Toffler's Next Shock

an article by Alvin Toffler in the 1990 World Monitor

(our site's article review)

This article gave information about the Tofflers’ Powershift book—just before it came out, in 1990. He emphasizes that the new division in our world will be between the fast and the slow. Power has shifted to the fast—the Third Wave nations. If the fast decide to ignore the slow and not help them get fast as well, the slow may retaliate against the fast. “To plug into the new world economy, countries like China, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, India, as well as the Soviet Union [written in 1990] and the East European nations must find the resources needed to install their own electronic infrastructures.”

He also stresses that it may be more profitable to run an advanced, modern industrial enterprise in the U.S. than a backward factory in China that depends upon badly-educated, low-wage workers, because better technology, faster and better information flows, decreased inventory and streamlined organization can yield savings far beyond those that can be saved by opting for cheap hourly workers. So, ultimately, this could mean some industries returning some jobs to this country.

Of course, that was then, this is now. It's 2014. It is the U.S. that has the badly-educated, low-wage workers, while China has some of the best educated students anywhere. While our liberal media was teaching our young—especially the underclass minorities—that hard work is for suckers and it's better to be a slacker since parents will furnish food and shelter for free, the Chinese parents and media were championing hard work and diligent studying. So guess where the U.S. technology companies find new workers? They import them from Asian countries. And guess which country took Toffler's writings seriously? China! Guess which country has a generation of young people who've never heard of Toffler? The U.S.! Many Chinese have learned to be expert hackers that spend their time ripping off the American middle class via hacking, exploits, hijacking, and phishing. Starting to see a pattern here . . .
