Sex, drugs and GDP: the challenge of measuring the shadow economy.

Sex, drugs and GDP: the challenge of measuring the shadow economy. | Managing the Transition | Scoop.it
Several European nations are moving to include illicit doings like drugs and prostitution when tallying their GDP, but some economists are questioning the merit and methods of trying to measure the shadow economy.
Fab GOUX-BAUDIMENT's insight:

The STIGLITZ report wasn't it clear enough about obsolescence of measurements such as the GDP?

Vers une innovation sans emploi ? - Millenaire3

Vers une innovation sans emploi ? - Millenaire3 | Managing the Transition | Scoop.it

C’est un leitmotiv que répètent de longue date économistes, chefs d’entreprise et décideurs publics : sans croissance pas d’emplois. Mettre un terme à la période de relative stagnation que nous connaissons depuis 2008 apparait dès lors comme une priorité absolue. Le problème est que renouer avec la croissance pourrait ne pas suffire. Car, comme le montre cet article d’Hubert Guillaud, rédacteur en chef d'InternetActu.net, différents signaux convergent aujourd’hui pour indiquer que l’innovation chère à Schumpeter se ferait de moins en moins créatrice et de plus en plus destructrice d’emplois.

Very interesting video, but regarding point 3. that "We are moving to right-brain work-jobs" I must note there are no "right-brain" jobs. This left-right brain distinction is oversimplified neuromyth.

 

“The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction does not offer us the full picture of how creativity is implemented in the brain.* Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.” (http://t.co/3l5nM7IsEi)

The future of work. 

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, June 9, 2014 10:53 PM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Media and technology futurist Gerd Leonhardoutlines his vision of the future of work given the many profound changes shaping the planet during the coming decades.

 

Key highlights: 

 

We will be able to offload tedious, repetitive work to computers and robots who will replace rapidly many of our present jobs

At the same time entirely new jobs will be created - for example:
Digital Curation 
Social Engineering
Artificial Intelligence Designers 

We are moving to right-brain work-jobs - that is: storytelling, emotions, creativity and imagination, negotiation 

Education prepares us by having us learn things that we may need later. But in most cases we don't need those things but we rather need to know how to learn new things.

More craftmanship-type of jobs like cooks, makers, hackers, coders, will fluorish as computers-machines cannot replicate such skills (yet)

This is just another article about cool technology that's coming out now. This was created by the same company that created the Segway (and despite what anyone says, unless you've been on one, you don't know how great they actually are). Watch the video embeded in the article. Neat stuff! More of the cyber age coming to fruition!

The world after Big Data: What the digital revolution means for us

The world after Big Data: What the digital revolution means for us | Managing the Transition | Scoop.it

Never before were politicians, business leaders, and scientists more urgently needed to master the challenges ahead of us. We are in the middle of a third industrial revolution. While we see the symptoms, such as the financial and economic crisis, cybercrime and cyberwar, we haven't understood the implications well. But at the end of this socio-economic transformation, we will live in a digital society. This comes with breath-taking opportunities and challenges, as they occur only every 100 years.

This is a great article by a friend of this blog, Larry Kunz. He talks about the evolution of using different technologies over the past few decades to today, and questions the direction we are going with all these tools. It's an insightful conversation starter. After reading this, what do you think?  I think Larry asks the same questions that I often think about myself when thinking about tools and tech comm.

Future of Libraries Issues | Ken Haycock

Future of Libraries Issues | Ken Haycock | Managing the Transition | Scoop.it

During the two day summit last week in Vancouver on the Future of Libraries so many issues emerged, and so many thoughtful responses. I note here some of the issues but guest bloggers will contribute more context and elaboration, even a few answers, over the next few weeks… The future is not what it used to be! City managers and provosts are seeing less expensive options within their jurisdictions, whether preschool programs in community centers or space in cafeterias. Shared services is shining a spotlight on perceived duplication, and we are expensive. As we move into new areas (learning centers, after school programs, research support, maker spaces) others already occupy much of that space. Conversely, other public agencies are moving into “our” space. As senior staff is reduced, library directors are not immune. More are picking up related responsibilities for community centers and cultural institutions and even parking and dogs in cities while in universities, information technology, information management, learning services, bookstores, museums, are all being rolled together in one portfolio. It can no longer take two years to make decisions like integrating two desks. The world is moving faster than we are.

Nice, albeit brief article I found on Google+. Emergining technology is just that--emerging. There are a lot of good things going on, but we're not there yet with some of the concepts. Just so you don't think that I'm against any of that sort of thing despite my less than desirable experience with Google Glass.
