We are all familiar with how many manual jobs have either moved offshore or been replaced by technology, so should we dumb-down or not?
I am a passionate believer in deploying the last technology provided it makes economic sense. However, I agree that there are lots of unemployed people with the wrong skills in many mature countries. Rather than just doling out unemployment benefit I believe that these people should be making an economic contribution to society; in my mind, unemployment benefit should be linked to community service. Imagine if all the unemployed did ten days a month community service; this would be both economically and socially beneficial.
