An interesting book to read is "Re-Imagine" (Author Tom Peters) It is a business book that talks a great deal about the tech advances of the coming
years and how it will affect the workforce.
The working landscape of developed countries is definitely changing. in the next 5-10 years you will see commodities and manufacturing disappear in
North America and other developed nations. We can't compete with the labout forces of China, Indai, and developing Nations.
We will shift to an all tech and information economy. This will undoubtedly have a massive impact on people.
1. Where will unskilled and under-educated people work?
2. What will the impact be of even less active jobs...more sitting at the desk in front of computers.
3. What new tech advances will come about to make our cubicle lives "easier"
