Denmark, Japan, Netherlands, Canada, Germany, USA: all worse off then Greece! What are these Greeks doing right? Send a fact-finding mission, stat!
Now earnestly: in the last couple of years the US had the good thinking of importing more than 50 million engineers, technicians, and academics from south of the border. By rights this should reduce the number of low-wage workers. I mean if there are many low-wage workers already it doesn't make sense to import more of them because, hehe, the imports would have to compete with the locals, see? So the US didn't do that, they imported high-wage workers to make things better, or what did you think? Now we just have to find out what went wrong. As the shit hit the fan anyway, we might as well ask an academic. Thanks to immigration now there's Chicano Studies, La Raza Studies, Mexican American Studies, Chicano Hispano Mexicano Studies, and Hemispheric Studies, all with a lot of MAs and PhDs--let's ask those bright guys what can be done.
