    "A story in the New York Times told about two Philips Electronics plant, one in China where hundreds of workers assemble electric shavers by hand, and the other in the Netherlands, where 128 robots do the same work, overseen by a work force only one-tenth as big as the one in China. The same automation is transforming not only manufacturing but distribution, with robots doing the work that forklift drivers once did.

    "This is the future," the Times said. "A new wave of robots, far more adept than those now commonly used by automakers and other heavy manufacturers, are replacing workers around the world in both manufacturing and distribution."

    The Times cited one robotic system that cost $250,000 and replaced two machine operators, each earning $50,000 per years. Thus, the robots paid for themselves in two and a half years: over their 15-year lifespan, they saved the company $1.25 million in base wages, plus another $2.25 million in benefits and increased productivity." .......
