Yeah, fair enough; but by ‘us’, I mean not ‘them’ It’s a point I’ve made myself in terms of “things are getting worse”; actually they’re getting better overall. Still, for a lot of the old industrial nations, manufacturing as they used to know it is gone and not coming back. It quite depressing to read that the Brexiters think they’re going to compete in manufacturing with Asia; it just isn’t going to happen.
That it is a good thing overall doesn’t detract from the fact that it is bad for specific groups close to us; particularly those in countries with low general education attainment like the US and the UK. The move to paying for third-level education is particularly bad for the long-term, I reckon.
