Mon commentaire sur “L’économie interconnectée se heurte aux lois du passé”

Ci-dessous mon commentaire déposé sur ce billet: L’économie interconnectée se heurte aux lois du passé

Peut-être est-ce aussi une bonne chose que les lois soient des gardes fous et nous imposent le temps d’une petite réflexion dans un monde ou tout va si vite maintenant. Cette soi-disant “Sharing economy” qui semble faire des miracles est aussi en train de créer un certains nombres d’emplois très précaires…
Qu’on se le dise…

Je me méfie de ces ayatollah de la libéralisation qui ne semble pas plus réfléchir que cela aux conséquences de ces innovations…

On techno-replacement job Google’s Eric Schmidt predicts the disappearance of the internet

He [Eric Schmidt] additionally touched on the subject of techno-replacement, and the idea that we may all lose our current jobs to machines as computers continue to improve. Schmidt dismissed the concept, and said that instead technology will create new job categories—with 7 out of every 8 being non-technology roles, which will nonetheless be benefited by technology.

“That somehow no one is going to have a job in the world, and it’s just going to be the Davos elite who is going to have a good time and everyone else is going to be rioting is completely false,” he said.

Why I am blogging this? I have always thought that technology would benefit to everyone and while removing some jobs it would also create some in other areas. I am now really wondering and would love some data driven analysis on that aspect but the more I look at it the more I see non-technology jobs disappearring and I think the impact of technology on the job market is much worse that I had originally anticipated. All together that would be yet another argument for another model of society, a society where one does not necessarily have to work to actually live (well enough).
I might not be that far off if Eric Schmidt himself feels the need to talk about that subject
