Re: A million jobs lost

"I read this in Worstall terms - the retail industry is now getting more efficient and will have lower operating costs to pass on to consumers. Those who are employed will soon be free to do something more valuable within society, and as society we are as a whole, richer for it, as we are getting more productivity from fewer people."

And it's EXACTLY that sort of crap that earns Worstall all the loathing he so richly deserves.
