Anyone know what the best job skill would be to have during economic collapse?
What would happen if the economic infrastructure of the US broke down, rendering traditional white colar jobs useless? If people can't afford to SPEND SPEND SPEND, then doesn't that mean people in sales/retail/clerical would have trouble keeping their jobs? So, what kinds of practical jobs do you think would be in high demand? Could a bicylce mechanic or plumber have the edge over a college grad who is merely a proficient typist?
