really liked it

This is an enlightening book. It attempts to explain income inequalities, income pricing, and global economies in the US context. It is depressing and exhilarating with winners and losers. If you feel like the 1950's were the best time ever, you will not particularly like the news.

There are bright spots and not so bright spots...craft is coming back, kind of. Everything will be mass produced, unless it is high-end specialties for well paid innovation workers.

Innovation is where it's at. That should be the subtitle and that is what ties it all together. Pay attention to this concept. It explains a lot, but not everything. It will be better to have a high school education in silicon valley than in Detroit.
