We Simply Don't Need Many Humans Working
Computers are now smarter than people on Jeopardy
Computers/Networks are replacing more and more human functions everyday saving tremendous amounts of natural resources and the need for real estate. Email replacing paper mail, Digital delivery of movies replacing video stores and plastic DVDs, Kindle replacing paper books and book stores, etc.....
Heck, with computers controlling the majority of trading in the stock market, humans are playing a lesser and lesser role each day in the stock market my fellow Fools. You think the current value of the stock market has anything to do with human research and valuations?
This is a very CONVULSIVE issue, especially for Americans who were the workers of the Industrial Age and built their entire lives around an industrial economy......and now playing a smaller and smaller role everyday as Wall Street outsources many of our technical capacity, knowledge, and jobs and our Industrial Economy is not competitive with more labor efficient Asian markets.
The transiton from the Industrial Age to the Digital Age will be very RADICAL....most of what functions in the Industrial Age has little value in the Digital Age....
And right now, everyone is trying to hold on to their Industrial Age wealth and power as the transition moves forward.....in many instances, by fraud and illegal means, even if it requires changing the law for a select few. We kept the Industrial Age going by levering up housing, private equity funds, commerical real estate, and government entities....now it appears we are ready to proceed forward.
As the world is wakes up.....and we are setting up for a clash between the Ages....how this will play out is anyone's guess......but in the end it will be a www.udderworld.com
