In a clip from his November 2016 talk at the Saïd Business School of the University of Oxford in England, Bloomberg said: “I could teach anybody, even people in this room, to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn.”
“Now comes the information economy, and the information economy is fundamentally different, because it’s built around replacing people with technology,” Bloomberg added. “And the skillsets that you have to learn are how to think and analyze.
“That is a whole degree level different. You have to have a different skillset, you have to have a lot more grey matter.”
Maybe the idea that farming is more complicated than that requires more grey matter to wrap one’s mind around than Mike has access to?
