How do we fall on the right side of the knowledge divide?

Perhaps, by investing in our own capability: education and training.

Building our capacity will no longer be sufficient (land, capital, labour).

“Lacking the right training means being shut out of opportunities like never before.

Marriages, families, businesses, countries, cities, and regions all will see a greater split in material outcomes….

…namely, they will either rise to the top in terms of quality or make do with unimpressive results.

These trends stem from some fairly basic and hard to reverse forces:

  • the increasing productivity of intelligent machines,
  • economic globalization, and
  • the split of modern economies into both very stagnant sectors and some very dynamic sectors.”
