can't argue with that....but I don't waiting 5 years in order to make 6 figures. I do want to get out of debt...and though the CoL in Colorado is high, its not THAT high.

let me think back to my int'l econ class. we clearly have the comparative adv in capital-intensive goods. i suppose that includes service industries too, like financial stuff, legal services, etc. but i don't see how manufacturing could just completely go overseas. i think as market barriers are relaxed and we become more of a global market, american wages will fall and the auto industry will stay. that's the free market for you.

but with automation, automobiles are no longer as capital-intensive but can be more personalized...the skills can also be more easily reproduced with just pennies on our dollar.

We need something that only we can do feasibly, think new energy technologies, agricultural technologies, and medicines for the permanetly injured and terminally ill(this will likely become a big issue the increased prevelence of birth defects, "prosperity diseases" and the increase expectations of the populace for health and personal sex appeal.

I mean, we know not to ask anymore than $40,000.00 from the Family Research Concil, Planned Parenthood or the Southern Poverty Law Center, but we know that we must refuse if an offer of $99,999.99 from a firm that represents a bunch of companies who own their own 20-story office towers. But what about your more traditional job in the big city at a start up or botique firm or with the feds.

You know what, what DO YOU consider reasonable?

Errrmmm.... Does it make more people more better off for America or the someone else to build cars?

I'm just talking outside of rarejob oppurtunities (those not practicing for a charity or the guys who represent Wal-Mart)

One thing that isn't being discussed in this conversation is the structure of the world economy. Do the rules of comparitive advantage(right-liberal to left-center theory)/(leftist theory)world system theory favor the U.S. to be a major auto maker?

I think the low 50s is, but there are those who think that is greedy and there are those who claim that $53,000.00 a year is insulting for a new attorney, if not humiliating. I would consider $100,000 greedy, $49,000 insulting and $38,000 humiliating.

I would consider the Southern Rockies and Northwest to be "liberal" (New Mexico (though its becoming more "progressive"), California (though, they can be argued to be progressive), Oregon, Washington, Arizona and Colorado (They are a little to the right, but the are becoming more liberal).

I used to be the nuerotic version of Keith Olberman before I started law school.

Yeah, but isn't that an AMERICAN car tradition. Perhaps they should just take an import design and change it a little bt.
