the seas by people who often earn virtually nothing and while the fourth industrial revolution the age of robotics and automation promises radically to alter the lives of people in the rich world it is by no means clear whether any of the benefits will be passed on to the walls working people some global brands are discussing whether to reach shore manufacturing from asian sweat shops to europe where three d. princes might make clothes or shoes the world bank has projected that in some african or asian countries up to eighty percent of people might lose their jobs. if it's true that many workers many of them young women particular textile industries opportunity going to be out of a job or their workplace potentially radically reduced then to what extent will this lead to social unrest to social destitution and essentially a fundamental crisis of the whole that society others ask why someone who owns
3:26 am
a factory in the far east would bother investing in expensive robotic technology but it's far cheaper to keep paying workers a dollar a day to machine like that at the moment will be well beyond the reach of a factory owner in bangladesh or in china or vietnam for that matter. secondly a machine like that is likely to break down fairly often because it's a very fine piece of equipment if it breaks down the whole factory and then many in a factory the entire factory comes to a standstill social unrest is already a fact of life it could get far worse so to the continued and probably growing movements of people except the west they may want to move to might be suffering job losses itself as automation takes over. if the future of the developing world is to be decided in places right there if then frankly it looks pretty bleak either it seems robotics will increasingly be used to take jobs away from no three different
