Just signed up. Long time viewer of the Y/T vids, just now finding my way here.
Looking forward to interesting discussions.
Interested in anything that is novel, which could be a unique way of looking at a common thing, or something new.
I work in public accounting and have been tasked with making a presentation on 'the firm of the future'.
I know some of the recent vids have touched briefly on different political structures and the impact of extended life times on one's career and how people would structure when they have children and so on.
There is so much going on today that 'feels like the future'. The robots aren't coming for our jobs; they are already here, but while they are taking certain jobs, they are creating other new ones. I learned the industry using pencil and 13 column paper and can now run my client's books from my phone.
Would be interested to know what the impact of the science and technology that undergirds so many topics would hold on the mundane things like paying one's taxes - which I know is a 'niche topic' (being charitable), but haven't seen much on this, other than 'AI this and AI that' and 'Blockchain!' - but what would that actually mean for society; everyone's every day lived experience of interacting in a political system with such advancements and yet we'd still be relegated to filing a 1040?
Case in point: Most nations have a territorial based tax system, but the US has a world-wide system. You cannot escape the tax man. But, what if we become a multi-planetary society? Surely income earned on another celestial body should not come under the sway of an Earth-bound government.
