surprisingly doesn’t make us thirsty.) One thought we have is that the government needs to put some of its money into training people in fields that are actually seeing lots of growth, like information technology. The problem that we’re seeing is that there are jobs out there but more people need to be qualified for them. We need fewer psychology majors and more computer science majors. And more people getting education in their later years. (It’s our Office Hours! Ask us a question!)
