Companies like to play with numbers. In addition, Intel is part of the lot. A good strategy to get rid of jobs, even if in the end it is the people who pay for them, is to say, "Everything is bad". That the profits, instead of being 1000%, are "only" 500%.
Then no companies are going to say that they are replacing employees with robots. What propagandists, “journalists”, call “AI” (you do not have to know anything about programming to say that).
Of course, the companies, which proclaim themselves “private”, do not stop asking billions from the “governments” (which do not exist), that is to say their friends the politicians. After all the main role of politicians, in addition to making themselves richer, is to enrich companies.
Intel, like Microsoft, never saw the usefulness of smartphones. Yet there are more than four billion in the world. Like what, we can have billions in tax havens, be champions in the most diverse shenanigans that does not make it more brilliant.
In addition, Intel, which will receive handsome billions from the “government” supposedly for jobs, while the majority will accumulate with the other billions in tax havens.
Why sell products or services at the price it costs, therefore manufacture to the public, when you can sell it for 1000% or more of its real value to the “private”. In addition, people are buying. They just have to look at NVidia and AMD with their graphics cards.
Moreover, to pay two billion each for a useless B2 bomber.
No money for health, education, housing, food, but billions for the multinationals, which have already accumulated billions in tax havens. In addition, less and less jobs. Nice!
