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.
