    Sounds like a green wank in a strip club

    Or is that the opposite corner?

    Unless the reference is to forests of the metaphorical kind, the term “urban forest” is generally just an excuse for Green-infested municipal bureaucracies to block the removal or lopping of any tree, regardless of the danger, misery and expense it inflicts on those living near it.

    It is also part of the jargon of the Green-washers – build as many high-rise towers as you like in order to accommodate the population ponzi-scheme, and it’s all OK as long as you can point to a few trees being planted and protected in the “urban landscape” (usually some way distant from the high-rise towers).

    The Future of Employment – in Australia?

    I’m guessing along the lines of cash, contracting, part time, casual.

    Unless you are of the half that work for the government. Sinc may thinks blockchain could become quasi-cash, not sure how that will pan out. Maybe Bartercard Mk2.

    My argument tomorrow will be along these lines.

    The future for employment in the world is : Management financial consulting, Universities and Uber type websites……. eh…… wait a minute…….

    Actually I am offering a website where you can find a management consultant who can certify you… now that is the future.

    Actually I am offering a website where you can find a management consultant who can certify you…

    And a second, totally unrelated website where suitably certified parties can offer their management consulting skills, with very reasonable commission rates.

    The paper makes two key predictions.
    First, that blockchain adoption will cause both market disintermediation and organisational dehierarchicalisation.

    Public sector employment in one form or another. If you’re not a NDIS carer on minimum wage you’ll be in admin for the taxpayer-funded provider. If you’re not an aged care carer on minimum wage you’ll be in admin for… If you’re not a prison or detention centre officer on minimum wage you’ll…. If you’re not of the victim class you have no chance in the actual public service. Skilled people will be self-employed but deriving the bulk of their income from taxpayers. Investors will have a rocky ride subject to the whims of the government of the day. Insiders will prosper like never before. Sensible people will go on holiday to the US, “fall in love” and get a Green Card. Everybody else will be in “training” for yet to be invented jobs of the future.
    Why do I predict this? An hour of free advertising on the National Press Club today. National Director of GetUp on today. The revolution will not be stopped.
