If Schools Don't Change, Robots Will Bring On a 'Permanent Underclass': Report | Motherboard
via http://www.reddit.com/r/Futurology/comments/2ct2xs/if_schools_dont_change_robots_will_bring_on_a/ The respondents overwhelmingly agree that this lovely future where robots do the work and humans design the robots and everyone has leisure time and lots of money only exists in a fantasy future where the school systems pump out a shitload of Elon Musks and Sergey Brins—or, at the very least, people who can reliably work at the companies those guys own. [...] only the best-educated humans will compete with machines [...] and education systems [around the world] are still sitting students in rows & columns, teaching them to keep quiet and memorize what is told to them, preparing them for life in a 20th century factory.” // Rise of Service Jobs (dominance) in USA, even post-GFC. // ADD: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-leadership/wp/2014/08/07/are-robots-coming-for-your-job/

Wachstum schwach wegen Innovationen und Investitionen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Währungsmanager stecken in einer unkomfortablen Lage: Die EZB erreicht das Ende ihrer Handlungsfähigkeit. Die kurzfristigen Zinsen hat sie bereits auf knapp über Null gesenkt, Einlagen bei der EZB werden sogar mit einer Strafgebühr geahndet. Mit ihrem neuen Programm zur zweckgebundenen Liquiditätsvergabe greift sie auch noch direkt ins Kreditgeschäft der Geschäftsbanken ein. Trotzdem erholt sich die Wirtschaft nur äußerst schleppend - mit dem Ausnahmefall DE. [...] Offenkundig befinden wir uns auf einem Abstellgleis der kapitalistischen Entwicklung. Derzeit ist die These von der "säkularen Stagnation" populär, von mehreren Dekaden mit niedrigem Wachstum, die vor uns liegen. Dazu scheinen die ultraniedrigen Zinsen in der EU, den USA und Japan zu passen. Aus diesem Blickwinkel zeigen langfristige Sätze nahe Null an, dass es kaum noch sinnvolle Investitionsmöglichkeiten gibt - dass zu wenige Unternehmen existieren, die ordentliche Renditen versprechen.

Zinsentscheid der EZB: Draghi plant Minus vor Zinssatz - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schon immer ließ sich das Ende eines Systems besonders schwer erkennen, wenn man Teil des Systems ist. Im Jahre sieben nach Ausbruch der Finanzkrise ist es langsam Zeit für die Frage: Was, wenn die vermeintliche Ausnahme in Wahrheit die Regel ist? Wenn es sich bei der Kombination aus niedrigen Zinsen, niedrigem Wachstum und niedriger Inflation, die weite Teile Europa seit 2008 ebenso im Griff hält wie die USA und Japan, um die neue Normalität handelt? Wenn das seit Jahrzehnten praktizierte westliche Wirtschaftsmodell, sich immer niedrigere Wachstumsraten mit immer höheren Staatsschulden zu erkaufen, an seinem Schlusspunkt angelangt ist? +++ http://bit.ly/SxhnZq "Nicht Europa ist am Ende - sondern der Kapitalismus, so wie wir ihn kennen. [...] Im angelsächsischen Finanzkapitalismus wachsen die Vermögen der Reichen und stagnieren die Einkommen der anderen." [...] [EU Election Result is a vote] gegen das ungerechte Wirtschaftssystem, das ihre Lebensgrundlage gefährdet.

oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith: The Changing Nature of Middle Class Work
The economy is changing in structural ways that affect not just the job market but the nature of work itself. If we ask, what is work?, the conventional answer is tasks that somebody will pay us to do. This is true, but it doesn't address why someone is willing to pay us. The answer is to create value. ... [ Skills, not Expertise. ] ...... As technology's ability to replace costly human labor moves from the factory floor to the service sector, the nature of middle class work is changing. [ IBM's company wide Pivot over +10 years from HW to Services and Software Company. With the accompanying downsizing. ] ... Jobs that can be learned in a few hours are prone to being replaced by machines. [...] The protected sectors beset by soaring costs (healthcare, higher education, major weaponry programs, finance, etc.) will undergo the creative destruction of technology-based productivity gains for the reason that they are already unaffordable, not just to households but to the nation.

Why Americans Are Moving Less: New Jobs Aren't Worth It - Richard Florida - The Atlantic Cities
[symptom of the working poor and squeezed middle class and wage stagnation || http://youtu.be/_k9q8rBfRVY + http://youtu.be/akVL7QY0S8A + http://youtu.be/nIimu0LF4JA + http://youtu.be/BOMoC0_m5pQ // Americans are moving less—and not as far—because it's not nearly as worthwhile economically. Most moves are local, from neighborhood to neighborhood in the same city or county, and are largely driven by seeking better housing or more proximity to family and friends. But long-distance moves between states are different. These interstate moves are typically driven by those seeking better job opportunities. Since the 1980s, neither the job opportunities nor the potential for better wages have made such moves worth it, according to the study. It finds that by 2013 the rate of interstate relocations had fallen 51 percent below its 1948 to 1971 average levels, the peak years for such longer-distance moves.
