Preparing for Survival in a Post-Employment 'ARAI' World


We have to brace ourselves for a scenario in which ever-increasing numbers of people will, before long, find themselves in post-employment circumstances without ever having actually been employed. That is what will happen if they are qualified only for jobs that are going to be entirely handed over to Advanced Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, or "ARAI," technology (especially if more conventional, less-intelligent "automation" is also conceptually tucked in under the ARAI umbrella, reframed as "Automation, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence").

What you will learn in this eBook

Reverse Migration to Robo-Developing Countries

In one of the nearly worst-case scenarios, in which not only are new millions permanently non-employed, but also without any income or other survival supports, one way out of that nightmare may beckon: reverse migration, i.e., becoming an expat. Because it is likely that the ARAI Revolution will not occur simultaneously all over the world, any lags may be exploitable by workers who have the skills required to create the revolution in a lagging foreign country or region, rather than helplessly become victims of it by staying home.

Technological revolutionary lags certainly characterized the Industrial Revolution, which took full generations to spread from its epicenter, England, to various countries in continental Europe, not to mention the much slower march into Japan, Russia, China, India, the agrarian Confederacy of the South, and to the Southern Hemisphere.
