Well, the finance ministers, bankers etc in Europe delivered some sort of bail out thus saving the Euro and according to many economists the world's currencies . And naturally the USA rallied as one would expect to a 300 plus day on wall street. This speaks to the Jupiter in Taurus opposition to yesterday's new moon in Scorpio. Of course, the bigger question is how long will it stick? I don't know. But as I indicated in my new moon article this all may be subject to change (big change) when Saturn moves into Scorpio (Fall 2012).
Yesterday, I was driving around doing errands during the last hour of the Libra cycle and I was listening to a radio program that I like, called "To The Point". The subject matter was----
From farms to factories, and now to the service economy, human workers are losing their jobs to machines. The "creative destruction" that used to increase employment is working the other way around, and productivity is on the rise. As computers become more sophisticated, how can humans learn to compete
At first I thought,"Huh, this topic is as old as the hills. What's new on it?" But as I listened to it I was stunned by a lot of angles and data and information that I had not even considered. Do you know that if add up google, facebook and twitter employees you might get a hundred thousand? And those industries generate hundreds and hundreds of millions if dollars. Where are the jobs going to come from? And who is going to design new technology? American youth are not being educated in science and technology in the manner or degree to match our needs. Lots to ponder. It is a very interesting show and it is not depressing just something to consider. One interviewee (made up word?) said it
May be a case of machines doing all the work and we humans are on a permanent vacation. Huh? How does that
Work in our society, exactly? I mean that sound like inhabitants from a planet on an episode of Star Trek.
