Aphorism of the Day

"That is exactly my point about jobs lost due to technological change or outsourcing or whatever. All of these usually result in a net benefit to economies, but to the fellow who has lost his or her job, it is tough. But in a truly free economy, there is enough opportunity for an enterprising person to find something else to do. Also, redundancies are fairly easy to predict and prepare for, unless one is self-deluded. Or has the terrible attitude that the world owes them a living. Nothing of the sort. If you're useful, you'll be used, and paid for it. If not, you won't. So stop moaning.

In fact, go start a blog or something."
