Many people believe that we have been now living in a knowledge economy and having job skills in manufacturing or other industries won’t help you achieve the approach to life or level of income that you need to support your family adequately. But is this really true?
Once we know supply and demand dictates price and suppose you’re an automotive car detailer and there are not very many people who can do that job very well; free markets dictate price. Knowledge buzz The going rate is about $100 for a normal car and $160 for an SUV and takes about 1 to 1 1.8 hours to perform. Therefore you will be able to earn a good living with that group of job skills.
It really is true however that Information is power in fact it is the power driving innovation and economics. For example, the IT Industry is in full-blossom with labor shortages and those that are in the IT field can make a substantial amount of money and more than a lot of people in most professions. Our society demands more info and much more targeted information. This demand will drive up the value of the employee who is a knowledge worker in that industry sub sector.
Knowledge is Power aswell and those who control it also will control the power in the future. Entrepreneurial Capitalists and Industrial Capitalists of past periods owned the land and today we see start-up information companies ruling the planet. Information has gone Global and along the way it is getting mobile and it’ll fly; it’ll fly like nothing else.
Governments to survive and continue the ability to give information to citizens must upgrade IT Systems and eGovernment Initiatives. Business must cater to this new paradigm and they too must deliver information. In all this information distribution, first the info must be collected also it should be of value and correct. Things are much different now; if citizens do not trust the information from the federal government then they usually do not trust the government itself. Transparency and Accountability cannot be buzz-words.
They want the information, the right information and they want it first and immediately and so, therein lies the task for what’s normally a half-buttocks effort of bureaucracy. It is time for government to pony-up and arrived at plate reading to hit a grand slam home run with their eGovernment initiatives as the “Click Happy” eCitizen has no patience and even that’s wearing thin as we speak. Chop-Chop as they say or the eCitizens will become an eSmart Mob and well everybody knows what happened in France centuries the last; Chop-Chop.
