An Atari Videogame was worth 200$ dollars in the 1980's. The same Atari videogame can be bought now for $150, inflation- updated, while at the same time you can buy a better videogame with, lets say, 500$.
Even if the buying power is the same or downgraded, the quality of many products increased.
The quality of life is dropping and will continue to drop.
As for the technology, capitalism is intentionally slowing down the progress of it.
More jobs? Yeah right. Why would people work at all ? Machines can do things better on tasks where human intervention is not required.
This is only an issue in a monetary system. Jobs. Lol...
If you bought a TV 30 years ago, it's probably still working, while new plasma or LCD TVs have an estimated lifespan of 5 years.
Come on, do you even realize what you're saying?
Not to mention everything technology related is made in China nowadays. Because of capitalism. That's not what I call quality
