that our free market enterprise system is based IN PART upon the financial ignorance and stupidity of individuals and/or groups...
This is a very interesting observation... one would think at first blush that you are logically correct, but since we have been doing this, in some form or another, for years, it has been sustainable so far, albeit not our brand of a free market but TRADE in general. There has been several SciFi books and movies that have predicted that robots will do all the manual labor and fight all the wars so that MANKIND can pursue a more intellectual direction, but what about the other 80% who do not have the mental equipment for that? We will always need crops picked and bathrooms cleaned and other labor intensive jobs that are not fit for robots to do... However, AI is another story altogether and quite possible several years off... it's first use will be in the military of course and maybe into space, but not right away for the rest of us. For the next 50-75 years, it will be the SOS...

Why do Americans hate going to work so much?
it may be all over the world as you say... where employees bitch to be bitching... but not everyone all over the world wants to get the most amount of money for the least amount of work like they do here in the US of A.

P T Barnum of the circus said that or something very close and it is basically true. Is a person insecure or outfitted with business savvy to think like this. I mean do we not want to make the most amount of money for the least amount of work? Society has a pecking order and at each level the below is being screwed, so much so that it is commonplace.

We have a free market within certain restrictions, but we are greedy. If I have a low profit margin I have to sell a lot of units let's say, but it the profit margin is high, I don't have to sell many at all. If 80% of the people are unaware of the game that is being played upon them, then does that mean we should inform them or take advantage of them? It is not my fault that you are ignorant.

Women will soon be in charge
These are some excellent points, especially about the transfer of wealth... I have also noticed when my wife and I are out to purchase anything from a condo to car to appliance, the sales person (male or female) spends more time addressing my wife than me... and, quite honestly I do rely on her judgment more often than not.

Women will soon be in charge
While my original post was opinionated and generalized, I think you have gotten the point that I was trying to make and that is that MEN have to change. Certainly no all men are like I describe but there are a bunch of males who are exactly like that. And, no all women are as thorough as I describe but those that are have been taking jobs away from males for years. When I was in sales, my coach used to tell me to observe women in groups and listen to the questions that they were asking each other and new members to the group. In order to be successful I needed to adopt that approach and when I did, it worked and a bond was quickly develop. I am merely trying to open up eyes by slapping males in the face so to speak.

There is nothing wrong with pulling alongside, if males can keep up... Over my 20+ years in the college classroom, women are generally more interested in knowledge, more creative, and think more outside the box than males... I wish it were not so, but it is, at least for me... But, my size could be too small to matter...
