In 2017 the world is getting a lot smaller, not bigger. Politics is taking over every corner of the world. Everyone wants to get ahead but the jobs become less and less. Us, as human beings have begun to evolve faster and faster into some what super humans who seem to be able to do a lot more then in previous years. The efficiency of the corporate model is still valid; however technology; super strength of the employee and the development of industry at an all-time low contribute to a melt-down in the world of economics. If we are to think about the future, it is clear that industries need less manpower to do more. This is going to led to a mass unemployment on the planet. The only ones who are going to survive are the innovators. What are the industries of the future when everything seems to have been invented already? As a human race, I think it is not logical to want to regress into an old way of life, so looking into the past for answers is probably not the best solution.
One example is the retail industry. Currently in 2017, a Super Center would employ 600 employees, mostly full-time 7 years ago. Now, at the same store there may be 600 employees still on the payroll but the average hours of the workers have all decreased to less than part-time hours. On the surface of things, the amount of workers looks the same for the tax revenue company but in actual fact 3/4 of the hourly wages have been cut in stealth. This act is mostly done in a kind of a secret way, as not to alarm the Municipalities, the Province and the Federal Government in which the Super Center operates. This means that the numbers of staff and the hours of the staff have changed significantly. It is important for corporate companies to reflect the true financial and operational situation to the government; but at the same time, the government creates checks and balances of specific corporations in such a way, as to not receive an accurate account of what is actually happening in a corporation. This leads to a lack of responsibility on behalf of the government, because in many cases, they will say, “We were not informed of these economic trends; we did not know.” So what then happens is that one day, in the not so distant future, many workers will not be able to sustain themselves from their income. That will in turn lead to more crimes being committed and more demands on the health care system. The jail system would then become overloaded and the health care system as well. This phenomenon, in my opinion, cannot be avoided. It is like a flooding dam that is about to burst. It is no use trying to repair it when it on the verge of falling a part. Economics, like nature is very hard to predict exactly when a crisis will strike. Looking at history, one can understand and learn the patterns and try to come up with both part-time, full-time and permanent solutions – however mostly what humans do is solve things as they fall a part and not sooner; because a lot of the time, it is the hope it will not happen.
Some corporations operate in a different mode. They themselves start to panic and create plans and blue-prints to prevent a failure from happening. They try to keep on surviving. Yet other companies make decisions based on the idea of failure; which seems to be an ironic perspective but it is not. It is not an ironic situation because it means the company is gearing for a fall-out. Sometimes it makes economic and financial sense to cut parts of the company out of the equation. For example, if a company has 32 departments and only 3 are profitable; then they may make the decision to cut out 29 departments.
