    All this outsourcing is killing the domestic technology industry. The same thing that happened to manufacturing decades ago when the government turned its back on it is happening now.

    This is why we are going to wind up with an upper class , and a working class . If you are a member of the latter like me , and self employed , raise your rates ... They will never notice . [edit] Things like this are what I am talking about , 400 individuals are worth a TRILLION dollars !!! Why the Frag are there people who go hungry , or elderly who are denied health care , or more prison guard than teachers while so few have so much . At a certain point tye numbers become meaningless for an individual , but could make or break several small countries.... I don't get it .

    The economy's recovery may be a little shaky, but you wouldn't know it from looking at this year's Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans. The combined net worth of the nation's wealthiest climbed to $1 trillion, up $45 billion in 12 months.
