The Information Technology Era
The world is about to experience a revolutionary shift in how it views the economy, finance, and credit. Technology companies will drive these changes. To capitalize on the future’s dominance, it is important to invest in the IT-company.
A new group of companies emerged around the globe that had high financial capabilities, strong businesses, unlimited monopoly in each segment, and ambitious leaders that are capable of changing the world. Steve Jobs’ vision of the future is likely more than an iPhone in every pocket and a computer in every house.
The characteristics of high-tech companies include a large stock of money, virtually no debt, and positive constant influxes of money from core business. There is little chance of competition on the market. 100% of competitors could be bought, as they say, “standing”. This means that most of the innovative products, solutions, and software go to a small number of companies.
Global presence is not only physical but informational and technological.
These characteristics of the global tehnogiganty do not depend on any national governments or financial institutions. These companies have a large, though not always obvious, share of global domination. In fact, they likely have a great future. It is possible to change this situation, but it may be too late.
There is no way to keep the benefits they had in the precomputer era, even though wealth is becoming more public (internet, mobile communications, programming), and less intangible (content, software, communications).
Victim 1: Government.
Although the term “revolutionary Facebook” is already well-known, it seems that he has not been credited with it. Participants in the coordination of social network events are believed to be the reason for many revolutions in 2011, including those in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. Another example is freedom of information. Internet is available to everyone, and attempts by the state to take control of media seem futile. This is evident in Russia, where people are focusing on the Internet and distrusting the media. The government cannot keep secrets anymore (Wikileaks is an example). They are unable to consolidate the masses and they are unable to control the emergence social groups (previously called “parties” obsolete).
The monopoly of information, propaganda, and brainwashing citizens has been lost by the State and Government. They have also lost a large part of the government they had previously. It is wrong to assume that this power has been lost forever. Instead, it is transferred from government to companies that control network media. The state had previously enjoyed control over information through financial flows, but now it is a global Internet corporation.
Will these changes be permanent?
What happens to the state’s fiscal functions?
The Internet makes it possible to create a representative and direct democracy. However, the government is not controlled by a few elected or appointed bureaucrats kings, but all citizens.
Is the state going to continue to exert control over the lives of citizens by issuing permits and references?
Is there a border for programs, data, and move data?
Will the state continue to oversee the election process through the authorities, the judiciary, and the transport infrastructure?
These issues are unlikely to be overlooked by global technology companies.
Victim 2: Financial companies and banks
It is simple: you can make payments online without visiting the bank and don’t have to use his services directly. This is known as “electronic payments systems”. Google owns its own payment system and social network with 90 million users… This prevents Internet giants with their enormous financial resources and audience from organizing the “electronic bank”, “electronic trading”, “electronic credit bureau”, etc. And so on.
It is only a matter time before banks, stock exchanges, and other financial intermediaries are forced from Internet companies. There is no other than an outdated and dense textbook on economics, a striped suit, and a shiny, bald head. A second is all that is needed: core business, which generates revenue, commitment, customers, technology and the desire to conquer this world.
The paper money will soon be replaced by electronic “paper” bank notes.
Victim 3: Rights Holders
We have known for a long time that copyright is best discussed in numbers. These numbers can be written on magnetic or optical media.
Only the owners of: the methods of writing information to the media, production of media, reading with media carriers, programs for reproduction of content, and transmission of information may have control.
Although books and CDs could be transferred to someone, it was still possible to do so (referring to the fight against piratery). However, once the information has been entered into an electronic network, the battle is lost.
It does not mean that they do not receive the profits from the sale or reproduction of works of art. In fact, they have received a lot of the Internet’s largest companies. They are already active in this sector and all other sectors (record companies and movie theaters, shops and audioplastinoks, traditional media, etc.). They quietly serve the dustbins of history.
Victim 4: Education sector
First, the good news is that you will not need to physically travel to the school to get the information. You can also live on campus and eat in the cafeteria to receive relief from a physical exam. He was able to enjoy all of this, and still live to tell the tale.
Bad news: The money you save on housing and tickets to Oxford will be used to fund the IT-company. Money, money, again and again with the same recipients.
The education system, as a way of storing information, is now obsolete. People are attracted to business schools or technical universities because they have a way of thinking, as well as social ties and a willingness to learn. However, there are no obstacles that could prevent you from achieving all of this.
