Did I understand?
Everybody loves Anthro-Talentism so I decided to read him.
Luckily, one of his earliest postings explains everything.
It's called, "What Is Talentism?"
And here's what I think it means.
Talentism is the belief that the pursuit of special employees is a fundamental aspect of doing business in the present age.
These days, the money required for production machinery is cheap compared to the return.
Work done on your personal computer can bring in way more than the cost of a pc.
Machines Cost More Than People
So, stake money isn't a big issue. In the past, though, it was. In the Industrial Age you needed a lot of money to buy production machinery.
The people who worked them, however, were cheap and replaceable. Because all the machines demanded were robotic actions (on an assembly line).
People Cost More Than Machines
Now, more work requires thought and education. And the people who possess them are scarce. So, there's a war for talent. And skilled workers cost more than the machines.
There's Nothing New Under The
I'm not sure how the talented workers of today are different from the designers and skilled tradesmen of the past. Maybe there's just more of them.
So, you still have the aristocrats of the working class and everyone else.
Anthro says the means of production will be in the hands of the workers.
But capitalism will drive the revolution.
When pc's are the means of production, everyone can own one.
But, is all machinery is going to be so cheap and portable?
And why will capitalism drive the revolution? Anthro doesn't say.
I have an idea. Do any of his fans know?
