I agree. The thing is that I have written so many articles along these lines that I don’t bother to rehash many of the points already covered. One of corporate America’s greatest failings has always been shortsighted instant gratification, adding much to America’s boom and bust cycles. Germany in recent years has avoided this pitfall and thus stays mostly strong when other nations take a dive.
Unfortunately with world populations continuing to surge and AI/robotics eating jobs there is a worldwide worker glut, that will only continued to grow.
