Ivan Latti Job reversal story

This is probably why every nation with a differentiated economy feels itself better off with its own currency. And why population control remains a global issue only. For wherever production sinks, reproduction rises. Every nation that is overproducing citizens requires support from its neighbors; aggressively or submissively. And draws the global issues dialogue at the UN and similar talk shops down to ineffectual levels.

Merinda Kamfer Very clear that def of 'high skilled' is changing

The definition of 'highly skilled' in 2012 might be very different of what 'highly skilled' will be defined as in 2017 / 2030.
the challnege is to be able to define and ensure that we shape a workforce of the future to be in order to answer to the emand of the 'highly skilled' of the future

Neil Jacobsohn RE: Very clear that def of 'high skilled' ...

Absolutely right. And how the education system of today is failing the next generation. We're teaching completely the wrong things, in the wrong way.

Doug Vining First reverse the thinking

It seems that education and training is the first priority, before jobs start flowing back to the west. College graduates that are unemployable now - how much worse will it be in 2017? Perhaps a great paradigm shift is needed in society and government, before this scenario starts to emerge.

On the other hand, perhaps that is the catalyst needed to create an explosion of entrepreneurship and innovation!

Neil Jacobsohn New manufacturing technologies bring jobs back to the West

Is the shift of manufacturing to the East, and China in particular, irreversible? Wage pressure inside China is causing problems for the dragon - but other factors are at play too, New-age manufacturing techniques, including robotics, artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, are bringing jobs back to the West.

Neil Jacobsohn Power Shift away from the West continues

Anyone sceptical about the concept that economic power is shifting from the West? It has been fascinating to watch, over several years, how emerging countries have climbed the ladder in the Fortune Global 500 list. And the tipping point is just around the corner. But, as technology changes the scale and economics of manufacturing, could that shift again, as we postulated in the MindBullet alongside?
