The Digital Age Will Be Very Positive



June 25, 2010 – Comments (4)

1.  We will move into much greener nuclear driven power and away from highly polluting carbon fuels.  Buffett recently signed a deal with Russia and Gates with Japan to get the ball rolling in a big way.  Power will be very cheap and available to all in unlimited quanities.

2.  Information and knowledge will be the drivers of innovation and the internet will be the conduit to spread it around the world breaking down barriers and divisions among people.

3.  Food will be able to be produced much more efficiently and cheaper as new areas begin to be cultivated...especially in relative untapped Africa.

4.  The need for man's labor will decrease as many functions currently done by humans will be computerized or machine driven.

5.  All of humanity will have access to a high education as the more and more schools transfer online and worldwide.

6.  The nature of money will change from that which one hoards to that which is used to advance productivity and production.

7.  A healthy lifestyle will become central because the allocation of healthcare will be spread around the world.

8.  People will become more community focused as the ability to consume and accumulate material goods will deminish in importance.

9.  More and more businesses like and internet retailers and distributors will replace carbon consuming brick and morter operations.

10.  International conflict as we know it will come to an end after world barriers break down and a single order and single currency develops.

1. Maybe, except for the last sentence which is false.

2. Maybe.

3. Probably not. Agriculture in africa is harder than in a lot of the rest of the world.

4. Some things, but a plumbing robot is a long ways off.

5. Probably less online than you think.

6. Nope.

7. Nope.

8. Nope. Less community focused as the net leads to increasing social isolation.

9. Talking your book, dude.

10. Nope.

Totally concur, chk

 Nuclear?  We won't make it that long for the plants to be built.

Some of your other critics call you to produce, good idea. Learn to grow FOOD and locate water.

Learn to MINE, you know, physically mine...not mining the internet people to look at ads with some BS like   

I expected more.

Good Luck and May Your Dow Never Jones.

Ok, I did REC it anyway, for your sand

but for real, we are not heading to a digital world. We are returning to an agrarian lie...we may still have the internet, given reliable power, but transportation will be not an individualized thing, drayage will be at a premium price, and the cities will be dangerous.

I look forward to a world where the measure of a man is what he can produce, not a world where we exalt those who live off of the buying and selling of others.

Good Luck and May Your Dow Never Jones.

My brother in law can farm more acres than any single man ever could dream with his GPS assisted John Deere.....pretty soon even he won't even be in it when it is operating.

Food is not an issue....we can currently produce more than enough to feed the world....and if it was...growing it wouldn't help because it would belong to the man with the biggest guns.

The only reason Africa is not producing more crops is political....when I was young my I lived in Africa as my father was a diplomat with the UN...let's leave it at that.

As far as nuclear and where it is going...may I suggest you read the writings of Charlie Munger, Mr. Buffett's guess he knows a bit more than most fools on the issue.

Plumbing is going robots required. is simply going where the digital age will and on 24/7....whether it is talking a book or not is not relevant to the direction.

As far as better be healthy because at least 2/3 of the hospitals presently open will be closed within a few years.

Already over half the nation is not working....expect that number to grow much more.
