The “New Economy” Super Power

They’re singing our song: “It’s a good bet that technology will continue to replace current jobs, from low-skilled assembly jobs to traditionally white-collar, data-intensive jobs like legal research. But it’s an even better bet that our companies and society won’t run out of work that needs doing by humans. We’ll have new kinds of jobs, and they’ll continue to change at a pace unseen in our history. This new reality means that those who will succeed must embrace a continual redefinition of themselves. To thrive in the Next Economy alongside an increasingly sophisticated technological support system, we must be open to continually learning new skills and acquiring new knowledge.”
