your assessment is correct. I have pondered this myself.

from my vantage point. the question really is... what is the economy?
when people can make as much or more selling insurance than I do....
why should they bother with my skill set?

only geeks like me would do that.... and if "insurance" is really just organized gambling writ large. then my best guess is that what we know as the "economy" today...is seriously bloated.

to be fair and not pick on insurance people. would we really need accountants or CPA's if not for tax purposes?

my own occupation is safe for now. in fact, there is a SERIOUS shortage of qualified people at my level.
the question will soon be answered, will fiat money and socialism work in the digital age?

and if so... how much fluoride would that take? is there enough? supply and demand, that I can understand!
