Как прокомментируют это наши записные экономисты?

В особенности интересно мнение адептов "трех миров".

Dear Editor:

In his letter of March 31st, William Hawkins merely assumes that
manufacturing jobs are better than service-sector jobs.  He's mistaken.

The average hourly wage in the U.S. for non-supervisory professional and
business services workers now is 9.6% higher than is the average hourly
wage for non-supervisory manufacturing workers.  And this difference is
increasing.  In 1980 this difference was less than one percent; in 1990
it was 3.3%; in 2000 it was 8.3%.  The bulk of high-paying jobs is in
the service sector.

It's time that people abandon the irrational fetish for manufacturing.
