Say Goodbye to Jobs
The rapid rise of robots, the Internet and computers
is abolishing jobs by the millions.
(CNBC) - An increasing number of Chinese factories are ditching human workers for machines as a robotic revolution gets underway in the world's second-largest economy.
In the past month, two companies in the southern province of Guangdong, a major manufacturing hub, have reported plans to fill their factory floors with robots.
Evenwin Precision Technology is building a factory that will boast more than 1,000 industrial robots, China Daily reported in May. A maker of mobile phone components, Evenwin told the newspaper the move would reduce the number of frontline workers by at least 90 percent.
Meanwhile, home appliance maker Midea recently replaced 14 workers on one of its major assembly line, according to a Caixin report last month. Soon, it plans to replace quality-control supervisors with robots too.
China is already the world's largest industrial robot market - the country also manufactures the robots it uses - and it's expected to boast more industrial robots by 2017 than both Europe and North America combined, the International Federation of Robotics said earlier this year.Read More . . . .

Welcome to Eternal Poverty.
The poverty of the 1930s Great Depression is coming back. The moronic politicians and TV talking heads blunder forward thinking the future will look like the past, and they talk about new jobs and economic recovery.
Those of us still able to think for ourselves see the writing on the wall. Technology, robotics, the Internet and outsourcing are permanently abolishing jobs by the millions. At some point the consumer economy will collapse as people with jobs to buy products simply vanish.
The successful political party of the future will run on a "Jobs for Humans" platform. It will be a return of the Luddites as millions of people permanently made unemployable by machines demand help just to live.
|Anarchy and Violence|
Expect massive social unrest and violence in the streets as tens of millions of permanently jobless people get angry at having to live on the most basic of welfare payments, food stamps and crappy government housing.
