    Continuous expansion isn’t easy; as economies become saturated, there’s less opportunity for profitable investment. So they have to invent ways to turn more things into commodities, invading us through privatization and monetizing every aspect of our lives, from our emotions to genetic material.

    Mr. Ima, you are most certainlly correct, Africa is the “next place.” The pattern seems to be that we find an underdeveloped country where the number of people are higher than the number of jobs so the people are very happy (or their governments say that they are, i.e. China) for a job in a factory or whatever. After a period of time the workders start to say “wait a minute, people elsewhere are getting three times what we are for the same job.” Then there are either riots or strikes or some such that are, for a time, brutally put down until the USA, France or Time magazine threatens to intervene and the wages rise. This scenario is repeated a couple of times and pretty soon the country isn’t such a bargain anymore, especially if you factor in the cost of shipping. So its time to move on to the next place. But guess what? After Africa there are no next places, except maybe South and Central America, but if memory serves we did that already. Plus several of those countries are doing rather well already and don’t need us.

    In addition, having taught the resident population how to build and run factories they can kick us out and become our competition. So how is the Mars landing project coming along?
