I think the thing is that architects have become too many. Earnings were sound once (I remember reading an Architectural Record of the late 60's or early 70's where the profession stood firmly against minimum fees) ... yet the thing is that with the growing numbers fees and salaries have gone down to the extent that many in reality reckon actively or passively the exercise of the profession at hand it is no more worth the effort: lots of professions with huge LESS training are earning far more, this just because being in tune with the times.
Solution? Times never repeat exactly, and architecture as a privileged profession may have (for most) dissapeared.
On the other hand, the diminished earnings will correct along time the services delivered, for one can do dumping only as long as the stored resources last. From then on, society either pay what architecture deserves, or there's no more architecture.
