Roger, Creative Destruction and I

by AdrianFohr

GM outsources their factory jobs and havoc ensues in the town of Flint, Michigan. What is not shown however is the wealth that is created wherever the factor jobs end up (Mexico). This torpid and painful process is what Joseph Schumpeter calls 'Creative Destruction.' It's also strange that the wealthy would hold a 'Great Gatsby' party, as the book was very, very critical of the wealthy.
