Thanks, Bob. From Bob Jaskulski: "Thanks, Sue. I really enjoy the mix of history and MBA stuff that this exchange encourages. My previous posting focused on patterns rather than change. Some of the more important changes are: 1: The concurrent development of container ships, GPS navigation, the computer, bar codes, and truck/train integration, 2: the ability of capital to move around the world is seconds, and 3: the relatively recent political stability in such lower wage countries as China, Russia, India and Brazil. (Bric) In the 1880s, after the invention of the steam engine and the screw propeller, it was (relatively) easier to move workers (labor) from one area of the globe to another. Now, it is (relatively) easier to move capital. Recent changes in technology have affected higher education greatly. On-line education (which can emanate from anywhere, serve anyone, and benefit from national media advertising) is changing the educational landscape. It is only a matter of time before our American History students are graded by a T.A. sitting in Mumbai. (After, of course, she has finished her biscuit and tea.) Bob"
From Bob Jaskulski. Thanks, Bob: "All: From memory (as I read the article yesterday): “woke up 8,000 employees at 4am from their dorm rooms and gave them a biscuit and tea…..” The last time I read anything similar to this was when I was doing research for my Master’s Thesis in history. I was reading the minutes of Parliamentary hearings conducted in 1816 regarding the use (and abuse?) of orphan child labor in the then new textile factories that were sprouting up all over England. They were also kept in “dorms” (owned by the factories) and awakened at 4am and given (surprisingly) a “biscuit and tea” before being marshaled to work 16 hours per day. Kid you not. 200 years removed. England became a world power built on the backs of vulnerable workers such as these—along with vulnerable workers in India and Africa. This period of economic/military dominance lasted about 100 years. America became a world power on the backs of Immigrant workers before WW1. Our period of economic/military dominance is just now ebbing. (Some would say this first became evident with Korea/Vietnam—see Tom Engelhardt, Jan. 4, Truthdig). I am not one who believes that history repeats itself, but it is possible to find reoccurring patterns. Bob"
