Comment My definition of financial bubble (Score 1) 267

I used to define a financial bubble as when the guy in the cubicle next to you brags about how much he made in his investments. When that started to happen, I knew the market was ready for a correction.

Now my definition is "When Slashdot starts offering investment advice"

To answer the OP, "Sell every crypto currency you have right now"

And you don't know that the other countries mentioned also have a unionized teaching workforce? Australia , Germany , and Sweden all have active teacher's unions.

Your right wing anti union propaganda does not hold up when researching the actual conditions in educationally high ranking nations. The rest of the world does not follow what you believe.

Labor will be automated and people driven out of work until the price of labor (wages, salaries and benefits) is less than the price of additional automation.
Automation only causes unemployment in the short run.

Once people get used to working for less and adopt a lower standard of living, employment will go back up.

The minimum compensation necessary to maintain existence is an absolute floor. This minimum represents a life so miserable most first world citizens would find it unacceptable. Between that floor and current wage levels is a lot of room
