Recently, I was asked to share my thoughts about automation’s impact on the job market. While I don’t agree 100% with the conclusion of this video by Kurzgesagt, the gist is on point.
Historically, automation has created more jobs over the long term. This means that people (and societies) have less time to adapt to the new realities. This transition is going to be intra-generational rather than inter-generational. This is going to have numerous unforeseen consequences.
