The good news is, if you have a talent, the world wants it, and it has never been so easy to show your talent to the world.
The bad news is, especially for us fat & lazy Americans, is that the great, century-long era of Prosperity-on-Autopilot is over.
The world still wants serious talent. And it still wants people pushing mops, digging ditches, waiting tables and slinging burgers.
It’s the people in the middle who nobody knows what to do with anymore. And the politicians who claim that they do, are lying.

So I put together this colorful table in SmartDraw to dramatize the contrast
