But the real issue is not these obvious points. It is instead that this technology revolution has now most likely reached maturity. We are consuming as much tech as we want. The room for iterations that will actually appeal to available markets looks small. The rate of change is bound to decline as a result. The tech revolution is not over, and I don’t for a moment suggest it is, but I also think it has ceased to be the driver of change that it was.
That leaves us in an era where things are going to be different. For example, if tech changes less often we will not be changing our IT as much to keep up. Nor will we be consuming adverts in the way we were, at least potentially. But, most of all, this is not where the focus of investment attention is going to be, and that seems like a big change.
The obvious question, in that case, is where is that focus going to be? My answer is straightforward. Money will be going towards the green economy now. That is where the money is needed. That is where the returns will be as companies have to become net zero, or cease to exist. And that is where people want to work.
Super, so we need no schemes, tax or other, to make this happen, do we?
