    the "service economy," which I always assumed was a lot of administrative work - defined many different ways - with very few people creating anything other than paperwork.

    Demolishing our country's manufacturing base could lead only to one thing:  people's paying a lot more money to more people pushing paper and relying on finance for our real money-making corporations.  The only industrial base we have left, with the exceptions of Boeing, John Deere and Harley-Davidson, are military contractors.

      (thank you President Obama) and one could argue that Boeing is also a defense contractor.

      The issue with hospital administrators is that they are often high paying jobs which contribute nothing except to drive costs higher. Honestly, I wouldn't have a problem if this were about mid-levels who could get reasonable jobs. But that's not really the issue.
