"Bigger boosts to productivity will be difficult to find. There are efforts to share more information: Leeds City Council has set up an 'Intelligence Hub' to monitor differences in care across the city and identify bottlenecks, for instance. Technology can be used to monitor old folks’ needs, alerting carers only if something goes wrong. But local authorities and providers are limited in how much they can innovate, given strict rules on quality and safety, and most of them lack the cash required to invest in new models of care.

The most obvious remaining savings are not in the social-care sector, but in the National Health Service (NHS). According to Age UK, a charity, last year patients spent 174,000 days waiting in hospital beds for places in residential care homes, even though an NHS hospital bed is more than three times as costly as one in a care home. All eyes are on Manchester, where health and social-care commissioning are to be integrated, in the first large-scale experiment of its kind in England. But any savings are likely to take years to materialise..."

"So the real debate is about the new version of capitalism: do we 'design this,' or pretend that everything will be okay as the tech elite get richer and people who lose their jobs get poorer?" - https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/we-need-new-version-capitalism-jobless-future-vivek-wadhwa?trk=eml-b2_content_ecosystem_digest-network_publishes-356-null&midToken=AQH0N8qWvtVxmw&fromEmail=fromEmail&ut=3h250RaYQKOSQ1 - Thank you for sharing this Vivek Wadhwa. #RESPECT

#INsightful #RESPECT "In the 2013 memoir Lean In, Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg explained how to get ahead in the existing male-dominated tech culture. Leaning in is about how to speak up so that men will hear you. Lean Out—a feminist anthology of 25 stories by 18 writers—takes Sandberg's point a step further, urging women to build their own cultures and create their own spaces. In effect, to sidestep the patriarchy." - http://www.metroactive.com/features/Lean-Out-Elissa-Shevinsky-Silicon-Valley.html
