Why Everyone Must Get Ready For The 4th Industrial Revolution
For example, as automation increases, computers and machines will replace workers across a vast spectrum of industries, from drivers to accountants and estate agents to insurance agents. By one estimate, as many as 47 percent of U.S. jobs are at risk from automation. Many experts suggest that the fourth industrial revolution will benefit the rich much more than the poor, especially as low-skill, low-wage jobs disappear in favor of automation.

But this isn’t new. Historically, industrial revolutions have always begun with greater inequality followed by periods of political and institutional change. The industrial revolution that began at the beginning of the 19th century originally led to a huge polarization of wealth and power, before being followed by nearly 100 years of change including the spread of democracy, trade unions, progressive taxation and the development of social safety nets.

Will Advances in Technology Create a Jobless Future? | MIT Technology Review
Who Will Own the Robots? - We’re in the midst of a jobs crisis, and rapid advances in AI and other technologies may be one culprit. How can we get better at sharing the wealth that technology creates? // BY MARTIN FORD - The Great Divide: Unequal Societies and What We Can Do About Them BY JOSEPH E. STIGLITZ &! Inequality: What Can Be Done? BY ANTHONY B. ATKINSON &! The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies BY ERIK BRYNJOLFSSON AND ANDREW MCAFEE // &! Paul Krugman - “A lot of what’s happening [in income inequality] is not just the gods of technology telling us what must happen but is in fact [due to] social constructs that could be different.” - gov policy, corporate policy (ie 4-day work week and 6-hour days because productivity and profit margin do allow for that, and more brings diminished returns etc etc but will that go down well with Wall Street?)

Empire of the geeks | The Economist
Silicon Valley should be celebrated. But its insularity risks a backlash [...] Critics are often from industries wanting to protect their privileges; the geeks’ aggressive behaviour is sometimes part of the creative destruction that leads to progress. But that is not the only source of anger. Silicon Valley also dominates markets, sucks out the value contained in personal data, and erects business models that make money partly by avoiding taxes. There is a risk that global consumers will feel exploited and that the effects of a shrinking tax base will infuriate voters. If the perception takes root that enormous profits from exploiting data and avoiding taxes are crystallised in the fortunes of a few people living on a patch of ground near San Francisco, then there will be a backlash." // recent emergence of marketplace for X and gig platform for X - 1099 Economy etc etc, making money with our data - Facebook.

Digitale Revolution: Die Deutsche Wirtschaft ist zu zufrieden - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Skepsis ist angebracht. Die Digitalisierung ist dabei, das Leben umzuwälzen. Wie die Wirtschaft funktioniert, womit wir unseren Lebensunterhalt verdienen, wie wir zusammenleben, wie wir denken, lernen und fühlen - all das ist einem epochalen Wandel unterworfen. Wer die Folgen dieser Zeitenwende vor lauter Selbstzufriedenheit unterschätzt, lebt gefährlich. Eine Studie der Oxforder Forscher Carl Benedikt Frey und Michael Osborne kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass durch die digitale Revolution 47 Prozent der heutigen US-Arbeitsplätze gefährdet sind; in anderen westlichen Ländern dürften die Dimensionen ähnlich sein. [...] Denn die Digitalisierung führt bei vielen Gütern zu einem rapiden Preisverfall. Zwischen 2010 und 2014 wurden Mobilcomputer in Deutschland um 40 Prozent billiger, IT-Dienstleistungen um zwölf Prozent, Mobiltelefonieren immerhin um neun Prozent, wie das Statistische Bundesamt vorrechnet.
