Joseph E. Stiglitz argues that the impact of technological change on living standards has become increasingly unclear

Joseph E. Stiglitz argues that the impact of technological change on living standards has become increasingly unclear | Journalism | Scoop.it
Around the world, there is enormous enthusiasm for the type of technological innovation symbolized by Silicon Valley, with many attempting to replicate the ingenuity that they regard as America’s true comparative advantage. But there is a puzzle: it is difficult to detect the benefits of this innovation in GDP statistics.

Excellent article by Joe Stiglitz in Project Syndicate.

Artur Alves's curator insight, March 11, 5:38 AM

"Still, one cannot avoid the uneasy feeling that, when all is said and done, the contribution of recent technological innovations to long-term growth in living standards may be substantially less than the enthusiasts claim. A lot of intellectual effort has been devoted to devising better ways of maximizing advertising and marketing budgets – targeting customers, especially the affluent, who might actually buy the product. But standards of living might have been raised even more if all of this innovative talent had been allocated to more fundamental research – or even to more applied research that could have led to new products."

Eli Levine's curator insight, March 11, 9:34 AM

The valueless economy at work.  At least, the way that we measure it is valueless.

What good is monetary gain if it does not produce a better quality of life for everyone?

How does it help the elite if they destroy everything for the sake of personal monetary "gain"? 

 

Why do we sacrifice so much of our actual well being for the sake of GDP "growth" (if that "growth" manifests itself in the first place

 

Think about it.

 

Because, apparently, some very important people, are not.

 

Think about it.

BBC children’s department may move to commercial production subsidiary

BBC children’s department may move to commercial production subsidiary | Journalism | Scoop.it
Tony Hall’s ‘compare and compete’ strategy could see section follow Panorama in being produced by stand-alone subsidiary NewCo
rafaeldiazarias's insight:

La productora filial de la BBC produciría para la Corporación y para otras televisiones o difusores de contenidos. Se la transferiría los programas con suficiente aceptación comercial y por tanto capaces de recibir encargos de producción externos. Programas de actualidad (el famoso Panorama), naturaleza y hasta infantiles (se está discutiendo) pasarían a producirse por esa compañía filial. ¿Este cambio radical es una forma de privatización o un modo de rentabilizar los recursos públicos? Desde luego, parte de una potente capacidad de producción, que en el caso de TVE ha sido destruida.

Alors que la presse française titube, l'exigence s'affirme d'un modèle radicalement différent. Quel serait son cahier des charges ? Produire une information de qualité soustraite à la loi du marché comme aux pressions du pouvoir, loger numérique et papier à la même enseigne, inventer un mode de financement solide et juste.
