Interesting. The inanity of “economics” is also revealed when “economists” express bafflement over the fact that, while improvements in productivity used to create wage increases, they no longer do.

Any businessman can tell you that it is because improvements in productivity never caused wage increases in the first place.

It was collective bargaining which caused the increase in wages. Methods which created productivity improvements were used as a bargaining chip in collective bargaining as trade offs for higher wages. When the labor unions were destroyed, businesses were able to implement those methods and improve productivity without having to offset them with higher wages, because workers had lost the power to force the the trade off.
