The Smart Money

Smart economy – The Irish Times – Fri, Sep 04, 2009

For a start, there is no certainty that a smart economy will solve our unemployment problems. Such an economic model ultimately aims to transfer workers from supplying labour to skills and brain-power.

It seems you can supply skills and brain-power without supplying labour, which is a good trick. I look forward to an economy so smart that one can do as one pleases, playing the odd round of golf, pacing back and forth in the drawing room discussing the latest Margaret Atwood book, going for a hike across the fields with one’s mind on higher things, safe in the knowledge that one’s skills and brain-power are simultaneously getting put to work elsewhere in exchange for money.
