India is finishing initial success with its ambitious, almost futuristic biomarker ID program.
Cowen reports that India is uniquely well-positioned to implement such a labor-intensive project on such a vast scale because it’s labor force is similarly vast and willing to work for low wages.
Heck, you could even roll this employment program into a skills-retraining program, and make it a condition for receiving extended UI benefits.
Edit: I guess I should point out I don’t think we really need a biomarker ID system here, because we have social security numbers and a functioning IRS (haha) and such. Point remains.
