Corporations have had a year of record profits, while the rest of us worry about holding onto a job. And these same corporations, to save a few pennies, take these profits and invest in high tech equipment in the Third World.

To be fair, lots of things that we use daily would be a lot more expensive if they are not made in some 'Third World' countries.

Meanwhile US factories remain in the last century.

Come to see the lovely trains and city roads of Sydney. They looked from the last century too.

By a fluke of economics, computer keyboards are still made in the USA, and I can buy a decent key board for a mere $20 bucks. And this was because manufacturers invested in high technology. We are rapidly becoming a Third World country.

When I moved to Australia, I thought I was moving from 'Third World' to a developed country. Seems like the reverse is true.
