  "For all the inherent artistic leanings -- or talent -- one might possess, reproducing 'the real thing' requires the skillfull application of the tools of the art in order to accomplish that ideal. Skill is learned through practice & experiment & 'putting one's self on the line'. From those efforts emerges the filmic or video artist." --- Verne Carlson & Sylvia E. Carlson 1985 _Professional Lighting HandBook_ pg 234

  "In short, both the Mariel data and an examination of how wages have grown for different Ā«skill groupsĀ» over the past few decades confirm that the laws of supply and demand work -- even when it comes to immigration. Moreover, the effect is numerically important, with a 10% increase in supply lowering wages by 3%-4% in the national labor market, and by at least 10% in the exceptional context of the Mariel supply shock." --- George J. Borjas 2016 _We Wanted Workers: UnRaveling the Immigration Narrative_ pg140 (citing George J. Borjas 2015 September "The Wage Impact of the Marielitos: A ReAppraisal" NBER research working paper #21588; George J. Borjas, Richard B. Freeman & Lawrence F.

  "One of the first to weigh in was Milton Friedman, the influential University of Chicago economist who contended in a 1970-09-13 essay...that a corporation had but one legitimate 'social' responsibility: 'to increase its profits so long as it...engages in open and free [i.e. without initiation of force] competition without deception or fraud'." --- Rick Wartzman 2017 _The End of Loyalty: The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in the USA_ pg265

  "A study of Carpatho-Rusyn males in Minneapolis showed that, while 55% of those in the first generation were unskilled, this fell to just under 10% for the second generation and to 3% for the third generation.   Eastern European immigrants to the USA as a group [average], had, by 1980, higher earnings than other white Americans, and also had more years of [education].   In part this reflected their being more urbanized and slightly older.   Never the less, this also represented dramatic changes over the generations.   While just 22% of men from Eastern Europe who were born from 1905 to 1914 reached professional, technical, or managerial occupations, nearly 45% of those born between 1935 [and] 1944 did so.   30% of all Eastern European men of all ages, living in the USA, were in managerial and professional specialties in 1980, ranging from 20% among Slovaks to 48% among Russians.   Among women, 25% were in these occupations, ranting from 18% among Slovaks to 37% among Russians." --- Thomas Sowell 1998 _Conquests and Cultures_ pp240-241 (citing Paul Robert Magocsi 1980 "Carpatho-Rusyn" in Stephan Thernstom et al. _Harvard Encyclopedia of American Ethnic Groups_ pg203; US commission on civil rights 1986 _The Economic Status of Americans of Southern and Eastern European Ancestry_ pp25-27,31-37)
