Life in fifty years will be a lot different then it is now. In most peoples eyes they see the world having flying cars and floating houses but I believe the world will be more eco-friendly and organic. Lives will be saved, let it be humans or even animals. With new living styles, resolving health issues, and coming to world peace it can lead to happier and longer life spans for most individuals. By 2061 technology will have greatly improved such as holograms and robots. Government will be apart of every moment of our lives from the time we are born until the time we pass. Freedom will be scarce because the government will have control over every move we make. Everyone will work for the government and no job will benefit one-self. Our government will be ran as if we had “a mother” watching over us. Our leader of this type of government will be a female president, who represents control and power. You see these type of example in today society when the majority of women run an organization.
With a rise in population the environment was in need of a solution for housing. Everyone begins to leaves the cities and moves to the forests or other spots in nature. The homes will consist of constructed tree houses. They will be solid glass on the outside—you can see out, but others cannot see in—and they will be very high tech. There will be no reason to cut down trees or corrupt animal habitats. Children will start school around the ages of 2 to 3 years old. Teachers will not be teaching because they will be learning on a online website. Computers are the only resource that anyone will be using. If there is any need of assistant teachers will appear as a hologram. The students will get their assignments through e- mail and kids will go to school 7 days a week—expect for holidays that the government allows.
…What About the American Economy and Workforce 50 Years From Now?
Tim O’Reilly, Founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media:
I see several scenarios, and in all of them, people are working. In the first scenario, we eventually come to our senses and realize that climate change, crumbling infrastructure, the demographic inversion, are going to toast our civilization unless we take action. As Nick Hanauer says, “Technology is the solution to human problems. We won’t run out of work until we run out of problems.”
In the second scenario, we don’t deal with those things, and everyone is working, scrambling to stay alive. In the third, really optimistic scenario, we’ve got a magic bullet, have invested successfully in the hard problems, our machines are doing most of the nasty work, and we spend more time entertaining and helping each other. We will have to dignify a lot of new things as “work.”
I was talking with MIT labor economist David Autor about societies with, effectively, a guaranteed basic income. He contrasted Saudi Arabia and Norway. In Saudi Arabia, many kinds of work are looked down on, done by low wage “guest workers”, and the locals have sinecure government jobs, and live a sybaritic lifestyle. It’s kind of like the Hunger Games, or H.G. Wells’s Eloi and Morlocks from The Time Machine. In Norway, Autor says, every kind of work is valued. Everyone works, just not that much, and they spend more time on social and artistic pursuits.
We can do much better. Machines could help us solve problems that are difficult today, and build a fairer society that works better for everyone. But we have to take charge and make it so.
