Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ford paid well enough that his workers could afford to buy his cars. That meant that the could also afford housing and food. That meant that every job at Ford led to three or four jobs elsewhere in the economy. Web developer cottage industry workers probably don't generate the same multiplier effect. Do you have any numbers on that?
