Paul Mason: what they aren't telling you about work - YouTube
hollowing out // automation - vs - skill & problem solving (figuring out how to automate/put something together/create new) - vs - end of the chain work (low end, manual, repetitive, service...) // within the next 20 years, 47% of jobs in developed world could be replaced by robots/automation/machines // Future of Work is about problem solving, not putting (end of the chain) things together. figuring out the new, making the new, making something better, more efficient, faster, better quality, ... // and as it stands now, those who reap the rewards will be few. and gov policy, ie tax evasion, tax avoidance, tax code, fairness, --- gains have to be shared.

Policymakers and leaders often treat Wicked problems as though they were Tame or Critical (and sometimes vice versa)

Wicked problems cannot be treated like Tame or Critical problems. By their very nature these problems – whether it be obesity, issues of mental health or anti-social behaviour – are not caused by a single factor but rather a complex web of drivers; social, economic and environmental. Attempting to solve them with a single, discreet intervention is misguided and likely to be counterproductive.

Likewise, occasionally policymakers decide to treat Wicked problems as though they are a Crisis. The reason why our leaders choose to react to problems with inappropriate responses is partly because they need to be seen as courageous and as having a strong handle on the problem.

Wicked problems require ‘Clumsy’ rather than ‘Elegant’ solutions that combine different ‘cultural understandings’
