Technology is a mixed blessing – less people can produce more. If our political system is inadequate, then poverty for the majority and wealth for a few is the result. Take the emphasis away from ’employment’ – focus on income and distribution. Your old politics and your old economics are inadequate, Mr Gordon Brown. If the arab world can change the game in their arena, maybe progressive intellectuals and the People can change also the Global Game.
