Thriving in Spite of Offshoring and Job Automation -- New Book from EraNova Shows How

As the World Starts to Run on Automatic, Richard W. Samson's Definitive 'Mind Over Technology' Offers a Profitable Paradigm Shift for Individuals, Companies and Communities

MOUNTAIN LAKES, NJ - Feb. 5, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Amid growing concern about U.S. high-tech and service jobs following manufacturing jobs abroad, a new book pinpoints the root causes and lays out a solution path. "MIND OVER TECHNOLOGY: Coming Out On Top As a Wired World Starts to Run on Automatic" by Richard W. Samson (ISBN 1-59457-234-8) is the first major work to put the issue into historical perspective. Samson is director of think tank EraNova Institute (www.eranova.com).

"Jobs are not just going offshore," says Samson, "they're going off-people -- into systems that are more and more automatic." The ensuing employment churn could destabilize the economy and fuel social backlash, he warns.

Employment is becoming more uncertain for a simple, unrecognized reason: Just as machinery took over muscle work in the industrial era, today's information-age tools are taking over mind work. Earlier, people adjusted by shifting from manual to know-how work, "but that won't work this time," says Samson, since know-how is the very thing being usurped. "The solution isn't simply to train people for higher-level jobs. We don't need nine million biotech researchers. And almost any tech job you learn will be volatile. Let's say you train to become a programmer or web designer. Overnight your work could be transferred to India or a Web Services application."

book cover (c) eranova Today's employment insecurity is aggravated by another factor: "technogreed." That is plain old greed joined with technical opportunism. Samson's book documents corrosive effects such as the swelling ranks of white-collar working poor.

On the solution side, the book offers corporate, governmental, and individual tactics for preserving America's middle class and sharing the benefits of today's productivity. Seven "hyper-human" practices, appropriate for information-age survival, are presented.

About "MIND OVER TECHNOLOGY": Trade paper; 268 pages; ISBN 1-59457-234-8; from Global Book Publisher, a partner of R.R. Bowker. It may be ordered from Amazon.com, Borders.com, Alibris.com, BookSurge.com, bookstores, and by dialing 866-308-6235. A 19-page excerpt is available at http://www.eranova.com.

Samson, an expert on the mind and technology, has published 10 books and served as consultant to AT&T, Cisco and IBM.
