In 1900, many people were employed tending horses and playing in orchestras and bands. The car and the phonograph/radio were visible, but hadn't ripped their way through the global economy yet.
Let's take a look at today's economy and discuss the jobs that look like they won't be around very long, as well as those that look really promising into the future.
Together, let's discuss:
- What industries and skill classes will automation nuke?
- How will humans adapt? Where are the opportunities?
- Will new jobs show up in time for the new unemployed?
- Bonus: what should today's youth study?
