At one time the most valuable people in society were those who could make and build and repair things. They were the bricklayers, the woodworkers, the stonemasons, the wheelwrights, the carpenters, the blacksmiths, and so on. The most valuable people in modern economies are the consumers, those with lots of money to spend, along with the innovators who can dream up new things for them to spend it on, and those who pride themselves on being able to persuade people to do so.

And isn’t a sad indictment of human nature that the fastest growing industry is probably the phishing scam?
