I think this whole Sherpa argument has no correct answer.

Yes, they are taken advantage in some respects and totally ignored (Without looking it up, who was Sir Hillary's sherpa?) But without that industry they would still be where they were in 1950.

The only reason I even know the answer to 'Who was the first Sherpa?', is that I went to college with Tenzing Norgay's son in Northern Wis. An accomplishment that would have been impossible Pre-Expeditions.

So in the true capitalist spirit I recommend his book.
