Strange. It seems today, like most journalists think that the nr of jobs are constant. If you look at all the manual work that has been automated like washing dishes, vacuum cleaning, factories, building cars, refrigerators instead of having to buy ice etc. you would think that there would be no more jobs left.
Add to that, that we're 7 billion people, and the picture is quite clear. Increase automation of jobs will leads to one or more of the following:
1. New jobs will be created, when new inventions create new markets and demands.
2. Reduced cost of living. You might have noticed that we no longer work 7 days per week. Thanks to capitalism, we can now afford to work 5 days a week, and NOT send our children to work.
Now take 1 and 2 together, and the future will mean more fun jobs, less boring manual jobs, lower cost of living that will enable you to do more with less money, and perhaps an optional 4 day work week.
Now if we extrapolate this to the extreme... I see a future where work is optional and tends to be done in the areas of:
3. "Government" because the politicians always need to make sure the lie that they are needed continues.
So no worry everyone! =) If you want to worry, then worry about the massive surveillance state and potential dictature that might come in the future.
