This is a quick summary of previous thoughts.
Whatever we do with technology, creating jobs and a better quality of life, we need solutions that deal simultaneously with the secondary consequences of our proposed solutions for the following
- climate warming
population and migration
weaponization of society
increased economic activity motivates shifting to robots
As I see it now there are four major sectors of employment (with lots extra in the interstices) toward which the large majority of the population will need to move ..
- Greening everything (remediation, economy, aesthetics, species support)
- Caring for all those hurt by the transition (say half the population will need care of many kinds)
- Management of 1 and 2.
- Education and the arts.(to guide the spirit and skills of the management and to provide the vision)
All are tech dependent, lots to do.
