    Didn't know Scandinavia was a country? Thought it was a group of countries...

    In all of the models where there is an abundance of work...

    Now go and find a model that works on 90% unemployment with automation building nearly everything and AI controlling sentiment in the financial markets rather than stupid human fear or yet another royal baby.

    The choices open to the people that get to go to Davos are:

    a) Find away to give out free money so normal people can feed themselves
    b) Retire to a tiny island and let the rest of the human race kill each other in some kind of mad max dystopia
    c) Mix of both

    We have seen that business is more than satisfied to sack its workers and move work overseas when theres a quick buck.
    India are already in the process of sacking thousands of workers in the IT industry as automation improves productivity.

    All the signs are pointing to the fact that we have a vastly over populated planet.

    While the tin hat doom monkeys might look a bit dumb hiding in the hills of Virginia, the world stage is subtilely moving to a point where we don't need that many humans to do the work.

    The fact that guys like Bill Gates and other world visionaries are openly talking about automation and AI means they have already figured out that there is a big change coming have some ideas about it and are starting to drip feed it down into the rest of us.

    While it sadly is still a way off, automation will allow humans to spend more effort finding and colonising a second home so Earth isn't over stressed and ruined by us.

    Like what happened during the total war phase of WWII, the population will be able to concentrate on producing space ships and all that goes with it to get us to Mars and way beyond, to Earth 2.

    In the meantime, the current problems need addressing. The billionaires with visions can talk but we need action, not ever distant dreams. I'm still waiting for most of the stuff promised to us on Tomorrow's World.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
