Biden sweeping new green initiatives
In 1984, GM started Saturn as an independent business to bring robotics into automobile manufacturing. Labor feared the job loss. The Wang word processor replaced thousands of legal secretaries, and their IBM Selectric typewriters. Horseshoes changed shipping loads distances. Technology advancements create an interloper phenomena event disrupting established secure social norms: the story repeats and repeats.
The wagon with wheels and axle technology breached Native lands. The wheel and axle, the horseshoe, the robot, the computer are just things. Technology is the applied use of things and the source of the interloper phenomena.
Since before WWII, the automobile industry has been on notice to save energy and reduce pollution. The interloper waits for presentation in the corporate board rooms, and greed defected the breach. GM claims to have all cars electric by 2035. That power demand will be a breach on the power grid—the workforce balance changes from automobile assembly plants to distributed grids of alternative energy power plants.
The interesting effect of a technology interloper phenomenon is the return on investment. If the return on the investment is positive, the technology demand expands, and job growth expands. The interloper phenomenon becomes and sustainable enterprise.
