That all sounds great, but we won't all of a sudden need 61,000 new medical transcriptionists every year for 20 years. ;)

Those people all had different jobs, or the same job somewhere else... so technically there wasn't a job created, there was a job moved.

Court reporters; medical transcriptionists; virtaul assistants; voice over people; architects; programmers - all need broadband. And they would like to live in better America. That's how BB improves the economy.

All from BB Properties mag. in 2005.

Can someone explain to me how having broadband (instead of dial-up internet that EVERYONE can get) is going to create 61,000 jobs per year for the next 20 years? If it will create jobs from people doing more online, then it will decrease jobs from the brick and mortar businesses going out of business. Am I missing something?
