The Economist's cover story this week focuses on the failed promises of the
Internet but offers this upbeat observation: "Even inequality may, in some
cases, be reduced thanks to the Internet. A computer programmer in Bangalore
or Siberia can use the Internet to work for a software company in Seattle
without leaving home, and can expect to be paid a wage that is closer to
that of his virtual colleagues at the other end of the cable."
I love the automatic assumption that wages will level up, not down.
