The Third Industrial Revolution

The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new economic system.

The Changing Face of Unions

If unions are to regain their relevance, they need to understand the changing nature of their potential membership.  

They need to find a way to become relevant to the white collar skilled workforce.  Find ways to embrace AI and other technologies that are likely to take jobs.  Work with employers to ensure everybody wins.  Find ways to work with Government to ensure all occupations including retired, school, unpaid work, under-employed, casual workers. 

This will mean working with all parties for the common good and coming up with new ideas that fit the way our society is moving without accepting the top-down greed currently driving the economy.

In Queensland we have the Crime and Corruption Commission; in Victoria they have the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission; in New South Wales they have ICAC, the Independent Commission Against Corruption. But there is no federal equivalent. It's 2½ years since the Morrison government claimed to have started work on its own weak,...

The coalition promised a draft bill to establish a national integrity commission by last Christmas, but for those who want a federal ICAC there was nothing under the Christmas tree. This government promised immediate support for bushfire victims. Months later, only four per cent have received help. They said six million people...
