Looking for ways to handle the transition to a digital economy Robots, artificial intelligence, and driverless cars are no longer things of the distant future. They are with us today and will become increasingly common in coming years, along with virtual reality and digital personal assistants. As these tools advance deeper into everyday use, they raise the question--how will they transform society, the economy, and politics? If companies need fewer workers due to automation and robotics, what happens to those who once held those jobs and don't have the skills for new jobs? And since many social benefits are delivered through jobs, how are people outside the workforce for a lengthy period of time going to earn a living and get health care and social benefits? Looking past today's headlines, political scientist and cultural observer Darrell M. West argues that society needs to rethink the concept of jobs, reconfigure the social contract, move toward a system of lifetime learning, and develop a new kind of politics that can deal with economic dislocations. With the U.S. governance system in shambles because of political polarization and hyper-partisanship, dealing creatively with the transition to a fully digital economy will vex political leaders and complicate the adoption of remedies that could ease the transition pain. It is imperative that we make major adjustments in how we think about work and the social contract in order to prevent society from spiraling out of control. This book presents a number of proposals to help people deal with the transition from an industrial to a digital economy. We must broaden the concept of employment to include volunteering and parenting and pay greater attention to the opportunities for leisure time. New forms of identity will be possible when the "job" no longer defines people's sense of personal meaning, and they engage in a broader range of activities. Workers will need help throughout their lifetimes to acquire new skills and develop new job capabilities. Political reforms will be necessary to reduce polarization and restore civility so there can be open and healthy debate about where responsibility lies for economic well-being. This book is an important contribution to a discussion about tomorrow--one that needs to take place today.… (mais)

Imagine the scene: It's 2025 and a school student is visiting their careers adviser.

Student: Hey there, so do you have any advice for me in choosing a career?
Adviser: Well, we've monitored your performance over the last 13 years of schooling, your interests and abilities and used our software to predict which roles you would be best suited to.
Student: Ok, so whats the result?
Adviser: We are terribly sorry, but it seems you are what is commonly called a 'spare'
Student: Umm..a spare?
Adviser: Yes, a spare, or spare part. There is simply no job you can do that cannot be done better, cheaper and more reliably by a robot. Economically, you are unemployable, for ever.
Student: Oh. I'm somewhat disappointed.
Adviser: If it makes you feel any better, its completely normal. 60% of all students are spares, and we expect that percentage to rise to 80% over the next decade as the robots are improved.
Student: So what next?
Adviser: Have you considered prostitution? Its legal now and their is still a premium for human participants?

I cant wait for driver-less cars!
I can go to sleep on my way to work!
Make breakfast!
Make babies!

Could we programme these evil machines to not be evil? Maybe get them to come up with some good solutions to all these problems? Maybe they could be our saviours, if we weren't so negative?
Anyhow, I think it's time the World Government confiscated all the land and rented it all back. We simply have to stop using work, salary, pay or money (at all) and become a robot-backed, egalitarian leisure economy. Of course, The working class machines will have to work longer hours for inferior batteries.

But it may take a revolution or three.

All civilisations peak and then fall right? Anyone feeling peaky?
