Hi all, Recently, I've been thinking about incomes and expenses in a decent life (for generations after generations). I've made a few observation that each year more and more scientists, engineers, lawyers, bankers, businessmen are employed in our economy. And also a majority of them already inside try to climb up the rank. It is a huge rat race. My question is, If anyone quits rat race and stays at a certain position for extended period of time (without promotions or better job), is his stability in danger? Is he going down the socio-economic ladder because over time more and more jobs will be created and filled above him? Will the progress be difficult for him if he (or his offspring) chose to do so later? Or, is he actually quite stable at his position? as the number of white collar jobs does not boom exponentially as we might think (from business news)? maybe that number remains more or less same only the nature of jobs change in future? it is possible to have progress for him if he (or his offspring) chose to do so later? I think you get my thoughts by now. I'd like to know your view on this two different side/outcome of the future.
