Opinion – Countries could boost their GDP by 5-20% if women were treated equally with work and pay – the Economist – John Gelmini

There is a growing problem in the world with income inequality in its own right and this will worsen with automation, AI, nanotechnology, robotics and self replicating machines.

This will start in 2019, when AI overtakes human intelligence and we move into the age of cybernetics and implanted expert systems, modelled on the “Matrix style jump programme” featured in the original film and Matrix Revolutions.

Governments the world over need to be planning for this eventuality now for woman and, of course, for blue-collar males who as yet lack the skills to become self-sufficient owners of micro businesses.
