The Daily Stirrer is constantly looking at the news and trying to dig out the stiory behind the story. With latest news that does not make mainstream media and controversial reporting and opinion, we are loking forward to bringing you inside information on the disintegration of the European Union, the replacement of the Petrodollar as global reserve currency, the continuing decay of the USA (unless Trump can neutralise the authoritarian warmongers of the deep state, and we don't think he can) and the ongoing problems caused by the flood of illegal immigrants from the third world to Europe and North America. We certainly do live in Interesting Times.

Artificial Intelligence: Nearly nine million British jobs could be lost to AI by 2030?
Workers in retail, manufacturing and business administration most at risk
Artificial Intelligence fail (source: www.ntrguadalajara.com/ >
Nearly nine million British jobs could be destoyed over the next two decades as robots and Artificial Intelligence displace human workers. People working in retail, manufacturing and business support services are most at risk, figures released by The Department Of Work and Pensions reveal. But government ministers said regions across Britain are prepared for the challenge posed by robots and are in the process of creating jobs which are at lower risk from AI. Employment Minister Alok Sharma told The Daily Mail website MailOnline: "Every industrial revolution has eventually resulted in more jobs being created than lost in the economy."
The minister added, "Whilst jobs which can be automated are currently most at risk from the impact of robots, jobs which require more cognitive and people skills are on the increase. This means that our jobs market is absorbing the impact of robots and more people are in work than ever before. And as companies look to technology to boost productivity, this can be an opportunity for a generation of workers who, armed with new skills, can enjoy the jobs of the future. That is why I am determined to make sure we are investing in retraining opportunities, allowing people to forge new careers."
Tech enthusiasts dismiss this, saying that the next generation of robots will have human like intelligence and be capable of carrying out and task a human can. If nothing else the figures lay bare the massive change to Britain's industrial landscape which looms on the horizon thanks to AI and ought to make politicians aware they need to start planning for the social consequences of this rather than pandering to the tech corporations, most of which have proved irresponsibe and ethically dysfuntional.
While governments are offering corporate businesses tax breaks and other incentives to adopt technology to boost productivity they are not thinking about the downside. "This can be an opportunity for a generation of workers who, armed with new skills, can enjoy the jobs of the future," one politician smarmed.
As usual where "science and technology" are involved, they hype is far outstripping the reality. Artificial Intelligence is a meaningless term bandied about by tech wankers for sixty years and yet we are no nearer to creating a truly intelligent computer now than we were then. As you read this page think for a moment that a computer can be loaded with all the words on this page and detained definitions for each. And then you can enter a command to make the computer parse these words. And at the end of the task the computer will have no more idea what the page is about than a similar machine that has been wiped clean of all its data, siftware and firmware.RELATED POSTS:

1) innovation & competitiveness,
2) domestic output,
3) share of world trade,
4) financial-center size and power,
5) military strength, and
6) reserve-currency status....and they show when different countries reached their peaks relative to the rest of the world." And to support his position he has put together an impressive set of statistics showing how global and regional powers from Portugal in the west and China in the east, in the late medieval era, rose to economic dominance in the west, and how as Portugal declined to be replaced by Spain, then France, then The British Empire and finally the USA all rose to dominate while they had a stable culture and strong values, and all declined when political factors undermined that cultural stability and government started to medle in private affairs. China on the other hand, dominated in the east from around 1200 to 1900 CE only being challenged by the British and the Japanese in India from the mid nineteenth century. China's social system had stagnated through isolation, while Jaoan's had been revitalised by contact forst with Portuguese and Dutch traders and then US government and business interests. After the communists took over China's still stagnant society the nation became even more isolated until the idealist Mao Tse Tung was replaced by equally totalitarian but more pragmatic leaders who opened up the country economically and allowed individualism and enterprise to flourish. The reformed communist party opened up the economy but maintained the cultural stability based on family, community and tradition. And judging by Dalio's take on American culture, it is clear where he thinks this is going...
"Most fundamentally, the US is a country in which individuals, individualism, and individual property rights are perceived to be of paramount importance it is directed from the bottom up (e.g., through “one man, one vote” democracies that empower people to choose their leaders), being revolutionary is considered a good thing, and conflict is valued more than harmony.
Rather than respecting top down control most American have a strong preference to keep government from interfering with their most individual choices. Character development is a personal or family issue, not a government issue (which leaves it largely neglected in areas with broken families, especially if they’re poor).
Rather than there being a long-term top down vision for the country and a plan to achieve that vision, in the capitalist and democratic system such directions are more bottom up determined based on commercial and popularity considerations."Thus Dalio comes to the conclusion that as the USA continues to fragment socially it's economic decline will also continue, while the Chinese, bound by their strong and stable culture, will continue to forge ahead, with the inevitable result that the US$ will lose its reserve currency status, something which is already happening as we have reported HERE. Of course, the world's largest hedge fund manager avoids directly slamming America's 'dream' or supporting China's central planners: "I’m not saying which system is better. Each culture/system has its pros and cons that I’m not going to get into now. I believe that the important thing to know are that while there will be trade wars and trade truces they aren’t the most important things. " So, in summary, "it's not the economy, it's the culture stupid!"

After Triggering Mass Migration Crisis, Germany Bribing Foreigners To Leave
Angela Merkel is seen by many Germans as more committed to advancing Islam in Europe than respresenting the wished of German voters. (picture source: www.tapwires.com )
Though Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel only clings to power by her fingernails as the fragile coalition she leads staggers from crisis to crisis, the damaging effects of her 'open doors' immigration policy, which triggered the European Union's mass migration crisis continue to damage Germany. It may be amusing for supporters of national sovereignty to observe her antics as, with one face the pledges support for a United Nations initiative to open all national borders top anybody wishing to cross, while with the other she tries to persuade German voters she has listened to public opinion and understands her mass immigration policy is abhorred by a majority of voters, but it is harming Germany.
The migrant crisis and its effect in destroying the Globalist and Eurocrat dream of merging the EU's member states into a single federal superstate, a policy of which Merkel has been one a leading supporter, is probably the main, no not the only, thing behind the resurgence of nationalism, and is also credited with revealing to voters just how far out of touch with ordinary people political leaders, media commentators and showbiz luvvies are.
In one of it's most bizarrre misreadings of the public mood yet, the German government has now mounted an aggressive campaign to encourage illegal migrants to leave germany by bribing them with free rent for a year in their home countries if they return.
"Your country. Your future. Now!” read billboards in seven languages, plastered in nearly 2,500 locations across 80 German cities, reports the National Post.
A series of flags corresponding with the top-destinations – Egypt, Turkey, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Russia – shapes a zigzagging road to a fictional horizon.The “ReturningfromGermany” ad campaign is the latest tactic by the German government to boost departures and deter migration, in a reversal of Angela Merkel’s controversial welcoming policy of 2015 at the height of the Syrian refugee crisis. The campaign is the brainchild of interior minister Horst Seehofer, Merkel’s rebellious right-wing rival, who forced a coalition crisis over Germany’s asylum policy last summer. -National Post
New arrivals of undocumented, unskilled and in many cases illiterate people have arrived trying to claim asylum seeker or refugee status, (they are neither, being purely economic migrants,) have normalized since a flood of 700,000 migrants three years ago, a backlog of rejected claims has built up due to the lengthy legal process involved in deporting these people. The billboard campaign is aimed at the estimated 235,000 people who are still required to leave the country according to the interior ministry.
Most asylum seekers whose claims have been rejected can't return to their country of origin due for several reason; danger, lack of documentation or they suffer from an illness. The German government has dubbed these people "duldung," which means "tolerated."
Denied asylum seekers who don't fit either of those categories typically don't show up for their deportation. Of more than 20,000 scheduled airport repatriations in 2018, just half of them appeared to take flights back home.
Horst Seehofer, the German interior minister, aims to encourage migrants to leave with the cash-giveaway billboard campaign - offering 1,000 - 1,200 euros for a single person and 3,000 for families to provide for basic needs.
Not everyone is a fan of the new "stepping stone system," in which "you get more money if you choose to leave earlier on," according to Meiki Riebau - a lawyer and migration expert at Save the Children Germany. Riebau's organisation is still supporting Merkel's discredited "All migrsnts, refugees and asylum seekers welcome" approach to immigration control. This is going down like the proverbial lead Zeppelin with the families of women, girls and some boys who have been victims of violent sexual assaults by sexually incontinent Muslim males.
Perhaps Germany's cash incentive will turn out to be more successful than Britain's approach when Prime Minister Theresa May had vans drive through neighborhoods with billboards reading "Go home or face arrest." Her initiative resulted in just 11 voluntary departures.Obviously life in a British prison is preferable to life in a third world shithole country. British voters understandably take the view that these people are not our problem.
