Often times I think that we worry about the wrong thing and take too short of a view when we talk about automation and robots taking jobs. It is not going to be long before we don’t have enough people for the jobs we’ll need.
From a recent TED Talk:
“It sounds counterintuitive, but by 2030, many of the world’s largest economies will have more jobs than adult citizens to do those jobs. In this data-filled — and quite charming — talk, human resources expert Rainer Strack suggests that countries ought to look across borders for mobile and willing job seekers. But to do that, they need to start by changing the culture in their businesses.”
