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?
