less Rich , more money

I’m going to go further on the answer I gave to Jonas. While I was thinking of what we would do with the time we had left. I realized that in the technological future only people who can buy this technology or find a high Job will earn a lot of money. Al the rest will have to stride to get what they want. So I come up with this small article.

In this article they say how it comes that the gap between rich and poor is widening and why is will still increase. One of them is technology. The low-skilled workers are being replaced by machines. and through the rise of telecommunication the same job can be done with less money in other countries. So the labor-costs are decreasing. On the other hand high skilled workers get all the profits out of the technology. And the rich people invest in those technologies and only through investing you can really make money.

Because we are looking in the far future it will be a great social problem to make this Gap as small as possible. it will be a fight for every country to get as much as rich people on there land and still give a lot of social benefits to the poor.

That makes you think if there always will be countries who live in poor conditions. Now we are giving charity to a lot of African countries to help them. and this is ethical also the best to do. but what will happen if they finally going to the industrial revolution and the technological revolution. Will it be that every country will be almost the same? will only the countries with great natural sources be rich? or could it be that in 200 years we will need the help of congo?

In other words how would the world be divided in 200 years if we look to the percent rich and poor of every country and the money of every country?

    Also an interesting, recent article that showed up yesterday: http://www.express.be/business/nl/economy/50-van-de-bestaande-beroepen-verdwijnt-tegen-2030/209139.htm
    This article confirms the intention of your blog. It says that automation and robotics, combining with the growing capabilities of artificial intelligence,will ensure that almost 50% of the existing professions will disappear by 2030. Most jobs will disappear in the processing industry, the customer service and in the middle management.
    As this article confirms my opinion, more people will look for something else such as police work or fireman to become satisfied with the work they do. It is clear that people rather choose for more satisfaction, happiness and the meaning of work than the financial aspect.

    Well I think that over 200 years the world will be ruled by the countries that has the most capital and employments. These aspects will be the most important and rarest thing in the world.

    But what do you think what is going to happen with eductions where the work can be replaced by machines? Students will have the intention to study something that is related with a well paid job and lots of employments. What will happen with the professors of the University?

    During the workshops of ‘beyond engineering’ in the last year of my bachelor studies we talked about creative destruction. Creative destruction is described by “the process of industrial mutation that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.” Maybe in one way this can be seen alike for some job opportunities, while some jobs fade away because of new technologies it can also provide new jobs.

    Isn’t it that these new technologies give a boost to the economy? We may lose jobs where automation happens but because of the boost it gives, it could also work as a trickle-down effect. If the economy booms also sectors profit also the sectors that need low-skilled personnel.

    I also found an interesting article (in dutch) about low-skilled people that will still find jobs:

      My opinion is that indeed technology boosts the economy of that land. But i think it’s very difficult that for every machine that a men’s job intakes, finding a new one. especially if we look in infinity.
