Jobs won’t entirely disappear; many will simply be redefined. But people will likely lack new skillsets required for new roles and be out of work anyway
According to a 2013 report from Oxford academics, 47% of workers in America have jobs at high risk of potential automation.

Monday 26 June 2017

The robots are coming, the robots are coming!

Regular reports warn us that an automation apocalypse is nigh. In January, a McKinsey & Company study found that about 30% of tasks in 60% of occupations could be computerized and last year, the Bank of England’s chief economist said that 80m US and 15m UK jobs might be taken over by robots.

Of course, not all jobs are created equally. In 2013, a highly cited study by Oxford University academics called The Future of Employment examined 702 common occupations and found that some jobs – telemarketers, tax preparers and sports referees – are at more risk than others including recreational psychologists, dentists and physicians.

In the past, reports of the death of human jobs have often been greatly exaggerated, and technology has created a lot more jobs than it has wiped out. It’s called the “Luddite Fallacy”, in reference to the 19th century group of textile workers who smashed the new weaving machinery that made their skills redundant. Further, in the last 60 years automation has only eliminated one occupation: elevator operators.

While there have been optimistic predictions that new technology would increase prosperity and lower drudgery, very few of us are working the 15-hour work week that, in 1930, the economist John Maynard Keynes predicted would be the norm for his grandkids. If anything, we’re working 15-hour days.

It is a matter of fact.
Just looking in our life time at the changes introduced by technology and automation, makes it wonder how we managed so far.
Science advances make possible for everybody on the planet to live a decent, or at least a substantially better life, yet these enormous wealth is not shared and ends up in deleterious pursuits or buried in bank volts and remains underutilised.

The only way to prepare for a future, indeed to have a future, is to take it back.



To eliminate unemployment one needs only to eliminate the unemployed
