A report from researchers at Oxford has suggested that almost half of American jobs will be replaced by technology. While this sounds mighty grim, the upside take from the article is that this will emphasize the development of more creative and social skills. This would certainly be an interesting society! Full of writers and musicians? Maybe….but perhaps people will be more creative about things they are not about now. More refined solutions to ever more complex human problems!
This also hits an EOW theme….how can we really place psychological value in work when so many forces are trying to take it away from us?
