US: nation of servants?

In the ominous front-page story, "Shifting US Economy Pinches the Middle Class," June 17, the author doesn't fully focus on the most ominous aspect of the gathering storm. Education alone cannot solve the core problem, which is that a service economy does not create new wealth. This can only be created if you manufacture something of value. While manufacturing expands in the Far East, Western Europe, and south of the border, the US is becoming a nation of servants, who will be paid accordingly - and we'll feel more than just pinched!
