It’s about time politicians all over the world develop the courage to explain and tackle the root of growing unemployment instead of engaging in beggar-thy-neighbour protectionist policies. That is populism at its worst, and we must do our best to ensure that our representatives are well-informed and have our support to make sweeping changes.
In countries such as Singapore, the government is already heavily subsidising retraining to ensure that everyone has relevant and in-demand skills. There is a Future Economy that will be radically different from the one we know now.
