I was talking to a friend at the weekend. We discussed what happens to the economy when all those developers drop out of the industry and earn 30-40% of their salary elsewhere. What are the knock-on effects in the economy when all that spending power goes? Likewise when someone gets back into IT after months of unemployment and decides that they will spend as little as possible of their salary.
These things have a serious effect on the economy.
