Robots are coming for your job. That might not be bad news
The problem with automation isn’t technology. The problem is capitalism. // [ Deflationary pressure, 3bn people in developing world and frontier markets unemployed, waiting to join workforce. ] [ who buys the gadgets and widgets when half the world is unemployed ] // This time, as Martin Ford argues in Rise of The Robots, education and upscaling won’t help us. There will simply be fewer jobs to go around, as everything from accountancy to journalism will be done faster, cheaper and more efficiently by machines. The result, as Jerry Kaplan agrees in Humans Need Not Apply, is that billions will be left destitute – unless we radically rethink our way of keeping people fed.

Amazon a cyber-sweatshop? SARAH LACY praised the New York Times reporting on Amazon: "When you freak out the tech world, you're a powerful news organization." // "brutally efficient" 'white and blue collar jobs being exposed to the same treatment manual work and service sector jobs have been treated by competition and globalisation (flat and borderless world), for the last +30 years. "it's what you don't say and how it gets interpreted down the line." // Investigative Journalism! NYT (paper), a institution, a stalwart of investigative journalism, reporting, holding companies and people accountable, .... same along the line of bit.ly/1NRsG5N - One overlooked theme emerging from the Times’s Amazon story is the power of the paper itself. // this story underlines, is a data point in time, you can look back on. and say the world went this way such and such // competing on price is the easiest thing to do! the first thing in reach! its about the hard things that actually leverage/multiplier
