Let's talk transportation again

I've been working on a couple of ideas; but, I have also been reading the news. I thought these three stories went together nicely.

Yahoo - CNBC - Ford jumps into car-share business.  I like the comment from the CEO of Ford where he says that their company believes there are more and more people who don't want to own cars and then he says how they are going to sell them cars that they can rent out to others. If you really think about it, you will see what garbage the statements are. Ford and every other car manufacturer wants to sell as many cars as possible; however, they see that self driving and shared cars are the wave of the future.

Bidness - Why autonomous cars could lead to fewer auto sales.  The estimate is a drop in sales of 40% by some. Funny how this article and the prior one seem to fit a pattern and neither refers to the other.

Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) - More than five million Aussie jobs gone in 10 to 15 years. By the way, that is 40% of all their jobs. CEDA - Australia's future workforce? If you want to know what to expect, read these two articles by the people trying to prepare their country for what is coming.
