I link to crazy again

Robert Reich makes some ridiculous claims:

  • We manufacture more now with fewer people
  • Robots are taking over most of our manufacturing
  • Making things is no longer as important as designing things

Boy, if this were true, it would imply that we should not worry about the loss of manufacturing jobs. that the migration of factory work to China is essentially meaningless. That an economy (and a populace) focused on invention and creative expression has a much brighter future than one based on raw physical labor. That societies that seek to control and manage people are going to be less successful in the “Designer Economy” than those that let people express themselves with vigorous debate.
