I've been thinking a lot lately about the dramatic changes we've seen in the working world in the last few years. Most of the jobs I worked when I was in my 20's no longer exist because they've been eliminated due to automation or outsourcing. I worked for years as an accounting clerk, for instance, reviewing spreadsheets and paying bills. Many of the clerical office jobs are now done by computer and bills are paid electronically. Technology increases exponentially. Many of the changes will occur before we even have a chance to notice. It's estimated that self-driving vehicles alone could eliminate more than 3 million jobs in the US. Trucks, taxis, delivery vehicles, fork lifts, all will be self driven sooner than we realize. The bulk of jobs being created in the US are highly skilled, extremely specific jobs that a limited number of highly educated people will be able to perform. I have serious fears about what the future economy will be like for people in their teens and 20's today.
