Often times the problem is the US sanctioning countries or forcing them to agree to ridiculous debts. This has historically been the greatest problem with non-free market systems.
It has nothing to do with the US economy taking a hit or the fact that there is now more going on in other parts of the world. It is all because Slashdot complained about an H1B Visa program that exists to supply cheap labor.
Yes, I fed the troll. Sue me.
Capitialism is destroying the environment, it is a very stupid way to do things. It will be the end of us.
No. They never tried it. What's this "other people's wealth" the Earth has resources and the human race has the capacity to do work.
I think the idea that we are going to engineer the environment is crazy and dangerous. The fact is we don't HAVE to keep dumping CO2 into the air. We can dramatically shift our priorities and resources to finding alternative energy.
Granted, the economic incentives for clean energy aren't there right now, but is capitalism a suicide pact?
People can't afford to go to school anymore, so they can all just go to bootcamps. They'll eventually learn to write good code.
Well, you get a lot of applicants to any job these days. A lot of people are looking for work. But you need to find appropriate candidates.
You can't hire anyone too young, because they don't have the skills and haven't proven themselves at a real job. You don't want to hire anyone over 35 because the field moves quickly and you don't want someone who doesn't keep up.
You also need people who have the hot skill right now. Ruby used to be really hot, but now we are looking for Python. Can you train a Ruby programmer to be a Python programmer? When you are running a business you can't take the risk to find out!
You're really looking for about five years experience and experience with the right technologies. This doesn't sound to hard, but a lot of these people are asking for outrageous amounts of money!
Furthermore, you need the right cultural fit. At my company, we all wear hoodies. We wouldn't want to hire someone who wears a fleece. We need someone who breathes code. Last week I interviewed someone who was a good match, except he said he swam in code! We had to cut that interview short.
Also, you can't hire people with too much self-esteem. People with self-esteem are always asking if they can be managers and constantly leaving you just because someone offered them more money. So in addition to the exact right amount of experience, in the right field, and cultural fit, you need someone who is a little bit broken that you can build up into your perfect coder.
It is all very difficult. And we are a firm anyone would want to work for. We can only pay $50,000 a year, but you get to work with really cutting edge technologies like Python! So I'm sure if we have difficultly finding the right people, anyone would.
I like looking out the window. I can look at a screen whenever I want. A picture of the outside isn't the same. It isn't 3D.
Oh, wait they would automate them anyway, they'd just take a couple more years to do it.
Oh, wait. I'm trapped seven years in the past.
BUT TEH === ! IT SUX!!
Can't you recognize sarcasm?
So? You failed to argue that IP creates a free market and instead argued that a free market can never exist.
More STEM helps the economy. But the economy doesn't reward you for going into STEM. It's pretty simple, so if you are confused, it is because you make invalid assumptions about the economy.
I hope we find out who the accounting firm is, so we know not to work them. It's very important to avoid employers who will fire you arbitrarily.
He says he did not name drop his employer. Comcast will not release the tapes. And the email to his employer was not released to him.
