What a coincidence – it was announced on Monday that the Nobel Prize in Economics this year go to Angus Deaton and thus, inter alia, his work is to be assessed on inequalities.

Now, the physicist Stephen Hawking proposes in the same line and warns of the growing inequalities of a society. Catalyst for these inequalities to be especially technology, cited “CNN Money” the British.

Great leaps in technology most people would “bitterly poor” to leave, he says. And that has to be partially blamed on the growing differences in society, inter alia, the Bling-tech industry.

The development of the tech industry throw two options, said the scientist. One was to divide the wealth created machine, the other would be that the owners of the machines successfully defend themselves against the distribution. “At present, it seems to go in the second direction, with a technology that further deepened the differences.”

So Hawking stands in a hornet’s nest. Example San Francisco – there grumbling more and more citizens against the Silicon Valley, the well-paid employees would leave the rents rise to prohibitive. Even experts stand on the side of the physicist. “I interpret the data so that the main technology drivers of the recent differences of equilibrium growth,” says the MIT professor Erik Brynjolfsson.

Although technology has pushed the economic growth in the US and elsewhere. The Silicon Valley has developed such a high radiance that many regions around the world would also like something similar created. But the problem – the cake though is growing, but not everyone gets a bigger slice. So technology had destroyed a number jobs in the industry – classic working positions. The people would have resorted to jobs in trade or nursing. But which are paid significantly worse. A development that is likely to continue to move forward so. So warned a study of the British University of Oxford in 2014, almost half of today’s jobs are at stake.
