Hi Aneto. This may be old but I thought to explore a school of thought with you.

The Great Depression saw a widespread moment of turmoil and hunger. The industrial revolution brought about the shutdown of businesses due to an increase in machination of processes in factories. Walmart caused a lot of mom and pop shops to shut down. All through history, whenever any disruptive innovation has occurred, it has caused man to go back to the drawing board and come up with newer and more relevant ways to stay employable.

With the current automation of manufacturing processes, a new opportunity presents itself, where allied industries will spring up. These machines will need to be maintained. The algorithms on which they function would also need to be constantly updated. The security threat of hackers and hacktivists leaves a unique opportunity for cyber security officials. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I say that this calls for a return to the drawing board, to see how jobs that will are relevant to the times could be harnessed. We cannot, for example, return to carthode ray televisions, just to save the jobs of the workers in those factories.

I look forward to hearing more about your endeavors which I can already tell, are definitely going to be relevant to the world’s current unemployment problems.
