Bitter Pill to Swallow

It seems that yet another group has come to the conclusion that the best way to keep your programming job is to be a business person. Frankly, I wonder if it isn't a mixed message to be lamenting about the decline of the technical base in America while allowing massive competition from foreign sources and sending the message that the core skill set is not the thing that will get you a job. It is almost as if how well you speak is more important than how well you program. Or perhaps it's just easier for a business major to access.
