While the Internet had made some people billionaires overnight, it also has killed thousand and thousands of jobs. Think about it. Things we used to have other people do, airline reservations, mail, hotel reservations, car rentals, recipes, books, music, can all be done form your desk at home. no more record stores, book stores are shutting down here and there, reservationists are dwindling, you can hardly find a travel agency anymore.
In car assemble plants, robots are replacing people, where it used to take 2 people to install a windshield, it now only takes one, if any.
So there you have it. Do away with robotics and the internet, and within 6 months, 1 million people will gain employment.
