What Recession?

This NYT Editorial piece reflects on the changing dynamic of privacy rights in the work place with emerging digital communication in said workplace.  Specifically, Timothy B. Lee of the Cato Institute notes the changing location of middle class work from factory to office space.  Lee seems to be pointing to the  great inflection of innovative technology that is spreading throughout the modern American office and not commenting on the 10% unemployment rate.   That being said, here is one the most poorly posed statements that could possibly be made in 2009 :

There’s never been a better time to be an American worker. The American economy is steadily replacing back-breaking farm labor and tedious factory work with comfortable white-collar jobs.


Maybe it is still 2006 at the Cato Institute.
