“I grow weary of commentators making the assertion – with little evidence or backup, aside from the comments of like-mined others – that automation of work will not lead to a decrease in jobs. The latest is Christopher Mims who seems to think robots will increase wealth in the countries adopting them.”
I am right with him. Been saying it a long time. All that garbage about all the jobs that emerged form the industrial revolution … blah blah. It is different. The problem is that nobody is coming out and publically saying it - because the truth will set off an hysteria throughout society.
But if we did accept that it is different - we could pull our heads out of the ground and plan … strategically … and do something about it. Ot just have another world war … and cull a ‘few’ million.

Nothing less than putting people back into the center of ‘The Business Equation’.
People First - All Else Follows. It’s a simple rule, but not well understood - much less followed. Our goal is to explore how people have increasingly taken a back seat in society as we have allowed unfettered and unelected power to ‘corporates’.
What can people and businesses do to mitigate the downside? I choose ‘and’ because if business does not understand the importance of People First and include that thinking in their strategies, they too will be run over by the unfettered power of the ‘megacorps’.
People First lays the groundwork for people both inside and outside of business to understand how they can better work and engage to create a ‘People First World’.
