I wrote a book about how survive and thrive in a world without work, where automation and machine learning and artificial intelligence and fuzzy logic take over.
The book is the result of 21 years of R&D and millions invested and over 20,000 hours invested. If a large strategy consultancy had done this work it would have cost about R130 million (US$7.5 million).
I thought it might take us another 15 years to get there. Little did I know that it would take six months and that it has already happened according to the NY Times "About 30 million American workers — one out of every five — are collecting jobless benefits."
My book is here: It is only R30 (US$1.73) until the end of July, after which it will be R60 (US$3.45). I have priced it for wide dissemination among the middle class who are suffering the most at the moment and who can "fix" this if they (we) wish. We cannot rely on the people and systems who got us into this mess and who want to "get back to normal." There is a new normal at the moment. We must grab it and accept it and work with it.
