Case in point... Yours truly.

I came to the U.S. as a child because my mom wanted me to have a good education and a chance at a better career. Lo and behold, I can now go back to Sri Lanka or even India and still keep the *exact* same job.

What's wrong with this picture?

One holdout I will have on the stimulus plan is that it does have incentives for educational institutions. This will have long term implications for jobs here as well as future companies and employees therein.

But the short-term is still a big question.
Somehow, I doubt a medical or law school grad would be fine flipping burgers for a living. I seriously don't see that paying off the student loans.

On a side note:
I haven't read "Microtrends", but the title is awfully reminiscent of the Butterfly Effect.
