Automation threatens 69% jobs in India: World Bank

Automation threatens 69 per cent of the jobs in India, while 77 per cent in China, according to a World Bank research which has said that technology could fundamentally disrupt the pattern of traditional economic path in developing countries.

“As we continue to encourage more investment in infrastructure to promote growth, we also have to think about the kinds of infrastructure that countries will need in the economy of the future. We all know that technology has and will continue to fundamentally reshape the world,” World Bank president Jim Kim said.

“But the traditional economic path from increasing productivity of agriculture to light manufacturing and then to full-scale industrialisation may not be possible for all developing countries,” Mr. Kim said in response to a question at the Brookings Institute during a discussion on extreme poverty on Tuesday.

  1. Big business will always be greedy to amass more wealth and will try to do work with less an less man power. It does not mean any thing to them if millions of people live in poverty and starve.

    1. Nothing to do with size of the business.

      I know some small businesses (less than 20 employees) using very advanced technology and thus saving on additional employees.

      Everyone is doing it... small to big businesses.
