2017: Rise Of The Drones, Failure Of The Government

Government should be investing in upskilling the “at risk” workforces of today (which isn’t just van drivers, by the way, but includes advanced manufacturing, accountancy and finance and the law too) whilst mitigating the inevitable job losses that will come from economic transition. It should use technology to transform the delivery of our public services and it should recognise that in a world where cyber warfare, global terrorism and mass migration continue to be problems, that only international cooperation will do. And we should start to re-design the role of the state, with state based insurance for gig-economy workers unable to get holiday or sick pay, and well-funded online access points in every community through established networks such as libraries, to name just two ideas.
