It\’s the way \’e tells \’em. Man\’s a comic genius:
We have been losing jobs in industry even before the credit crunch at a rate of nearly 100,000 a year, which, even given the advances in technological productivity, is unsustainable for a country whose future will remain dependent on industrial success and cannot rely on commercial and financial services alone.
We\’re losing jobs in industry *because* of the advances in technological productivity.
We can produce more with less labour….that\’s what an advance in productivity means.
Man\’s a friggin\’ genius.
