Can anyone help me figure out the economic incentives on this?
The owners of the corp "Phobos Inc" want to maximize its profit, by maximizing the useful economic output of its workers, by maximizing the skill-levels of those workers for minimal training costs. So, for any given skill, why wouldn't Phobos Inc's managers make arrangements to find the particular individuals who have the highest aptitude for that skill, then send one or more forks of them to live in high-speed simulspace studying that skill to the utmost degree; and, whenever actual work needs to be done involving that skill, making a fresh fork of the most-skilled version of that individual to do that job? (Picking individuals who don't mind being forked for individual jobs might also be a criteria here.)
What would keep Phobos Inc from out-competing its rivals to the point where other corps subscribe to a similar strategy, leading to the corps putting pressure on the available governments to stop bothering wasting time and resources waking up low-skill infugees?
Thank you for your time,
