Look, origanizations are cutting jobs in the face of government budget cuts and a slowing economy. This can only mean that in a few years no one will have a job!

Not no one...just most.

As government cuts...organizations will cut...which will lead to lower taxes causing even more government cuts leading to more organizational cuts....leading to even lower taxes.....

That is why WAR is almost a certainty at this point without will be the easiest way to keep the sheep busy.....around the world.

Mexican officials to patrol Staten Island following attacks...

FBI defends guidelines for domestic surveillance...

The best part about the domestic surveillance is it is catching Americans trying to hide money that most transfers are digital and we have reciprocal relationships with banks and financial instutitions worldwide.....even if people think their money is ain' me on this one;)

This doesn't sound like the Digital Age, it sounds like the Stone Age. Without an economy, why replace human jobs with machines? There will be no demand.

You are such a simple thinker...there is always demand...just look in Africa at all the people starving for food and don't think there is demand?

The question is whether there will be supply and a means to access that supply.

In War....the rules of economics change......the same applies to the Digital Age.......most people can or choose to only think based on their personal is why people in Europe couldn't believe that Black Swans existed in other parts of the world....they had never seen them before so they chose to believe they didn't exist.....

Alstrynomics doesn't limit forecasts to that which is also factors the probable and extrapolates the factual data to likely conclusions....why do you think I was blogging all last year about the government crash when everyone was focused on a recovery?

Now War is the most likely outcome based on current facts and patterns...and if my forecast is right, this will be the biggest war in human history resulting in the most casualties.....unless a new direction is taken....which seems very unlikely at this juncture.

Most teachers will not be needed anymore? You base that conclusion because of the rise of online classes and layoffs due to budget constraints? That's pretty specious reasoning. It's like saying, since there are problems with the economy, the whole thing is going down in flames. Oh, I guess that's what you're always saying.

As I said, Alstry, you're talking about the Stone Age, which is where we'll be if you are correct. Your constant use of the phrase Digital Age is silly given what you predict to happen.

It is not going down in flames, it is advancing....whether you like it or not....

Email and digital delivery of documents will soon end the need for OVER 600,000 postal workers in America...and millions worldwide.

People seem to equate jobs with prosperity...or money with prosperity....these are Industrial Age the Digital Age...Knowledge, and the ability to PRACTICALLY apply it will be wealth.....

NOT real estate, stocks, bonds, money, gold or similar Industrial Age concepts or items......

Right now the US government can access instantly practically any account in the world and identify the owner within minutes...there are millions of Americans who think they have successfully concealed their wealth....they are mistaken...and soon they are likely to find out it is a costly mistake in the Digital Age...

where practically everything is reduced to a zero or one.

Millions of new jobs will be created due to the need for those who have the skills to create electronic documents, staff large data centers, build semiconductors, mine the ore and process the plastics needed to build computer components. Faster communication infrastructures will have to be built, and then rebuilt as technology progresses. Universities and companies will be staffed with people creating new algorithms to make computing more efficient. Data centers also need janitors, plumbers, electricians, architects, construction workers. The e-mail and document creation software companies will need people to staff call centers to answer tech support questions. These companies will need salesman to sell their products. Computer hardware will have to be shipped. Trucks, trains, and ships will have to be built for this purpose. Truckers, engineers, and captains will all want to purchase food, water, electricity, art, carpets, windows, and lots of other goods. Yes, this is clearly the end of the world.


Will mass unemployment spiral out of control brining global war and the Stone Age, or will we progress into the real Digital Age, where technology is used to enhance human productivity? For example, when the tractor was invented and we were able to feed hundreds of millions more people than before. And those field laborers found new jobs in the Industrial Age economy fixing tractors, mining metal, building engines and extracting oil.

You don't need salesman in an online world...just ask any drug rep....

2/3 of architects are unemployed as the need for buildings is greatly deminished in a digital world....

Computer hardware will be a fraction of the current size and the need for shipping will evaporate compared to current loads...

Stop dreaming and start thinking...that is where wealth will reside.

And as far as money....the government will give it to you as it will own everything...including you and your children...just like it owns 40,000,000 food stamp recipients, 50,000,000 social security recipients, 25,000,000 government workers and their families, and over 15,000,000 health care workers and their families.....

It will not be too long before government owns ALL of the means of production as well...

it already owns most of the home mortgages...and much of the toxic the only thing left to do is hard is this for you to see?  Are you vision impaired?

Oh let's not forget the over 15,000,000 unemployment recipients and their families too!

Once you add it up, after factoring in all the consumers that depend on government for a check...even if you don't depend on governement is very likely you depend on the spending of those that do......

Welcome to the Digital Age...where soon government will own practically everything...including you.

You seem to be asserting that we are heading for a totalitarian state where the government owns everything, and knows everything. In that world, I doubt knowledge will be worth very much. Knowledge will be the enemy, and it will be suppressed, unless I use my knowledge to suppress others. I guess I’ll have to get over my Industrial Age ethical constraints too.

As King George III of England learned, not all of his American subjects behaved like sheep when he tried to clamp the screws on.

What happens to your Digital Age when the electrical power grids are shut down by gun-toting patriots determined not to be subjugated by a cadre of computer geeks.

Knowledge is Power only applies when your head is still attached to the rest of your body.

Already OVER 200,000,000 Americans, including dependents, depend on government directly or indirectly for their monthly security, medicare/aid, unemployment, government workers, healthcare workers, etc......

The other 100,000,000 million depend on the above 200,000,000 spending for their livlihoods....

It is a little late now....government already owns just don't know it yet.....they can flip the switch in an instant...but expect a MAJOR war to distract you in the process.

But any idiot could have seen it coming once we bailed out Wall Street and Washington and not mainstreet.......the game was over then and so few even cared.....

No one said anything when we gave bankers trillions and the people nothing...

When bankers raised interest rates on debt but lowered them on savings...AFTER you bailed them out!

Frankly, I think Alstrynomics is as much a misnomer as your Digital Age. Orwellonomics woul dprobably be accurate, but I prefer the sound of Huxleynomics. I can steal the ideas of those who came before me too.

You seem to have one of the same problems as Mr. Beck, and that is consistancy. In one sentence, you say we're all doomed because the government is running out of money so there will be no jobs, and in the next you say the government owns us all.

Cities, counties and states are running out of money...

States face more service cuts in 2011

Which incidently employ the vast majority of government workers.  The Federal Government, it can never run out of prints money and can make money worthless....which is another way it can own you.

I guess my assumption that you could distinguish this subtle but obvious fact confirms you are not much more than a sheep...but don't let that disturb you....most CAPS players are the same.
